Cagayan de Oro’s leading resort hotel, Apple Tree Resort & Hotel, in partnership with CHOOSE Philippines (ABS-CBN’s Travel Insider), Engineer Danilo Daroy, Business Week Mindanao, and Mindanao Daily News, with the full support of the Department of Tourism Region 10, organized a skim boarding event dubbed as “SHORE BREAKS 2: A Skim-boarding Competition” last May 22, 2016. The contest was held at the shore line of the said resort hotel.
Officially launched last May 16, 2015, Shore Breaks 2 was “formulated to promote the sport to Northern Mindanao and provides opportunities for the youth to actively engage in programs and activities upholding the quality of life”. This was according to Mr. Clement Dampal II, the Marketing and PR Officer of Apple Tree and the Project Director of the event. Dampal is recognized as the person responsible for coming up with the name of the competition.
This year’s Shore Breaks competition was bigger and better. “Shore Breaks is considered the biggest skim boarding event in Northern Mindanao, where skim boarders of all ages, from beginners to professionals, from different municipalities in Northern Mindanao gathered,” revealed Ms. Bjanesha M. Emphasis, Apple Tree Resort Hotel’s General Manager.
Shore Breaks 2 started at 7am and closed with a program at 6pm. It was hosted by Mr. Steve Norman Ebonia, an award winning skim boarder and surfer. The competition was divided into two different categories: the Kid Category for skim boarders 7 to 15 years of age, and the Adult Open Category for skim boarders 16 years old and above.
The Adult Open Category champion recieved Php5,000, while the Kid Category winner was rewarded with a cash prize worth Php3,000.
