PHILMAR “CHEPOXZ” ALIPAYO
Rank 1 of the first Philippine Surfing Championship Tour (2017)
When we think of Cloud 9 backside attacks, we think of Philmar. He describes himself to be shy but surfing a 5’7” ECS shorty helped him express a more radical side. Like his stance, he upholds a goofy view of life— no stress, just surf and be happy. While on the national tour in Lanuza, Philmar, along with Marama and Luke Landrigan, had the brilliant idea of surfing naked until the last light. But don’t let the crazy antics fool you, this guy’s got the meanest backside barrels and airs that the island’s ever seen.
