Here’s Philmar Alipayo’s Life-Threatening Surfing Experience

PHILMAR ALIPAYO – Surfing champ Philmar Alipayo shared his life-threatening experience in surfing.

Surfing, like any other outdoor recreational activity, comes with its own set of risks and dangers. While surfing can be an exhilarating and enjoyable experience, participants need to be aware of potential hazards.

Some dangers associated with surfing include drowning, rip currents, impact injuries, weather conditions, and equipment issues among others. To minimize these risks, surfers should prioritize safety, undergo proper training, use appropriate safety gear, be aware of their surroundings, and respect both the ocean and other surfers.

Philmar Alipayo recently took to Instagram to recount a frightening incident during one of his surfing sessions. In his post, the surfing champ provided a detailed account of attempting to approach a large wave to ride it on his surfboard.

According to his narration, as he maneuvered through the wave, he found himself unable to successfully navigate it. In an unexpected turn of events, the surfboard swiftly returned toward him, with the tail section and fin striking him on the shoulders and neck.

“Went out for a quick surf. Nag-paddle ako tungo sa mas malaking alon at saka nag-barrel pero hindi ako nakalusot…

“Ang board ko, biglang bumalik sa akin at tinamaan ako ng tail ng board ko saka ang kanyang fin sa aking balikat at leeg,” Philmar added.

Philmar Alipayo expressed that even though he sustained a serious injury, he considers himself fortunate because the situation could have resulted in something far more severe.

“Posible na mas grabe pa siguro yung nangyari pero swerte pa rin at saka salamat na ito lang ang nangyari,” Philmar said in his IG post.

“Masakit yung leeg ko at namamaga pero okay lang ako,” he further said.
