This is a feature story published by Mabuhay about female skimboarders in Dahican, where new sea turtles are hatched along the shore every year.

“Mati City’s skimboarding team is more than just a collection of athletes. By spearheading conservation efforts and organizing annual tournaments, the group is responsible for much of the tourists now flocking to the Mindanao destination – and its first female skimboarder just might be the best in all the land.”
