Catch LEAD Movement’s sandboarding adventure on TV

Leave a comment

The Ilocos Norte-based Laoag Eco-Adventure Development Movement hopes to attract more tourists through GMA Network’s Ka-Blog. Sandboarding was first introduced on the LEAD Movement blog  in August last year and was later blogged about by travel bloggers, who were in Ilocos early this year, until it was picked up by Ka-Blog. The teen magazine show’s sandboarding episode airs on April 10, 2010 Saturday at 9:00 AM.

Ka-Blog host Mico Aytona hops on a sandboard and discovers the thrill of the latest sport to try… and where else but in the vast sand dunes of  Ilocos?

6 months after the group introduced the latest sport and adventure to try out in Ilocos, LEAD Movement finds itself hosting the Northern Philippines Visitors Bureau “Lakbay Norte” Media tour, through the invitation of Sammy Blas of Saramsam Cafe and Mike Diaz of Herencia de Paoay, in an early morning sandboarding adventure at the dunes in Suba, Paoay. The successful 2-day Ilocos tour was participated in by feature writers and photographers from Philippine dailies, Inquirer and Bulletin; ABS-CBN Global’s TFC and Knowledge Channel; inflight magazines such as Mabuhay, Zest Air, Smile, Sidetrip, Asian Traveler and Sea Air; and freelance writers and bloggers.

Sandboarding is now the latest buzz in the travel/tourism and adventure circles. Being the 10th top destination in the Philippines today, Ilocos Norte hopes to attract more visitors with its new offering.
