Gear Check : Elaine Abonal

Stepping up for the second instalment of our new Gear Check series is Philippines based Breo Hero, surfer and businesswoman Elaine Abonal. Read on for the lowdown on her essential surfing kit…

Hello my fellow Breo lovers!!

Life has been crazy in the island. Good crazy. I’ve been living in Siargao island for the past 2 months and have a couple of weeks left before heading home and continue my work with Surfista Travels Philippines.

I feel very lucky!
