And here it is, folks! A short film that celebrates the other hidden beauties of Baler, Aurora. This quiet town is most known for its laid-back vibe and endless surf breaks, but little do visitors know that Baler is also host to other numerous enchanting landscapes and destinations. Combined with genuine Filipino hospitality provided by locals and merchants alike. Baler is simply more than just a go-to place for stoked weekend warriors looking for some waves. But also a truly beautiful macrocosm of people, places, nature and activities!

Moving postcards :) Here are some grabs from what we're editing today. Stoked to share soon!



The smell of salt water, the creaking sound your feet make on bamboo bridges, 60mph wind on your face down the highway, and the subtle crackling of burning wood in a bonfire. These are just some of the warm feelings we're having as we edit and color these images.

Sharing these experiences with you all very soon! But here's another screen grab for now :)
