Yassi Pressman spotted surfing in Siargao

 Several celebrities are actually totally into surfing, and Yassi Pressman is the newest personality who tried the water sport.

Anyone who ever tried riding a wave knows that surfing can be quite addictive, and Yassi expressed grateful after she experienced riding on her surf board to catch the waves in Siargao.

"I realized that my first couple of surfing lessons were very similar to the way I take care of my mental health" 

"I needed some time to get away. I spontaneously planned a trip to the beach with no itenirary/schedule and ended up trying to learn how to surf.

"To find some of the best surf spots in Siargao a boat has to drop you off in the middle of the ocean, then you got to paddle to get to the waves, and on some days you got to paddle really FAAAAAAR. It was hard because I wasn't used to using so much of my upper body, and going against the current just to get to the starting point, wasn't easy at all," she said.

Of course, keeping balance on the board is definitely not easy for a first timer.

"Then, when I got to the line, kelangan patient ka, kasi madami pang ibang nakaabang. The actual wait for the wave makes me nervous….there is a lot of suspense and build up. 

"It was very challenging for me to get up on my board, you have to time when to push up and keep your form. When I finally did it, the next thing I thought about was trying to balance in the rush of it all and stand up steady on my board. Or else I'll fall..."

While it doesn't seem like she managed to actually ride a wave, it still looks like she had plenty of fun!

"Before I actually got to ride a wave to the end, there were many moments like this. Lol.

"When you actually fall, you must think fast, don't panic (which was hard considering you are actually being pulled by the waves under the water, right?) anyway, STAY RELAXED. You have to get some air then paddle for your life so that the next couple of waves do not come at you hard, and you won't get in the way of any other person possibly surfing your way."
