We spent February 2013 in Boracay, and our main goal was to spend as much time as possible kitesuring. In addition to being a great place to hangout we were thrilled with the services offered at Ocean Repubic. We were able to store our gear there and had the use of their compressor, facilities and kite caddies. The kite caddies were wonderful, the beach can be very slim at high tide, and the breeze blows onshore so I was a bit nervous launching and landing, but they were always there to help out and keep me safe.
Glen is a great guy, and he really took care of us the entire time. I feel that he has a much more professional approach to his shop compared to some others on the beach who seem to strive for the cooler image, but not necessarily the emphasis on safety.
On top of that, the bathroom was always clean and stocked with toilet paper, something I do not take for granted after spending lots of time in the third world.
I'm hoping we'll be lucky enough to get back to Ocean Republic someday soon.
