No, the site "Zorb Boracay" is not an official ZORB site, it is a fake. It is also using fake globes that could be unsafe and is directly misleading the public into thinking it is associated with ZORB Ltd.
ZORB Ltd will ensure this company is included on their list of "ZORBscams Operators" for other potential customers to see.

Not the most usual thing to do on vacation but education while relaxing is a great concept especially on such an incredibly beautiful island. Great place at Paradise English Language Center or call them at (+63) 36 288 4544
There are many dive shops to choose from in Boracay. Experienced divers recommend the wreck, and the wall dive at Yapak.

This is claimed to be the best spa in the Philippines and one of the best in Asia - its numerous Asian awards are proof enough. Rates start at US$45 or so. Newcomers to the spa experience should try the Mandala Signature massage.
Kiteboarding is one of the most popular new sports on the island. Hangin Kiteboarding partners Chris Awe, Nenette Graf and Angel Parzhuber brought the sport to the island in 2002 and taught some expat friends. The following year they were business competitors and Bulabog beach was never the same again. Now there are 7 kiteschools and many may try to put up more schools but the mafia BWA is there to regulate the activities on that beach and keep it safe for all beach users. The friendly guys at Ocean Republic (Bulabug Beach) have everything you need to help you get started. Rates are around $18 an hour, but are discounted if you choose half-day or full-day packages. Check out Islakite as well, very good kitesurfing school distributing F-one kites.
