Late February 2018 surfing lesson session.

Good Afternoon to all,

We are facing the last corner of the monsoon season 2017/18 by now and we are glad that our customers on the last February weekend had gentle waves to play with. Especially for the kids it is important that the conditions are not too rough. Beside a French family, we had some Germans,Chile, local Chinese from KL  and a girl from Finland.

As it is towards end of Monsoon the weather is mostly hot and sunny. At the moment we are waiting for the most probably last swell of the season. It is expected to come in by Thursday and should last throughout the weekend, hopefully until middle of next week. After that the sea will be calm and the surfboards can rest until the new season will start in November again. So for those, who don’t want to wait until the end of the year to get to know what it means to ride a wave, better hurry up and book your package or surf lessons for this coming weekend asap.

For any inquiries please contact us via email at or give us a quick phone call under 012-9337590.

We are looking forward to close up the season together with you…so  hopefully see you around in these couple of days!

Chinese new year 2018,17-18th Feb 2018 weekend surf lesson session at Cheratingpoint surf school

Good day to all,

The Chinese New Year Week started for us from Wednesday onwards. We were blessed with really good waves for beginners and all our customers really enjoyed the good surf conditions beside the friendly sunny weather. Our students were “mixed” as usual, some locals, some Japanese, some expats from Singapore and KL and even from the far end of Scandinavia-Finland.

Beside surf classes we had a lot of people who just rented a board to play with the waves on their own. The surf point was definitely busy one more time this season. We are happy and thankful to look back at the surf season and especially the festive season (Christmas, New Year, Thaipusam and Chinese New Year) where so many people, who wanted to try surfing, found their way to us. We like to share the fun and experience of playing with the waves, no matter at which age – from small to the elderly generation – it’s never too late!

This coming weekend might me the last swell for the season. So if you’re interested, better pack your stuff and come over to explore what it really means to ride a wave! We are waiting here to welcome you! Just give us a call (012-9337590) or drop us an email at

Some shots from the weekdays and weekend action.

1-4th February 2018 surf lesson session at Cheratingpoint surf school

Hi to all,

The Thaipusam and Wilayah holidays was a busy, long weekend for us at Cheratingpoint. After the visit of almost 60 students from the French School in Kuala Lumpur middle of January, now quite a few of them decided to come over with their families for a short weekend getaway. During the whole week throughout the weekend there were good waves here in Cherating. Most of the students had fun as usual and left the water with a big smile on their faces at the end of the session. Now the first week of february has passed by already, which means that the “end of season clock” is ticking louder and louder. Just more or less one month to go for the surf season 2017/18 here in Malaysia.


Chinese New Year is around the corner and we are expecting that it’s gonna be another busy weekend here in Cherating. So please book your surf packages and surf lessons in advance as there might be lots of people and the motto is: First come, first served. The forecast for this coming weekend looks really good for the beginners and the new swell is expected to be in by early next week. Perhaps during the Chinese New Year we will be having good waves as well.

Introducing our new Glamping surf package:

All our photos show the very first ride of our students. We do share “The Malaysian Surf Experience” – so see you guys soon!

Dear Customers,

The monsoon season has already come to an end and as we all know good times never last long……Cheratingpoint surf school is officially closed for the season 2016/2017 since the first week of March. It was a really good season for us and we hope our customers can say that as well about their surf experience with Cheratingpoint. The most consistent wave period was during December and January. Thank you again to all our customers and surf students for signing up with us. We tried to make the best out of your surf lessons even during hard weather conditions and some had the right timing to enjoy grilling sessions with the locals as well. This is the trademark of Cherating, mostly everything happens spontaneously and the best sessions and parties are never planned in advance.

At the moment we still receive a lot of emails and phone calls from people who wanna learn to surf. Too bad guys, but March-October is the off season for surfing in Malaysia. Please try to come during November – March. We will start to take bookings from August onwards. Would be great to have you guys with us all year round but mother nature is only offering us waves during monsoon season which lasts from “NOVEMBER-MARCH IN MALAYSIA”.

For the travellers who are visiting Cherating during the summer season (April-October), enjoy your time here and if you are keen on riding some waves one day please come back during monsoon. We are looking forward to have all of you guys here, our longterm customers and new faces to the scene as well. Meanwhile take it easy and have a good time whatever you do. Take care and see you around when the surf’s up again.

The last swell was really good and we have surfed it to the maximum. Everyday during this period we had lots of students and our daily lessons in the morning and afternoon were really fun for them.

Looks like as if the new swell, accordingly to the forecast, will last through the weekdays and weekend. As for those who are planing to come  27th Feb to 5th of March…please come over. Our surf school  will be open till the first week of March and will be closing after that. Next weekend will be our last corner before we gonna pack our stuff and say good bye to the monsoon.

Surf update for 15th Feb 2017 at Cherating Beach + Photo’s update for Cheratingpoint Surf School

Zairil Zainal founder Cheratingpoint surf school


Good day everyone,

This morning’s surf was really fun. Cherating 1st point was a good 4 foot, clean, glassy and barreling during low to mid tide. Definitely the best session at 1st point in a couple of years. Wave condition is better today now that the wind has backed off slightly. Yesterday’s surf was really fun too with overhead sets and strong current! It’s been a great week of swell so far everyone!

Current swell condition

The swell condition for this weekend looks to be mellowing down and will be perfect for surf lessons! Here’s some photos of our students having loads of fun last week and the previous week. It looks like we are already headed towards the tail end of this season’s monsoon so book your lessons with us now to enjoy the waves. There will probably be another 2-3 weeks of waves left before we say adios amigos to what has been a wonderful season again. Stay stoked and see you all soon!

Founder Cheratingpoit surf school.

Surf lesson session, Mid-January through Chinese New year 2017 at CheratingPoint Surf School

Dear Customers,

For this season Christmas, New year’s and Chinese New Year have passed by. And it’s already February by now! Time flies and we had a great time. Nevertheless at the moment we are in between swells again. This coming weekend 11-12th February 2017 the forecast looks like as if there’s going to be a good swell arriving. For sure plenty of surf action you can get at Cherating neither for the beginners or anyone that knows how to surf.

Last week was Chinese New Year and Cheratingpoint surf school/Matahari guest house had been really busy for about 10 days in a row. Lots of students, plenty of guests who were having fun during that festive week and the swell was lasting for quite some time. We had lots of good surf sessions during the morning and lessons were running classes for the whole 10 days. Lots of fun surf, Party and as well grilling season. Kampung Cherating Lama has been really busy during these days.

So before monsoon’s and the surf season’s gonna end, better make up your mind if you want to come over for a short weekend getaway to experience the kampung and surf life here. One single wave can offer you a ride up to 300 meters and it will be a memory you won’t forget for sure!

For any inquiries regarding surfing here in Cherating, please feel free to contact us via Email or simply give us a call at 012-9337590. We will be pleased to cater to your needs and expectations! Wishing all of you a good week ahead & see you around!

27-29th December 2016 surf session.



Surf lesson session, weekend 3-4th December 2016 at CheratingPoint Surf School

Good morning to all,

It’s still the beginning of monsoon season and the swell is picking up really slowly. That’s kind of good to have slow waves for the students, a small swell is really ideal to learn surfing as the current won’t be that strong as usual. Recommended for the ones that never surfed before in their lives and we are willed to share the experience with you.

Looks like as if the “Cherating International Surf competition 2016” will be kicking off this friday on 9th December 2016 and we are wishing good luck to all the participants. For those who are free, please come over and have a look. We will be operating as usual.

Current update: We are waiting for the swell to pick-up but for surf lessons it’s still good to go. To all the students that have booked their surf packages/surf lessons with us – have a safe journey to get here and looking forward to have you guys with us.

Here are some shots from the last 2 weekends (26-27th November and 3-4th December 2016 lessons). Hope you guys were enjoying with us and we are hoping to see you again. Most of the shots were taken while they were riding  their first south china sea waves…..and at the end of the day when our students are leaving…..there’s a big smile in everyones face who joined Cheratingpoint surf school for their first wave experiences.

So don’t waste any time and contact us to sign up for your first und unforgettable surf memory with Cheratingpoint!
