1st Edition Malaysia Surf Festival Cheratingpoint cup 2015 Short review’s

logogogogo

moin-moin,

Earlier this year, in January 2015 Cheratingpoint Surf school organised their first event. It was called 1st Edition Malaysia Surf Festival 2015 – “Cheratingpoint Cup 2015”, associated with JKK Kampung Cherating, good Friends, local and international surfing brands at Cherating Beach, Kuantan Malaysia.

The event took place for 2 days, with really good swell conditions for Cherating. Its was an invitational event and selected local “heroes” from Kuala Terengganu, Pulau Kapas, Kemaman, Cherating, Kuantan, Johor , Pulau Tioman, Pulau Langkawi, Kuala Lumpur and also some surfers from Singapore and Japan took part in the competition. It was divided into a Men’s, Women’s, Longboard’s, Bodyboard’s and Grommet’s division. Over all we had almost 60 Participants for this small scale event.

The main motive for the event is to support the Malaysian surf community, Cherating Village and as well to attract local and international tourists  to visit Cherating as it’s a well known surf destination in Malaysia from November until March.  Not to say, that the government/Tourism of Pahang doesn’t support such events – yes they do! But the people that run the event so far didn’t make it right!

It started with the beach cleaning program, one day before the event took place at Eco bar and 3rd Point Beach Chalet .Thank you to all that have supported the beach cleaning program and we need to continue this kind of gathering in the future to keep our environment  at Cherating Beach clean and healthy. We have the opportunity and duty to create an awareness in the people’s mind. Thank you to Encik Musadeq for the Tea and Nasi lemak meals for the people who were involved on that day.

Day one.

We kicked off early in the morning with a small breakfast directly at the contest site. Thank you to Mak The and Pak The family who runs the Matahari Guest House. They were preparing the breakfast and lunch for the participants and helpers during the 2 days Cheratingpoint Cup 2015 event which was provided by the event organisers. Our first round started at 8.30 a.m. and was running smooth until 1.30 p.m. On day one we completed round 1 for the Men’s, Women’s, Bodyboarder’s, Grommet’s and long boarder’s division.

During the evening we had a Bbq session at Eco Bar for the contestants, officials and marshals. Thank you as well to Lila Wadi Restaurant and Kula Cakes for sponsoring the Bbq and grilling gathering. Later on there was also a bourn fire provided for those who wanted to hang out a bit longer. Not just the participants were there, mostly all the people who were more or less involved or just interested villagers and friends. A so called evening for the community! We also provided some canopies for the local villagers where they could sell their homemade food, snacks and some local merchandise products to the guests during this 2 days event. Thank god the weather and swell conditions for this weekend were absolutely  great! Cause you never know how it’s gonna be – Monsoon is always there to surprise you!!!

Day Two:

We kicked off at 8.30 a.m. as well on the second day. The conditions were high tide in the morning and once the tide dropped the waves got better and better. So the performances especially in the long boarder’s and men’s division were pretty awesome and the crowd was stoked to watch it. Due to these good conditions we decided to make a 30 minutes final men’s round. That was definitely the highlight of the event and everybody was supporting it by being at the beach during that time. The spirit of community was there!

The second day was still and consistence wave during the last day of the event
On the second day were still consistent wave conditions

The prize giving took place at Eco Bar Rahnapipin. At 4.00pm was the ceremony started. Even the Chief of the village came over to hold a speech and gave out some prizes. Lots of people, locals and tourists, joined and gave their support. At this point we would like to say thank you one more time to all the sponsors, the media and the volunteers. Without all of them we could have never made it happen! And so we are working hard on it to realise the 2nd edition for the next Monsoon season to let the seed grow…

Chinese new year week/weekend – February 2015 surf lesson session at cheratingpoint surf school

www.cheratigpoint.com-2031

Good day to all,

The Chinese New Year weekend had been really busy and the village was packed with festive season vacationers. The wave conditions were still perfect for beginners to have a great time in the water. The current was really friendly and so our students could all manage to catch some waves for the first time in their lives. We are happy that we could welcome one big group from Singapore, some students from Penang, a family from Denmark, From Holland and at the same time some walk-in customers as well. All of them really enjoyed their time in Cherating including beach barbecue at the Eco Bar and bonfire at  Mazlan’s Beach Bar. At the moment we are waiting for one more swell to arrive before the season is going to end. For updates on that just write us an Email or contact us by phone. We try to make out the best of it as long the monsoon’s still lasting!

30th December 2014.

Dear customers,

Sorry guys from the last X-Mas Surf Session I don’t have any photos of you guys, due to the “heavy rain” situation so I couldn’t bring out the camera. At the same time I was injured at my ribs. Not because of surfing, the injury occurred during  helping my friend “Poklan” to move his stuff out of his river home. Was a good session in fact and all the student had fun as well with the good waves. That  is  monsoon guys, lots of wave and lots of rain. Every season is different and as well the weather changes. Was a quite busy week and Our Matahari Guest house was completely full house with normal customers and as well with our students. Will shoot you guys next time when you come back here for future session.

The current situation in Cherating is that we have no floods, normal conditions. Only Kuantan (out circuit) and Kemaman are effected. Thank god that the rain has stopped and the sun came out as well today. For those who are planning to come over this coming weekend pls check the road situation KL-Kuantan highway. The alternative route (KL-Seremban-Kuala Pilah-Muadzam Shah-Pekan-Kuantan-Cherating) today was ok, but you have to face some jams on the way. So for now we are looking forward to our upcoming event this weekend, Cherating Point Cup 2015. If you guys are interested, please come over and join the crowd! more update will come.
