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

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!

18-19th January 2018 French School Kuala Lumpur 56 students surfing lesson session

Good day,

Since the Interlogtual event the waves have been slow for a week now. Slow means, it’s really good for beginners as it’s the most optimum time for learning and picking up surfing. Everyday since then, was a logging day. Really good for the long boarders, as most of the villagers had left to Tioman Island for the “surf event”. So it has been an empty line up for a week or more. Everyday we were gifted with fun waves and still had surf lessons in between.

Not just about surfing – as well about technic, safety and awareness we teach our students. Cr. Photographer: @Raj Hegde


Middle of January we had visitors from the “French School in Kuala Lumpur”. Almost 60 students had their lesson with us within 2 days. It was a lot of fun with them as it was not only about learning to surf, we shared some awareness and safety knowledge about the sea and the sport itself with them as well. Parallel while visiting our surf school, they also participated in collecting trash on the beach and in the village with “Trash Hero Cherating”. beach clean up.

For more info @trashherocherating

Nevertheless this coming weekend we are expecting the new swell to be in and that means it’s going to be super good for learning as well. For those who are keen on signing up a class…do book your surf package or surf lesson with us as the monsoon is not going to last long anymore.

Good morning all,

The Monsoon season 2017/2018 has officially started a few weeks ago. Small swells are already hitting the coast of Malaysia, what is normal for the early season. Whereby there will be lots of small waves, what is really good for beginners that have never surfed before. Cheratingpoint surf school officially opened back on 13th November 2017 . This weekend looking good. We’re hoping to be blessed again with lots of good swells and good times this monsoon season.

Even after your lesson you can hang out with us and get the village vibes! Sharing is caring and if we can make you smile at the end of the day our job is done. You will be taking back home a sweet memory of this place and this is all what we are aiming for! So please come over and check it out by yourself!

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.

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!

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!
