Ending Monsoon season 2016/2017.We will re-open again November 2017

Cheratingpoint surf school team.

 

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 lesson session, weekend 17-19th February 2017 at CheratingPoint Surf School

Good Afternoon,

It’s Saturday 25th February 2017 and it seems to be flat again. Has been 2 days now lay day and it looks like as if the new swell is picking up again by tomorrow or the latest by monday. 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. Please book now as we still have slots and rooms till 1st week of March.

For more updates on the wave conditions for this coming week, please have a look on our Facebook page.

We’re looking forward to close up the monsoon season 2016/17 with you together and hope everyone’s had a great time here! For any inquiries just drop us an email at cheratingpoint@googlemail.com

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!

For any inquiries regarding surfing here in Cherating, please feel free to contact us via Email cheratingpoint@googlemail.com 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!

“We highly recommend this weekend 11-12th February 2017 for surfing lesson as the forecast look really good”

Good Morning to all,

It’s 6.30 a.m. in the morning, cold and it’s raining outside. The waves have been really good for the past few days. It started on the Christmas weekend and lasted all the way till New Year. Every each of our students had plenty of fun and the waves were catering from beginner to advanced surfer level as well. It’s peak time of the monsoon season now. Since Christmas day we had non stop surf lessons going on until now. Everyday new students – we love to share our experience with you. Wanna learn to surf in Malaysia you know where to go. We are always here waiting for you during the monsoon season.

Today’s Saturday 31st December 2016, the last day of the year: This weekend looks like it’s gonna be the peak of the swell. Normally today supposed to be the kick-off of Cheratingpoint Cup 2016 surf competition but we are postponing the event to next year. Wave/swell hight should be increasing by today and gonna last all the way through the new year. For all the students/customers that are coming this weekend please drive safely and looking forward to have you guys here. As for those having sessions this morning ….see you guys in a bit. There will be lots of fun waves and wishing every one a “Happy new year ” bye, bye 2016 and hello 2017……good health and good wealth to everyone!

Good Morning to all,

It’s been our most busy weekend this season so far. It started on Friday (9/12/2016) and lasted until Wednesday (14/12/2016).  Lots of happy students went back with a big smile on their face, which is our biggest target regarding our customers. Having students with us doesn’t just mean that we send them to the beach and try surfing – no, at the same time we educate them about the surfing ethics like “never drop in on others” and “how to read a wave or wait at the right point” in our advanced classes.

While the surf competition was going on last weekend we brought all our newcomer students for their session down the line. We had great conditions from Saturday until Tuesday before the swell dropped on Wednesday. Anyway it has been still ideal for those who are the first time on a surfboard.

Today, on 18th December, we are expecting the new swell/waves to come in. We are hoping there will be good conditions again and they will stay through the week up to the next weekend. Hopefully all our students from the last sessions enjoyed their stay with us and had plenty of fun as well. Looking forward to have you guys back here in Cherating again for another surfing experience.

Christmas and New Year is around the corner and  it will be a long festive holiday for everyone. For those who wanna learn to surf we are here, waiting for you. Please prebook  your surf packages or single lessons  with us now, as we can’t promise to have anymore rooms or slots last minute. At this time of the year normally most of the rooms around Cherating are fully booked! As from our experience over the years the waves/swell will be really good at this time of the year. For more info please write to us at cheratingpoint@googlemail.com or call us at +60129337590. We love to share our surf experience with all the newcomers and students……and you will bring back the memories of riding the first wave in your life. By the way, we don’t take photos of our students with Handys…)

OUR LESSON

So see you around & have a good festive season with your family & friends!

Regards,

Cheratingpoint Team

 

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!

we are officially open for surf monsoon season 2016/2017

Good morning all,

The Monsoon season 2016/2017 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 12th November 2016 and on that weekend we were blessed with a few days of fun surf sessions with our students. November is going towards the end and at the moment we are still waiting for the first proper ground swell. Looks like this coming Monday the new swell is coming in and we are ready to take your bookings. We’re hoping to be blessed again with lots of good swells and good times this monsoon season.

Cheratingpoint has been established in 2008, the oldest surf school in Cherating and by now as well the biggest one in Malaysia. Our instructors are well trained and willed to share their own surfing knowledge with you. We make an adventure out of your first surfing experience and while being professional at the same time we don’t miss out on the fun part. 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!

Eine neue Saison steht vor der Tür und wir freuen uns ebenso auf unsere internationalen Gäste aus der ganzen Welt! Cherating bietet optimale Bedingungen für Surfanfänger, keine Korallen, Point Break, lange Wellen und eine freundliche Surf Community. Gerne teilen wir unsere langjährige Erfahrung und geben auch über die Surfstunden hinaus einen Einblick in’s Dorfleben. Cherating ist definitiv ein Ort, an dem man länger als geplant verweilen kann. Hat einen der “Dorf-Spirit” erst einmal eingefangen dann lässt er einen nicht mehr los! Life is simple: Surf, eine gute Zeit mit guten Leuten & Zeit zum relaxen! Was will man mehr?!? Findet es selbst heraus…wir freuen uns auf Eure Anfragen per Email oder via whats app.

As for those who wanna get detailed information, feel free to call us at +60129337590 or email us at Cheratingpoint@googlemail.com
