We are officially open for surf monsoon season 2017/2018

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.

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!

“The only surf school with updated website in Malaysia”

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.

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!

23-24th January 2016 weekend’s Surf lesson session


Good Morning all,

The new swell has been in since last sunday and it looks like as if it  gonna last till the weekend. The peak was on Monday/Tuesday and it was a really good session with strong current during those days. Today it dropped a bit but it will be still good for beginners to learn during this weekend. At the same time there’s a surf competition at Tioman Island so Cheratingpoint will be empty as most of the guys and fella’s are going for the surf competition. If you have time just head down to Juara Tioman and have a look.

As for today it’s friday again and some of our students already arrived yesterday. Really good they had an exclusive session this morning and you can check it out on our Instagram! For those who are coming for their surf packages and single surf lessons, have a safe journey and see you tomorrow morning in class.

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

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!
