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 email@example.com
It’s been a while since our last update. Apologies for that, but it’s been some busy weeks for us. The new swell which came in after Christmas was really constant and lasted throughout the New Year. We had lots of students, lessons and board rentals during this period. We are trying our best in what we are doing, and thank’s to all our customers who are coming back again and again and the newcomers of course as well.
By now half of the monsoon season has passed by already and the rest of January will be over soon as well. Without noticing the time is moving on so quick. Nevertheless there will be still a few more swells to go before the surf season 2017/18 gonna come to an end. So don’t forget to sign up with us here at Cheratingpoint surf school.
This year it is our 10 years anniversary since we founded Cheratingpoint those days. And we are really grateful for what we are today! Who would have expected that when we started some surfboard rental, with just 4 boards by the way, back in 2008. All these years we went through so far, have been really good and we met a lot of interesting, funny, kind and determined people who came to us to become part of the malaysian surf experience. We love our line and also in the future we will just concentrate on what we’re good at: surf packages, surf lessons and surf photography. People come to us from all over the world to learn surfing in Cherating – thank you for that guys. It’s really amazing! So come and join us, as the monsoon not gonna last long anymore! Just drop us an email or give us a quick call, we’re here to serve you accordingly to your needs.
Have a great week & see you guys sooner or later around!
last week the swell kicked in on Thursday and kept on going over the weekend. Our students had not the easiest conditions to get their first surfing experiences due to the strong current. But everyone was highly motivated and tried his/her best. Beside a French family from KL we had some local customers from KL as well. They all were really satisfied with our Cherating local instructors who gave their best to make very one of them happy and bring back a good memory of their first surfing experiences in Malaysia. We hope to see you all again! Keep on practising and enjoy the water time!

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.
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 1 action photos can be found here, as we mostly update on our Facebook page:
Local merchandise, food and snack tent – Local business. See below Cheratingpoint officials and unofficial Videographer, Photog and Marshals.
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!

Men’s Division Final
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…
