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!

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”

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.

Hi guys,

In the month of March can be actually the last swell for the season. What ever comes after 15th March is just a Big Bonus that will mark “the” end of monsoon season. No one can tell when is the official monsoon end, but from the experience of surfing here in Cherating since end of 90’s, early March is normally the time to say good bye to monsoon. Good times never last long and where’s a beginning there will be always an end as well!! Anyway that was our last surf session with our Surf Package students, some teachers from Terrenganu. This time once again we had the pleasure to make our customers happy by having fun to the max with the waves. They will come back to Cherating again…once the new season is starting.

“Announcing our surf school is closed this month from 15th March 2016 onwards. We will be re-open again in November 2016”

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.

Monsoon Season not gonna last that long anymore, so book your surf packages and lessons with us! Cheratingpoint – the biggest surf school in Malaysia! We are looking forward to welcome you and cater to your needs. Just send us an Email at cheratingpoint@googlemail.com

Good Morning all,

It’s already Thursday middle of the week and the next weekend is already around the corner again! The entire New Year weekend was busy again for us here at Cheratingpoint surf school. We had students from KL, expats from France, Singaporeans, a Korean family with their kids, a Japanese family and some longterm customers. The swell lasted all over the festive season of Christmas and New Year and so everybody, our instructors as well as the students, were happy and satisfied. The monsoon rain didn’t show up again during these days and so we had sunny hot days on the beach. Unique raining season where you really have to take care of any sunburns! Since last Monday the swell took a break and also the local surfers and our instructors had a chill out week. But as it looks like we will be blessed with the next waves by tomorrow! So please come over and join us for your personal surfing experience…

Have a safe journey for whom heading here and see you at the Line-up!
