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!

Surf lesson session,New year 2018,6-7th Jan,13-14th Jan weekend and weekdaysat CheratingPoint Surf School

Good morning to all,

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!

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 update for 15th Feb 2017 at Cherating Beach + Photo’s update for 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!

Founder Cheratingpoit surf school.

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 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!

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!

Our Christmas Weekend’s session


17-18th December 2016 weekend session.

Surf lesson session, weekend 10-11th December 2016 at CheratingPoint Surf School

Saturday weekend 10-11th December 2016 session ©


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 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…)


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

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
