Since the Interlogtual event the waves have been slow for a week now. Slow means, it’s really good for beginners as it’s the most optimum time for learning and picking up surfing. Everyday since then, was a logging day. Really good for the long boarders, as most of the villagers had left to Tioman Island for the “surf event”. So it has been an empty line up for a week or more. Everyday we were gifted with fun waves and still had surf lessons in between.
Middle of January we had visitors from the “French School in Kuala Lumpur”. Almost 60 students had their lesson with us within 2 days. It was a lot of fun with them as it was not only about learning to surf, we shared some awareness and safety knowledge about the sea and the sport itself with them as well. Parallel while visiting our surf school, they also participated in collecting trash on the beach and in the village with “Trash Hero Cherating”. https://www.facebook.com/trashherocherating beach clean up.

Nevertheless this coming weekend we are expecting the new swell to be in and that means it’s going to be super good for learning as well. For those who are keen on signing up a class…do book your surf package or surf lesson with us as the monsoon is not going to last long anymore.

Today, 8th December 2017: The new swell’s already in. It looks like as if we will have a really good surf session throughout the entire weekend. The peak will be expected on Saturday. We’ve been really busy the last 2 weekends, since we re-opened for the new season. We were packed with lessons that our students already pre-booked in advance.
Every day at the moment we are running classes, no matter weekdays or weekends. It’s great to see “old” faces from the previous years and meet up new faces who want to become engaged with surfing as well. The respond and feedback we get shows us that we are on the right track to share our passion with everybody who wanna try and find out about the feeling of riding waves.
For those who are still uncertain if you should come over or not, just give it a try! Never try, never know. And even if it will be just a one time experience, the memory nobody can take away from you. If you get hooked up with this sport, better prepare yourself for a life finding every possible gap to escape to the seaside.
We are looking forward to welcome you here & waiting for any kind of inquiries which we can help you out with. Just drop us an email at email@example.com
Meanwhile have a great weekend & see around sooner or later!

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.
Please visit the link below for the lessons with our students for the last season 2016/17. Cheratingpoint surf school established since 2008 :
2 weeks of January 2017have passed already. Time flies pretty fast. The previous swell was over Christmas and was really good. It lasted till tuesday 10th January 2017. All our students had fun during this time and everyone had a great time with us. Thank’s again to our local Cheratingpoint instructors who are sharing their time and experience with the students.
At the moment we are waiting for the new swell to come in and it looks like as if it will pick up by tomorrow (Tuesday). It will be consistent throughout the week and will have its peak on the weekend. Again we are really stoked to have all our students with us for the last few weeks. Thank’s for coming over everyone!
Those who are planning to book their Chinese new year sessions, please do so asap as it will be a busy time and most of the rooms will be full. Make your booking today, as monsoon not gonna last long. Looking forward to have you guys with us at Cheratingpoint surf school, the biggest surf school in Malaysia.
“Our Standard timing on a day with swell/wave’s will be morning at 9.00am and Afternoon at 2.30pm” the schedule can be shifted accordingly to swell size and tides.Our instructor are punctual,Reliable and cheerfull most of the time.
New year’s 2017 session + 6-8th January 2017 weekend
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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…)
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!

“Monsoon season will be starting again late October/early November, ending Mid March”
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.
