Discription of surf spot: Cherating, Malaysia
Very long (1.5km)sand bottom left hander point break that peels perfectly into Cherating bay/beach. The wave has a good shape and barrells thoughout on a strong swell. Ridable on 1-2 foot of swell but really goes off over 3foot. Only breaks from Nov/Dec to April when swells are generated in the South China Sea. Protected headlands with typical winter wind pattern of offfore (southwest) in the morning and offshore (northwest) in the arvo. The break is so long your legs get sore and you have to run back around. Another long left break (1.2km) lies just north and is always a foot or two bigger (paddle north from Cherating Point then walk around beach) Some local surfers and 2 expat Aussies, friendly locals.
