Five surfing spots in Malaysia you may not have heard of.
Most people think of Malaysia as a food and nature haven.
Not many outside the country seem to be aware that it boasts a number of prime surf spots and a growing local surf community that welcomes visiting surfers with open arms.
Just because there’s sun and rain all year doesn’t mean that you can fly in any time of the year and catch a wave.
the best – and only – time to surf is during the northeast monsoon season, which is usually from october to March.
While the heavy rain and intense waves are danger zones for the general public, it turns the islands on the east coast into a surfer’s playground.
so instead of looking up surf holidays in Australia, Hawaii, south Africa or Britain, you may want to consider these fabulous surfing spots much closer to home. – style/south China Morning Post
