Surf’s up!

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
