As the northeast trade winds blow across the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia in October creating impressive swells, the laidback coastal town of Cherating in Pahang lures wave riders from across the world.
Cherating’s surf scene emerged in the 1990s and the Ministry of Tourism and Culture Pahang (MOTAC) has been developing it ever since by organising regional tournaments, as well as big surf events like Cherating International Surfing Competition. Today, Cherating is home to a local surfing community and attracts enthusiasts from around the world.
