Cherating in Peninsular Malaysia is an exposed point break that only works once in a while. Nov-April (Wet Season) provides best time of year for waves. Offshore winds are from the west northwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the optimum swell angle is from the northeast. No point break here. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up.
