Cherating in Peninsular Malaysia is an exposed point break that does not work very often. Nov-April (Wet Season) provides favoured time of year for waves. Works best in offshore winds from the west northwest. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the northeast. There is no point break. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Rarely crowded here.
