Regards Bibi (SURF to the MAX)

The waves here are perfect for learning in a very safe part of the TIP of BORNEO. The beach is beautiful and white and the water clear and blue. The waves come fairly regularly and the season is longer than mainland Malaysia , we have waves from June to September which is the South West monsoon and again in October to February, which is the North East monsoon; the pick being the holiday season Nov to Jan for consistency.

It's not like Bali: the waves are intermediate level safe when you are taught with the correct methods like ours at SURF to the MAX , SEE YOU THERE. Surfing is the best fun in the world.”
