surf to the max from Malaysia
“After surfing down in KM26 I was happy to get back to the tip of Borneo to surf, mainly due to the water not being blue and the beach being mud or reclaimed land, the waves were OK 3ft plus and I met some locals and expats while there. Only a few weeks ago I met the same local surfers when they came to the Tip of Borneo .”
