Hi guys,

it's been a while since I posted on this thread, by now I'm in Singapore for almost a month and kinda set up everything, so if there's still someone interested in surfing (not windsurfing), I'd like to join.

So the spot easiest to reach would be Bintam starting in November? I don't care about big waves - actually I'd prefer to avoid swell higher than maybe 3 or 4ft, since I don't have very much experience and it's already a year since I've been surfing the last time. So what I'd need is basically a place to rent a board.

would be cool if someone wants to join :)

There is a windsurfing course available for up to 3 people if I'm not mistaken from 5-6th of Nov from 2-5pm. Price is a little over 150 about (have to ask again to confirm though) for 2-day course.
Place is near Bedok MRT Stn.
Post here if you're interested? Cheers.

btw, is that a typo, 'fall off cheek", not "fall of"?
