Singapore zilch!

Closest place for any decent surfing is Bali in Indonesia or Phuket in Thailand.

Malaysia: The season begins somewhere around November and ends around February. You will find surfers at Desaru beach, Teluk Chempedak beach , Cherating beach, Teluk Kalung beach and Kijal beach. All these beaches are along the east coast of West Malaysia

Well I lived in Indonesia for a year, there are some closer to Singapore than going all the way to Bali, I just wanted to know if there were any within driving distance of Singapore.

add Bintan to that list for the winter months

I'm still up for these kinds of trips for anyone interested (after posting on this subject a few times) in venturing a trip, but I'm a longboarder and not looking for typical Bali-type waves, my 9'2" won't make those takeoffs

Desaru is supposed to be the closest but is very iffy and small when it has any waves

SMS listed more than I knew of, and I have not got my act together and been to them yet

No breaks close by here... I've had to start wakeboarding.. Only problem is, when someone else is boarding, many beers are consumed so when I eventually get to strap the board back on my feet, I'm toast!!!

You can try checking out http://www.manamana.com in Bintan. They have surfing I believe but only during the NE monsoon period I think. This place is only a 45mins ferry ride away, so it's very convenient.

Or if you windsurf, there's always PA Seasports Club at East Coast Park.

EADG, have you surf Bintan yet ? Is it any good?

btw, there are surf spot in Bali than can accommodate longboard surfing. I surf Canggu in Feb 2006 with 9'4 and had fun.

I heard that Dreamland is pretty mellow for longboard as well. Seen the place but have not surf there. Was too big for my skill.

Looking for expat surfers!

I'm here studying on exchange program from Sydney. Have a trip booked for Bali in Sept/Oct but am interested in searching other nearby countries for waves. If anybody is planning a trip and need another person for filling up accommodation, car, whatever let me know!
