Kite surfing Malaysia

Kitesurfing Malaysia - get here, get high, get stoked!

Kitesurfing seasons

Tip: Looking for a hotel on Tioman? Agoda offers the lowest room rates found.

Are you a kitesurfer based in Singapore or Malaysia and you're wondering where to have a regular blast? Maybe you're thinking of going on periodic kitesurfing safaris to Vietnam or Thailand? Well, before you book your tickets, consider this: there's no need to travel that far. If it's consistently windy conditions you're after, friendly 10-15 knots of wind, then head up to Malaysia. Time it right and you could well be in for a honk-fest!

In fact, during the months of December to March, Malaysia gets hammered by winds of up to 20 knots or more. This wind is part of the yearly monsoon event, dense North-east monsoon winds barreling down the South China Sea, before colliding with Malaysia. Throw the wind-swept 2 meter Malaysia swell into the mix and you've got yourself a happening mix that's ideal for endless fast and furious kitesurfing action.

Other excellent kitesurfing locations during the monsoon are Tioman, Kuantan, Balok, Tanjung Resang, Gorek Bay, Jason Bay and Cerating. These places come with plenty of pretty hefty swell, so you'll be able to hone your wave riding too.

After the monsoon, the so-called intermonsoon months, March to April, winds tend to be light and variable. This is the time to check your gear thoroughly or get the latest board or kite so you're ready for the coming season.

The season that's up next, is the Southwest monsoon, a time when winds around Malaysia are a decent 10-15 knots, more than enough to get your kitesurfing fix. Productive spots to have a go at are at the Southwestern tip of Tioman, just off Kampong Genting, where the SW wind broadsides that exposed part of the island obliquely to create a semi-Venturi effect of up to 20 knots.

The other consistently windy area is at Kampong Juara, at the East coast of Tioman. This bay is blessed with a pretty regular sea breeze. It isn't as strong as the wind at Genting, but it's enough for a solid day's kitesurfing. And since winds here are cross-onshore and the beach is huge, Juara is kitesurfing heaven, because it's easy to launch and easy to come back in, even after you've been becalmed.

Other great spots for hours of cruising or practising your freestyle moves are along the East Coast of Malaysia, i.e. the ones mentioned above, because during the SW monsoon, Peninsular Malaysia's East Coast get its fair share of wicked side-shore winds.

Kitesurfing courses

Do you want to learn how to kitesurf? Whether you're 15 or 55, simply head to Malaysia for a weekend of kitesurfing classes with one of our kitesurfing instructors. Kitesurfing is one of the fastest growing sports world-wide.
