Windsurfing Tioman

Home / Tickets / Update* / Blog

Even though the strongest winds blow around Tioman from November/December to February/March, i.e. during the North-east monsoon, windsurfing in this season is not really recommended unless you're a pro. Conditions during these months are nothing short of challenging. Think: 3 meter swell and rollers, along with howling winds coming in at 20-30 knots. It's also pretty wet, especially during December.

However, from April until November, the consistent southeasterly/southwesterly winds, flat waters, light currents and sandy beaches make Tioman a very attractive windsurf destination for beginners and intermediates.

Keen to learn how to windsurf?

The aim of our Learn to Windsurf program is to give windsurfers-to-be a safe and fun introduction to windsurfing. By the end of the course, you should have the basics down comfortably, including the theory and basic manoeuvres, such as uphauling, getting to the balanced position, sheeting in, pointing up and bearing away, as well as basic tacking and even gybing. In short, you'll be able to windsurf in and out with relative ease. Albeit with some sore muscles the day after. But then, that's part and parcel of becoming fit eh :).

Our Windsurfing package includes:

If you're already a windsurfing crack and you want to bring your own gear to have a bash off Tioman during the SW season, then go for it. The windy spots during this season (April to October) are the South end of the Tioman East Coast, near Coconut Grove and just opposite Genting, near the South of Tioman, due to the local so-called Venturi effect. This corner is good because of the flat-ish water here too - ideal for speed surfers and slalom surfers.

But you'll find you can windsurf leisurely pretty much anywhere around Tioman during the SW season, apart from the big Tekek bay, as this is sheltered from the winds by Gunung Kajang.

Note: Whatever the conditions, please take care and don't go out during offshore winds unless you have instructed and paid a local boatman to follow you around in case you need a tow-back to the island. Nut even then you need to really know what you're doing, given the risks involved. Bottom line: we don't recommend sailing during off-shore winds. Better safe than sorry.

If you need information about ferry timetables and ticket booking, just go to By the way, windsurfing gear (board, mast, boom and sails) can be carried on the ferry, but there may be access-luggage charges. Typically, these are quite reasonable however.
