Surfing in KT

That isn't Australia or Bali.

That is a picture taken at the Batu Burok Beach in Kuala Terengganu.

The Terengganu government is eager to promote the state. We have the Monsoon Cup there and now there's the inaugural Terengganu Quiksilver Best Event Surf Contest scheduled Dec 2-4.

Local surfer Bryan Ng admitted the waves in KT ain't as big as the waves in Hawaii or Bali. But smaller waves tests a surfer's skills explained Bryan in today's Mailsport.

There is a large surfing community in the country as evident on online forums, facebook and blogs.

Contrary to popular believe, the sport is inexpensive. All you need is a surf board (an average board is between RM1,500 to RM2,000) and plenty of waves.

With the right support, Malaysia could be the next surfing spot for avid surfers around the globe.

p/s: If surfing ain't your thing, try your hand at designing a shirt. A trip to Australia is up for grabs. Visit Quiksilver Malaysia for more information.
