Arriving from Singapore, follow Kota Tinggi, then Mersing, then Air Papan, then Tanjung Resang. As you reach Tanjung Resang, the sea will come into view.
The surf is not very powerful and has a tendency to dump. It's very consistent from November till March, however. Still, I wouldn't advise anyone to fly in just for the surf here. But if you're going to be around, then Tanjung Resang is definitely surfable.
Tanjung Resang is what's locally known as an "ulu", spot, meaning it's a bit remote, not frequented by the masses, it's not a tourism brochure darling. The reason is that it's a little tucked away in between a jungle and the sea, and also because there are not as many resorts as Kuantan, or Desaru.
Still, there's plenty of sea sports fun to be had ever since "Malaysia Sea Sports" set up shop there. They can provide you with everything, from rental boards to rooms and from food to tips on how to maximize your stay there. Check them out on www.malaysiaseasports.com
