Tioman Surfing Event is a yearly event that runs during the mid monsoon season. The event runs over three to four days and is a popular event for families, travelers and surfers alike. It is not only a surfing competition but instead an Island program with surfing being the main focus, whilst, promoting and bringing awareness to some of the main local issues i.e. Turtle Conservation and Beach Clean-up.
The program will include presentations from local organizations including; Tioman Developement Authority, Tioman Marine Parks, Tourism Malaysia and a local dive and sport operator.
At the same time we will also promote cultural activities for non surfers such as music session, beach games and etc as well as having the chance to enjoy tasty local food. Other community events will include friendly sport games, family games, and surfing introductions whilst promoting other sport activities such as climbing.
Last year the event gathered a total of 40 male participants but this year however we also want to create more categories for female and junior surfers as well as opening up the competition for international surfers in turn increasing the number of contestants. Details and date for Tioman Festival 2015 will be coming soon…
