I heard there is a new surf school in Sabah- Surf to the Max - T .M.H SURF SCHOOL , ITS GOT a level 1 surf coach and they provide all equipment needed to do the lesson. They are based in Kudat and have an office in Tambunan also doing tours of the croker ranges. the ph is 0138759992 for the surf school.
YES they do have a new surf school now , its started last year in the early stages and this coming season its going to be fully operational. The season there is in June- July Aug -and again in Nov to Feb but waves come right through this period and you can have flat spells so they have SUP,s to take you out and snorkel etc They take care to have it run like surf schools in AUSTRALIA . about 6 years ago
