The 7th annual Monsoon Mayhem International Surf Challenge returns to Desaru Beach in Malaysia from 4-6 January 2013 as a 2-star Asian Surfing Championship event, which will draw both professional and amateur surfers from all over South East Asia including Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Taiwan to compete for the $14,000 MYR ($4,600 USD) in total prize money and ASC championship points, and just to have heaps of fun at this unique event.

Located just east of Johor Baru in Malaysia and the closest surfing beach to Singapore, Desaru Beach is a white sand strip of beachbreak that can offer up peaceful glassy conditions as well as thumping closeouts during the monsoon season, so what will be on offer each year is anybody’s guess. Mother Nature is a fickle beast and each year does her best to make sure that the event lives up to its “Mayhem” moniker.

There will be surfing competitions in four categories, Men’s Open, Women’s Open Masters (35 years of age and older), and Bodyboard), as well the Slide Jam Longboarding Competition, which saw tremendous success last year and is expected to draw skaters from all over Malaysia and Singapore to compete for the $1,000 RM first place prize.
