Why India? Yes, a relative few people surf here, a lot of the coast has been explored, and it isn't totally new as a surf destination. However, few if any other places in the warm and safe category that also get surf are untapped like India. You can still surf where no one has before...or at least feel like you're the first. Vast stretches of the coast haven't been looked at by a surfer's eye. Even more have been explored by a few but not given the time it takes to get a place figured out. Good waves happen here, and getting alone for a surf is easy.

New Spot

OK, I fell on that one.

Ed Templeton (see put me on to this Jetty not too far from Trivandrum.  Our sand moves around here a lot from season to season and evidently year to year.  A number of the go-to breaks aren't working at the moment, but this place sure is.  It's a great left.  To access it from my side of the river, I have to paddle across.  Otherwise, about 45 min. gets added to the trip if I go around.  I ride on the back of my friend's motercycle most of the times I surf.  An hour and a half of that with a board in drizzling rain after a 3 hour surf in Indian traffic will about do you in.
