Previously monsoon season meant braving big, choppy, overly powerful beach break. It was fun but required a lot of effort for little return. It was more for the victory at sea experience. There were no real clean options - no waves wrapping around anything out of the wind. The expansion of a local jetty this year has changed that. Expect head high or more everyday through August and probably all of September. Nobody is out this time of year...ever.
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.
