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.

There are a number of good breaks in the area. Swell size and direction, season, whether or not a river mouth has been open, and the simple randomness of how the sand has filled in lately all factor into each day's decision of where to surf.

Let us help you be on it. We can do this by driving you ourselves, by pairing you with a local that knows where to go, and/or by placing you in hotels near the best waves for your time of stay. The goal is for you to catch the best waves and to sample the variety of surf here during your stay.

We've surveyed the local hotels/resorts and are prepared to match you with the best place to stay in your budget near good surf. We have shopped and bargained ahead for you, have minimized your need for transportation, and will assist you in navigating local prices for food and such (rip-off prevention). Considering that and the time saved doing it all yourself, I'm confident that you will find us to be a good deal.

April, which is typically the best month for surf also happens to be the "off season," so there are some great deals to be had. You can eat and sleep comfortably for around $15 / day or live like a king for $130 per couple.

We also offer a few excursions into some nearby mountain areas where you sample some more of India's beauty. You can do a challenging trek along a river, eat with some locals in their home, and visit local attractions where you can see lions and ride elephants.
