Rarely feted as a premier surf destination, but with exposure to the Arabian Sea, the Indian Ocean and the Bay of Bengal it picks up some of the same swell as Indonesia. India's many beaches and points are clustered around the south of the country and can hold excellent surf on their day. The premier season is from May through September, the pre-monsoon and monsoon season. Sometimes it will be blown out and messy but sometimes fantastic. Pollution is an increasing issue around river mouth breaks as well as access and availability of accurate maps. Sea temperatures remain steady at around 25ÂºC or 77ÂºF.
Surf camps can offer a variety of types of accommodation such as apartments, hotels, rooms, camping or dormitories together with food, surf lessons and group activities. Often included are guided surf tours of the best local spots along with surf hire, videos, photography, professional coaching and even some night life.
