There are some pretty heavy preconceptions about the subcontinent not having great surf, was that your experience?
We didn't get any waves that whole trip, the waves I caught were sets that I waited 10 mins for. But that doesn't even matter to me, the experience I got travelling throughout India was all I needed in the end. Truly amazing!
So it was a mission to find the waves?
It was a mission, we were taking 13 hours train rides to find some sort of swell. You don't even realise how far you've travelled and then you're taking so much in you forget about the mission you're on.
How were you received by the local surfing community? Did you have some local knowledge to dial you in?
I had no clue about were to go in India. The local surfers were so kind and inviting to us -- they drove us around, feed us and housed us! Without them we couldn't have completed this so thank you guys!
