A Surf Adventure in India


Berta Tilmantaitė

Probably every surfer has at one time or another thought about how their sport first started out, how it looked at the beginning, and how the first surfers reacted when they caught their first big wave. What the feeling was like when you arrived at a remote deserted beach, when you found that perfect break and had it all to yourself. How the locals reacted at the divine madness that was being practiced out there amongst the swell.

Here, in Kerala, you can experience not only the rich and diverse culture that India is famous for, but also be witness to the birth and development of a new surfing destination and culture. There’s a real thrill in knowing that no else has done what you are doing in this place before. That’s why India is so special, because here that is still possible.
