a kingdom for a board

« on: November 16 2005 10:11:00 »

I am coming down to kerala in the beginning of January and desperately need a long-board. If anyone just wants to get rid of his, do not hesitate to contact me.

By the way, what do you guys think about doing some business. There are obviously so many people out there trying to arrange getting a board and surfing equipment. being the first (professional) mover in India could be quite rewarding. Why not combine the good with the useful?

Hi Steve

I dont know about Goa, but the coast of Gujarat offers fairly good conditions for surfing/windsurfing. I havent surfed myself, but  friend from Cyprus has been and was very excited by what we saw.

The place offers crystal clean warm water and empty golden beaches with an inbound wind. I would recommend Mahdavpoor's long sandy beach and some others near Harshad.

I'm going myself from begining of December. I want to start surfing and will probably take a board if I can find something in time and the wife lets me take up the luggage space.

When are you planning to go ?
