India surf spots in "Thicker Than Water"

Does anyone know where the surfing in India in Thicker than Water takes place?

I am not certain what you mean by " thicker than water " but i am presuming you mean thick and heavy waves? If so it all depends on the season. During monsoon season the waves will be thicker and taller. Thicker waves are more dangerous than tall thin waves. A clear example of very thick and heavy waves is at a break called Teahupoo. Probably the baddest and most intense waves on the planet.

google teahupoo waves and click on the first web page. Than on the page scroll down to halfway and click on picture of Laird Hamilton. That is teahupoo and that particular wave and and ride by Hamilton is regarded as the thickest and most dangerous wave ever ridden, ever!!  The wave is about 20-25 feet high. The real clincher is the lip of the wave which is about 10 -12 feet thick!! No other wave compares both in danger and pure thickness.

I think they are surf spots in the movie are in the Andaman islands (not sure if correct spelling ?) I also heard they got hit pretty hard by the tsunami so not sure how the breaks are working now? should be ok though.
I would love to go surfing there must be one of the best sections in the dvd
