Bodyboarding in Kovalam

« on: January 30 2010 21:01:00 »

Hi, I'm heading to Kovalam in late March.

Interested in bodyboarding some breaks, are there boards/fins you can hire or any locals know of where i can obtain some?

Hopefully there will be some swell around this time, has anyone been here around March?

Hey mate,

As a fellow Adrian and bodyboarder from South Africa, I'd be really interested to know what you find out there. Please let the GlobalSurfers community know if you find any gems. By the looks of things on google maps, there are a few coves below Kovalam beach that have potential.

Safe travels

Hi AJ, I am heading over there next week and am taking my own boadyboard. Did you get any info? What are the waves like?

I surfed two out of 4 good beached within walking distance. Had to explain to a local what I wanted, and we went off and came back with a surfboard that I hired from under someones house. Never saw anyone surfing or bodyboarding or renting this equipment, but this was back in '96 so things may have changed. I was there in mid year and plenty of waves, too big a couple of days.
