Surf Hire in Goa« on: March 01 2010 09:03:00 »
Im are heading out to Goa at the beginning of may and have heard bits and pieces that there are some quite nice baby waves to be found around. Only thing is that everywhere iv looked everyone says theres nowhere to hire boards from!?
Does anyone have any local knowledge an know where i could hire/buy/borrow 1 or 2?

Ok, after LOADS of emails and phone calls to various people iv finally found some useful info for anybody having similar issues...
There are some guys who set up "shop" on the beaches by the 5* resorts around Sinquerim. These guys hire out various water-sports equipment to patrons of the hotels and other visitors to the beach - however I couldn't get much info about what kinda boards they have and prices so I wouldn't expect much more than a 7ft foam board at resort rates...
Alternatively if you contact the guys at http://www.surfingindia.net/ they can put you in-touch with a local guy who Iv been told can set you up (I'm still waiting for him to get back to me with board types and prices...)
Hope this is helpful to anyone in the same situation as me!

That info is very helpful. We are coming from the US and won't be bringing boards to India as we'll be in the mountains, but wanted to get to the coast to surf for a few days, and would need to rent boards (real ones). Any luck w/ contacting that guy?

I rented a surfboard at Colva before. It took a lot of pictures and asking questions at the local hotels. But yeah someone had a 6'1 fiberglass thruster. I suggets you take some pictures of boards with you if you don't speak Hindi. You will get waves, I did, and it gets bigger as you go further south. Good luck.

There are actually about four or five surf schools now in Noth Goa where you can rent a board or take lessons. They all vary in price point and can be found at different beaches. One by the name of Surf Wala is in Arambol at a place called the Surf Club. There are two in Ashwem one is called Vaayu and the other is called Banana Surf School. The forth one I know about is in Vagator I believe. Most of them will close before May though...I would look them up online and contact them to see who will still be open at that time. Hope that helps.
