Paul nice one! we are stuck in mumbai getting replacement docs as we had all ours stolen :-( we'll be in agonda in the next week or so. look forward to catching some waves with you, although the wave forecasts look flat flat flat...agonda is such a mellow place anyway it is a great spot for waiting for waves. will check out the links for dubai surfing, sounds cool (but you are unlikely to get a great wave shape in agonda, its a bit of a mushy, 'fun' wave)
anyone interested in SURFBOARD HIRE, i may hire out my dear old mini mal (trying to recupe some of the cash that has been swiped from me....ggrrr...). will be reasonable...about 100 rs/hour (2 us$ or 1 quid 20 ish). i may take payment in beer also....drop me a line if anyone interested....

good news re: surfin in goa. being dragged away from oz and bali towards goa 2 meet brother and will arrive in april.
your description of the waves at palolem? sounds good for me and my malibu. do you have any idea if the monsoon affects the swell this time of year and also if it's gonna cost an arm and a leg transporting my board from bali via kuala lumpur?

just leaving bali myself to catch up with the brother in goa beginning of april. had no idea there was surf in goa although have witnessed waves and very strong current in varkala, kerala.
my flight will take me denpasar to KL to mumbai to goa. are you saying the cost of transporting my malibu would be too much? haven't looked ino it yet

wow - if i was a rockefella type business man i would be starting a surf school / board shop in goa!!
i will only be in goa from tomorrow until 19 march - so will miss some of you who replied to my mail....that is unless you are surfing on the east coast of england in april may time.
i am really happy to give beginner lessons too - no problem there. goa is a great place to learn to surf.
karen - on the board transportation front, i think it depends on the airline. emirates are excellent, and allow you to take boards up to 9 feet free of charge. so check with your airline - shouldn't be too bad - fingers crossed.
take it easy

Have you ever surfed up near Alibag? What is the swell direction/size like during monsoon? I am an artist who works in Bombay and just settled between Mandwa and Alibag for a year or so. I was thinking that I would have to return to Sri Lanka to get some surf... looks like I might not - any info about surfing north of Goa would be very helpful. btw is the swell in Goa mostly wind or ground swell and what direction? Any thoughts or websites with good marine info for the area would be a goldmine to me.

dude, what about the wind - be in goa from 18 to 21st march and take my kite surfing stuff. but hans need some wind to fly. thx for ur help
RE: surfing goa« Reply #7 on: March 06 2005 16:03:00 »
Thanks for the info - getting a detailed marine forcast out here is nearly impossible. I won't have my board until I head back to the states for a couple months in May. I saw 3ft wind swell that looked pretty clean a couple days ago - can't wait to get wet so I'm shaping a new board here - If the quality of the Indian materials pan out then I'll make a few more when I have the free time next fall (If anyone is interested).

hans - you should get some fun on a kite surf thingy. there is a steady northerly onshore that gets up every day from about 11am. its not too strong - the stormsurf.com site says 4 knots, this will increase the closer to monsoon we get. there was a guy kitesurfing at palolem a few days ago he seemed to be havin fun.
alex - i noticed you were getting some half decent swell near mumbai. send it down here cos there haven't been any decent waves here for 2 weeks!!! arrrgggghhh!! i'm so bored!!!!! there may be guys here who would buy a board from you i'll ask around.
