Merry Christmas 2 u 2!!! A taxi to Pondy (*mention Auroville Beach) it's going to cost u 1.5 - 2 G's Indian Rs, there are also buses leaving every 15 minutes to Pondy & a bus ticket is 100 - 150 rs, & about a place to stay...my surfer friend runs this nice beach cottage guest house with easy goin' shacks just next to our local surf spot so no worries...
Cheers man & c u soon,

I will abbreviate to make this short. This november I was in Kovalam in Kerela.. Body boarded on soft sandy beaches and rocky bottom beaches. Soft sandy beaches- 4-6 feet high slow moving swells with good shore breaks and very stong undertow. Knee deep water with undertow like that can knock you off your feet. Waves are average in depth and thickness but little to no tubes. Consistent sets make it easy to paddle out. Be mindful of rip tides in India. Rocky bottom beaches better for surfing. Bigger and more powerful breaks well off shore. You can see 8 footers at times. Good waves overall and not crowded at all. Locals are very friendly and curious. For more advanced surfers go during monsoon season if you like a serious challenge to your ego. Have fun.

i am not a boarder but i do surf waves in a kayak..so i am looking for some good surf....
i do like 'em big...say sri lanka was to small in the kayak but overall i am still a beginner.
our journey is going to take us from goa over to pondicherry (this was/is the only place i thought there'd be some waves) and then north along the beaches before we start moving into jharkhand/bihar/nepal...
we've got our own vehicle (truck) and maybe if you guys could let us know where we could find some local surf...breaking decently far out form the beach and a long whitephase (plenty to do in it with a kayak)....
