Hey guys, finished with line-up fight now?
Me & my girlfriend are traveling from Apr 17 till May 08 from Cochin amongst the whole coast to Chennai. How difficult is to bring a longboard (+shortboard) with me? Can we put it in a train, bus or on the roof of taxi's?
Any good tips for staying/surfing on this route?

I will be visiting india in dec. next year. are the swells good that time of year in Pondicherry. That auroville place sounds good, do you have the email of the local surfers there that rent their boards?
I have been to the andamans, never been able to get out far enough to surf and not a board in sight there (that was 1997) I am sure there is some incredible, untouched surf. Many of those areas are restricted to foreigners. (my wife is an indian passport holder but that doesn't help me.
any info would be appreciated.

Hello all, I'm in Mumbai right now, headed to goa kerala etc in the next few days. Would appreciate any information on places to go, how to get boards and anything else that would help. Would be great to be able to surf a little in India. Thanks for any advice.

I will be in India from July until mid of August. Where do you think is it possible to surf around this time of a year? Maybe in Kerala? Or do you think Goa is better? I am an intermediate surfer, 2-5 ft of swell would suit me very well.

Hi, I'm heading to India during July and August. I'm flying into Chenni and heading down the east coast toward Pondicherry, Auroville. Is this the best time to be looking for surf on this coast? If so where are some of the better spots? I am an intermediate surfer.

from your posts it seems you know alot about surfing in Pondicherry. I may staying in Injambakkam for a long period of time but not sure yet. I have been there many times but not been out in the surf. Do you know of any good spots close to Injambakkam?? I will be working alot and have a family, and not lots of time for travelling around but looking for some good spots close by. Mamalapuram may be OK.
let me know..thanks
