+ ADD YOUR PHOTO OF SURFING AT Varkala

Description of Varkala, India

I was there for 2 weeks during October and the waves never got below 5 feet. At the south end of the beach there is a semi-point set up, with a STRONG North rip. The wave is short but very occasionally it barrels. When the swell is over 6 feet, some longer rides are possibe. There are no boards for hire and the locals use the beach as a toilet, watch for land mines!
