AIRASIA FEATURE DESTINATION : INDIA
India has unique long coastlines, which is relatively unexplored and is made up of perfect surf spots. India is known for waves all year round at an average size of three - five feet and increases in swell to eight – fifteen feet during May – September. Conditions vary between glassy offshore winds to a common afternoon onshore breeze so be sure to get your morning surf in!
Shivas is a favourite surf break in Murdeshwara which consists of both lefts and rights near a popular Hindu holy place. Ten Thousand Peaks is a unique spot also on the West Coast at Maravanthe, the name makes sense once you arrive and see the surf possibilities. Varkala (pictured) and Kovalam in Kerala are great not only for the surf but also for the hang out spots, lively restaurants and yoga ashrams. On the East Coast, Vizag has some point breaks and is also a great place for those just getting started.
On top of Surfing, India has an abundance in culture, delicious food and great if you’re on a budget. There are millions of possibilities for adventure, and if you’re down in Kerala don’t miss floating down the Keralan Backwaters in a houseboat – it’s incredible. AirAsia flies to Kochi, the perfect gateway to the Keralan Backwaters and some of the best surf breaks in India.
