Surf Beginner's Course
INR 20,500 | 4 DAYS
4 days of surfing training with gear, instruction, accommodation & airport transfers from Trivandrum airport.
Learn how to surf in one of India's favourite surf destinations.
Day 0- Reach Trivandrum, drive to Varkala & settle in. Explore the town and retire early to be ready for your first session tomorrow.
Day 1- Get picked up from your hotel early morning. Head to the beach for your first surf lesson. Get introduced to your surf board, learn pop up techniques on land and catch broken waves with the help of your instructor.
Day 2- Learn how to paddle and practise catching broken waves on your own.
Work on your balancing stance to ride longer waves.
Day 3- Understand the area to surf and learn how to catch green waves with the help of your instructor.
Day 4- Learn how to read a wave, board positioning and practise catching your own green wave. Based on your progress, learn how to do basic turns.
Pack bags and bid goodbye to Varkala. Drive to Trivandrum airport with some great memories and most important, a new hobby that will stay with you for life :)
Your surf session will be for 3 hours every morning, usually from 7 am-10 am. Exact timing will depend on local tide conditions and will be informed to you the previous day.
Post surfing, get back to the hotel, shower and spend the day at leisure. Explore the local shops, visit the nearby black beach, treat your body with a Kerala massage, sign up for a yoga class, try paragliding or simply hang around and soak in the chilled out vibe of Varkala. There are plenty of cafes serving great food and some with live music too :)
Frequently asked questions
How safe is surfing?
Surfing is safer than you think. However, it is an adventure sport and comes with its own risks. It is important to follow safety guidelines and listen to your instructor.
If you are a non-swimmer, then your instructor will ensure you are surfing only in chest deep water.
Will I be surfing alone?
Your instructor and other students will be learning with you in the water.
But you will have your own board and will be trained towards catching your own waves.
I have children. Can they surf?
Yes. The earlier one learns, the fast they pick up. Children above 6 years of age are eligible to learn. However, they must be accompanied by an adult.
What is the closest airport?
Varkala is 1.5 hours away by road from Trivandrum airport.
How fit do I have to be?
Participants who are generally healthy and without any serious medical condition can sign up for the course. Swimming is not a compulsory skill. Non-swimmers can learn surfing just as easily, and will be catching waves in chest deep water.
However, a surf session can be tiring, so be prepared for a good work out :)
