Surfing in India, believe it or not, IS a thing. And Mark and I spent 2 months there to really explore what it’s all about, where the surf is and who makes the best smoothies on the west coast. The good news is, we managed to answer most of those… the even better news is that there’s a bunch of beautiful photographs to prove it.
Usually, I’m way too busy grabbing a surfboard, slapping the sunscreen and zinc on and jumping into the salt-water to even consider the logistics of taking my DSLR or GoPro down to the beach or on to one of our road trips. But how could I not give you an insight into our surf-filled mornings and share all the adventure stoke with you guys?! Skyscanner at the ready, these photos will make you want to go surfing in India RN.
The bug, the tuk, the boards and those dreamy palm fringed shores. Kappil Beach, Kerala
Norway’s finest surfer babe Anniken, waxing up her Indi board under the fresh morning sun <3
Anna banana, the babe that is. <3
My surfing smurf and sun bleached blonde bombshell, Mark D. <3
NSP, wax, sandy toes. Surf ON!
The board is out of focus on purpose… promise…
Seriously though. This is Coconut Joe, a 6’4″ NSP. He is the board Mark likes to use.
We surf in leggings and tee-shirts here out of respect for the locals, because the beaches we surf on are fringed by Muslim villages and temples.
See ya Kappil Beach! Until next time : )
All the fun, locals and palms all in one place. <3
