Spot easily Accessible . Plenty of accommodation available bang on the beach. Empty water with the occasional fishing net.
Located on one of the most popular beaches in North Kerala. 5Km long beach has many beach breaks suitable for beginners and intermediate surfers. Mornings are glassy evening can be a bit messy due to wind. Monsoon Season (june - aug) packs some powerful waves. My have lots of people on the beach but hardly anyone swimming or surfing. Very good for body boarding also. Lots of foreigners around training in Ayurveda and Kalari payattu ( indian martial arts) living in the vicinity. Beach is relatively safe and people are generally friendly
Brought up around the area but only recently started surfing here.
