Mahab - I was there a week ago. Funny when I was at the beach. I thought the beach was very clean..Tide was high but I could tell that place is totally surfable when tide drops a bit. Nice offshore wind was blowing..There was no surfer in the water of course.. I thought I could be the first one to surf there but glad to hear that many of you already explored that spot. Surfers are true pioneers.

- I went there twice last year and it was sloppy and unconsistent + the beach is filthy and the nuclear plant is really close.

Info on Indi - check out surfingindia.net that'll answer all of your questions... also the main spots are Mahas, Kollam, and the Andamans... hopefully someday Nicobar will be open to surfers too...
