anuj anuj Three Days Surfing Activity in Udupi
Happened to visit this Surf club last month. Stayed 2 days and surf 3 sessions. Location of the campsite is mind blowing. Like u sleep on an narrow island. Water both sides of it camp. It was fun learning basics of surfing with amazingly fun coach duo. Camping and surfing equipment are nearly maintained. Thou food were very basic, but lived up to expectations of what they claim " local Maland Cuisine". It was my first riding on swell. And after all failure efforts and fatigue, the first ride over wave felt bliss.
