“amazing experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

Surfing was one of the finest experiences i had. It is exhilarating especially if you manage to stand on the board on your very first day. Mumu is a great coach and has good equipment. But, be sure to go in the morning to avoid the heavy duty sun or else you would end up looking like tandoori chicken. Mumu charges 1000 for private lessons and 750 in group for 90 min. A must go if you plan to visit mahabalipuram

What a wonderful experience! Mumu Mukesh Surf Guru is the master blaster of Surfing India. We learnt to surf due to his patience and grace. Thanks to him and the whole Mahabs surf crew! We will keep learning and come back soon!

“Amazing Guy, Great waves”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Me and my wife decided to try out hand at surfing during the long weekend of 13th April. I had initially surfed (or rather tried to) in Hawai and we were initially reluctant about the quality of training and the surfboards. The moment we met Mukesh it all vanished.

While the location of his isn't exactly prime real estate, his shop is surprisingly well equipped with really good quality boards. After dealing with one of his students (a white guy!!), he turned to us and immediately put us at ease. His knowledge of surfing is pretty good and he explained to us about the different surf boards and why he was giving us a long soft board to learn on.

The beach it self was lined with fishing boats and the sun was bearing down on us. But the sight of surfers in the sea, a mix of white guys and enthusiastic local kids drove us across the sands into th sea. The beach doesnot ease into the sea but there is a drop, which means the sea does not retreat or advance during the tides. Only the level changes.

The waves were seemingly small swells till we got close to the point where the waves used to break. While we could stand on our feet, the waves did go up to 1-1.5 meters at times!

Mukesh was patient throughout the hour and helped us gain confidence and ensured we got multiple rides on the waves! It was time well spent and not expensive by any stretch of imagination!

I will be going back with friends sooner rather than later!
