I had amazing four days at the Ashram Surf Retreat. I was traveling solo in India for work, and I took some vacation. I had never surfed before (other than a one hour lesson a few years ago), so I took lessons every morning (about three hours or 8-10 or 12). By the third day, I could catch some of my own waves and stand up consistently. The coaching is really good, encouraging, and effective. And the beach is incredible. Totally clear, no crowds, and warm water. After surfing, there is brunch and then relaxing at the Ashram. The guys living there are so fun to talk to and hang out with. They have a really good attitude and love of life. In the afternoon we would go out kayaking or stand up paddle boarding on the river. I loved the combination of water activities, great food, and perfect company with other guests and Ashram members. Could not recommend this unique adventure more!
Absolutely loved the Ashram. Amazing vibes! Sitting right on the backwaters, the ambience is perfectly mellow with great access to calm waters for paddle-boarding or kayaking, and good surf on the nearby beaches. The food is great and the accommodations are simple, clean and comfortable. I traveled there solo (very easily and safely as a single girl), and you'll meet lots of other travelers from all over the world in this family-like atmosphere. Moreover, the staff is really what makes this place. They are kind, generous, humble, extremely interesting and funny and I can now call them good friends. Very much looking forward to returning to this tranquil and fun spot over and over again!
