Quest Asia accommodation is located on an island. Tamil Nadu is scenic, the waters are blue, the horses are wild, the peacocks are plenty, and the people are curious. Surrounded by sand, the beach and the ocean are just a few feet away.

In an attempt to blend in with the surroundings, Quest Asia has a couple of simple beach huts and tented accommodation in Kathadi South. There are common washrooms with solar-powered showers. The two beach huts, perfectly designed for tropical conditions, are furnished with twin beds and the capacity to add an extra bed, if required.

All rooms are equipped with fresh linen, fans, and charging points. There are also four tent pods, designed for budget travelers, that can comfortably accommodate two people. There are two other tent pods, designed for larger groups who would like to stay together, that can comfortably accommodate four to six people.

Quest Asia will introduce you to various aspects of windsurfing, and teach you how to hone various skills on land before performing on water, all the while learning the safety rules. You will learn how to keep safe by learning how to assess the wind and physical location, use the safety systems, manage proper equipment, set-up, and control the windsurf equipment.

  • Jehan Driver

    Working with real travellers helped Jehan hone his skills to build something as beautiful as Quest Asia. He has been accumulating many instructor certifications in various adventure sports. After studying management at Queenstown Resort College, New Zealand, he decided to setup a kiteboarding school on Rameshwaram island. He worked hard to raise awareness about the sport and the possibilities of creating athletes who could be competition-ready in a few years. Jehan started creating trips that have all the elements of hard adventure, but at an easy pace, that are extreme, but also comfortable.

Quest Asia windsurf school is located in the state of Tamil Nadu, on the south east coast of India. The channel between India and Sri Lanka is dotted with islands and surf spots.

Cycling

One of the best ways to explore India is by bicycle. There are scenic coastlines, mighty mountains, mouth water food, culture rich deserts, mystical forests, and architectural wonders. The thoroughly researched routes, with all the required elements, make a perfect cycling holiday in India.

Kayaking tours

Nica Surfing operates a variety of kayaking trips on a daily basis in the pristine blue waters of the Gulf of Mannar and Palk bay, which is easily accessed from the base camp. The most important factor for a safe and enjoyable kayak trip is the quality of your guide and the interpretation of the biodiversity in the Gulf of Mannar. Kayaking guides at Nica Surfing have earned various international certificates and have proven their worth by winning national competitions as well.

Kitesurfing tours

A kitesurfing safari in India can be the most authentic experience of your life. India is one of the best kept secrets in the kitesurfing world, having thousands of kilometers of unexplored lagoons, wave spots, and a crazy wind season which extends to almost 10 months every year!

SUP tours

Stand up paddling is an easier way to surf waves or just paddle the waters. The sport is fun when your balance is challenged by ripples or small waves in the water when you get started. In time, it is all part of the fun. Some skill learning followed by some practice, and you are good to explore, maybe even paddle around the islands. On a good sunny day, the hues of blue are enough to get you smiling and feeling satisfied, if you’re lucky you might even spot some marine life as a bonus to the exploration.

Other activities

In your free time you can enjoy kayaking, rafting, surfing, wakeboard, hot air ballooning, rickshaw safari, jeep safari, cycling, walking tours, trekking, snorkeling, and workshops.
