The sub-continent of India has 7,000 kilometers of coastline. The greater portion of that is still unexplored in terms of locating surf spots. But with that much exposure to the Arabian Sea, the Indian Ocean and the Bay of Bengal and with nothing off the southern tip of India for thousands, and thousands of kilometers except Antarctica - with that much ocean out there, you know there are going to be some great waves when the conditions are favorable. You're right, there are!

There are waves in India all year round averaging 3 to 5 feet. SURF SPOTS in India <info from surfingindia.net

The season for big waves [8 feet plus] is May through September. This is the pre-monsoon and monsoon season. At this time the surf will range from 8 to 15 feet and bigger , often blown out and messy but sometimes the conditions are fantastic- super glassy and offshore winds, at which time you can expect some world class waves.

some trivia you might find interesting; the word 'SURF' came from India.

If there is any one word that surfers use the most it is probably SURF. After all, where would surfing and surfers be without surf? Surf is everything. But did you ever stop to wonder where the word surf came from? I did and what I found out from an Etymology Dictionary was that the word surf came into use in 1685. The word 'surf' was derived from the Indian word 'sufe' meaning the coastline. This word was picked up by Portuguese sailer's in the 1600's and 'sufe' soon became 'surf'. <info from surfing-india.com
