I visited bay of life around 5 years ago. From the main road, a jeep came to pick us up. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and made us feel comfortable with the equipment. Before entering the water, we were taught the basics at the beach, on the surfboard. Surfing lessons look easy but require a lot of strength. Took me half an hour to just stand up on the board in water. It was exhausting but loads of fun!! Everyone should try it…don’t get disappointed, keep at it till you figure it out. Take snacks and Gatorade/gluconD and be well rested and hydrated before your session.

Great place to learn to surf. Super friendly instructors, and an amazing beach as well. I signed up for a single class and was very impressed. Leo was the instructor and did a great job. They teach you technique and help you drill it until you get it right. I’m definitely going to be signing up for their beginner course.

Humble and kind, these surf coaches leverage the equipment available to empower you to get a ride on your first time out. I brought along two beginner dudes w me following a corporate meeting we had at an adjacent hotel. Both guys were up and rinsing within the first 30 minutes. It was two years since I’d been out post shoulder surgery and the waves were small enough to have a little fun. Truly appreciate surfing with local coaches/guides and grateful for the nose-less short board I was given to ride. A humbling yet exhilarating experience – who can truly say they’ve surfed the Bay of Bengal? Thanks to Bay of Life Surf School who made it all happen for us last minute!

What a fantastic experience! My first time surfing, and I had a jolly good time! Instructors Kavimani and Agilan were amazing and guided us through all the motions. From a warm-up workout to prevent muscle cramps to teaching us same basic surfing positions before we entered the water, Kavimani and Agilan took care of it all. Even after I started to surf, Kavi was acutely attentive of my every move, let me know what I was doing wrong, and before I knew it, I was surfing! 🌊 In fact, to get the most out of this experience, Kavi even took me in slightly deeper, made me ride bigger waves, and to my surprise, I was able to manage those as well. I did keep falling into the water, but it doesn’t matter as long as you get back up and try again! Very very fun and extremely safe! 100% worth your money! Do give it a shot! I’m definitely going to try this more often, and I think I’ve also discovered a new passion today! Thanks Bay of Life! Kavimani and Agilan, you guys were awesome! NOTE: Kavimani and Agilan are National Level Surfers!
