Founded in 2007 by Tushar Pathiyan & Ishita Malaviya (India’s First Female surfer), this is India's only surf school to be supported by Quiksilver. This premier club serves the western coast Karnataka, India where it's all about Surfing, Safety and Fun. Their main aim is to promote the sport and culture in the country by getting more and more people in the water - This way individuals can get a first- hand experience of freedom in the waves and get a feel of what it's like to completely let go.
They strictly do not give lessons to Non Swimmers and each surf session lasts for a 2 hour period or whenever one is too tired to go on - whichever comes first. People of all ages, from all backgrounds and of different skill levels are welcomed with open arms. All instructors are certified in First Aid & CPR by the American Red Cross Society.
The Shaka Surf Club strives to combine humanitarian work with surfing and provides under privileged youth the opportunity to train with them. Whether you'd like to understand ocean currents, prevent a drowning emergency, surf next to dolphins or just be a beach bum - Do visit the crew at Shaka, and you'll be in good hands.
