I came down from Chennai to Mahabs to take some surf lessons. Anna & Mukesh are absolutely lovely guys. I can't imagine Mahabs without their nice surf shop. The lessons were super nice and all the other instructors are fun too. I had the most beautiful time with you guys. I will definitely come back.

Wanted to try my hand at surfing to see if I would like it or not. I had an amazing time on the water. Mumu is a really good teacher, very patient and encouraging. I'm definitely going back in the future!

Mumu is knowledgeable, experienced & passionate about surfing and a great guy. His humble surf shop business on the beach not only offers beginner lessons, but also lessons for those who want to improve their surfing style and group lessons. Mumu also rents surf boards, long boards & body boards by the hour @Rs250. What really struck me most about... More

Mukesh (Mumu) was very friendly and attended to all our queries before we could reach. His lessons were informative and made surfing fun. He was turning his lessons adapting our way of surfing. It was a fun experience and would love to visit again.

Finally Surfing in Chennai ! Mumu Surf school is a great place to try your board ;) This place is located right near the beach front. He is now shifting to a new place much more prominent with a little more space to park maybe couple of cars. Mukesh is patient in teaching the nuances and with some good waves... More
