Lakshadweep Surf Tours
Here is a little information about our Lakshadweep Surf Tour Package.
Lakshadweep, the group of 36 islands is known for its exotic and sun-kissed beaches and lush green landscape. It is an archipelago consisting of 36 islands with an area of 32 sq km. It is a uni-district Union Territory and is comprised of 12 atolls, three reefs, five submerged banks, and ten inhabited islands.
It is an Indian navy controlled area, so the entry into this area is only if you have a confirmation of accommodation in the local resort near the surf breaks and then the resort will issue an entry permit to its guests to visit and surf.
Hence, all the government formalities and entry permit paper works are necessary and will be taken care by us, upon your confirmation to go on this surf tour. The surf season is in the month of May to mid-September, the waves will be anywhere from 1.2mts to 3.0mts in height. Both the surf spots are on a flat lava rock and coral shelf, thus creating these two world-class surf breaks, with offshore winds all day. In this way, Rastas & Satyas produces some world-class waves with near perfect conditions possibly all day long.
Rastas: Is a hollow right-hander that was named after the free surfer Dave Rastovich. Rasta immortalized this wave in the film “Castles in the sky”.
