Winter Surf Camp
The beaches of Murud have a soft and sandy shoreline & the beach breaks are perfect for beginners. Surfing in Murud in its peak season from Oct to Dec gets you some amazing blue water waves too, breaking a little farther away from the shore.

- How can I or my kid surf if we dont even know how to swim?
Well sadly those who can’t swim won’t be able to attend the camp. Swimming is a prerequisite for surfing winter camp
- But in the sea waves, even somebody who knows swimming can drown. Then what?
Actually, the Indian Sea bed is quite shallow and waves aren’t that high and strong making them perfect for beginners to learn. Also, there are specialized Life jackets for surfing which can be arranged if required.
- Isnt the sea water harmful?
All the surf schools are located far off from the cities and usually have river mouths nearby bringing in fresh water. This mixture of Sea water has some of the following benefits:
Sea water cleans your skin
Sea water strengthens the immune system
Sea water reduces and eliminates anxiety
Sea water has citrization properties
Sea water improves breathing
Sea water cleans out the large intestine
