• Surf's Up! @ Camp Namaloha

Combine the rush of surfing together with the relaxing pace of coastal life, and you've got Surf's Up! Camp Namaloha, the White Collar Hippie and Shaka Surf Club campsite, is tucked between an empty beach and calm backwaters in the sleepy little village of Kodi Bengre along Karnataka’s stunning coastline. We'll be in the water by day and around the campfire at night, under starry skies.

Meet your host

Ever since they were kids, Tushar and Ishita had always wanted to learn how to surf! Like almost everyone else, they assumed that there were no waves in India and would probably have to go to California to start surfing! Little did they know that their decision to move from Bombay to Manipal to pursue higher studies would change their lives forever!

It was in 2007, they got bitten by the surf bug and all they wanted was to share their stoke of surfing with everyone! What started out as a couple of college kids teaching their friends how to surf eventually evolved into one of the first surf schools in India - The Shaka Surf Club.

Being the water lovers that they are, Tushar and Ishita are also Open-water Scuba Divers. Tushar and Ishita are both parts of the first surf team of India. In the future, they hope to help surfing grow in India and help put surfing in India on the Global map.

Trip Highlights

What makes this trip different!
  • Camping under the stars

Camp Namaloha is tucked between an empty beach and its calm backwaters, and is the ideal campsite for water babies. We promote an open culture for everyone, so you'll also get to hang with the local families, learn their stories, and eat meals made in their homes! 

In the mornings, Tushar and Ishita from Shaka Surf Club will get you to study the waves while they familiarize you with the surfer drill. They were a part of the first surf team of India and have been surfing & instructing for a decade! They run the Club like they're teaching friends, so you're guaranteed to have an awesome time around them. 

Nothing beats the high of getting on the board and into the sea for the first time. Once you are familar with the basics, we'll commune with the waters and before you know it, you’ll be riding your first wave (if only for a few seconds!)

Apart from surfing lessons, you can try your hand (and legs!) at other sports - like skateboarding and longboarding at the skating pit in our campsite.

Nothing like catching the early morning with yoga, before heading to the beach. Namaloha is the perfect setting for getting in some asanas before jumping into the sea!

It’s the locals of this tiny Udupi village that make Camp Namaloha as special as it is. We make it a point to interact with the villagers who share our space. Through our stay, they will bring delicious, authentic local meals for us from their own homes!

After days filled with sun, sand and surfing, we unwind by the bonfire at night to share the stories of our day’s adventures. Then we turn in inside our cozy tents to sleep under a starlit sky.
