"Where you invest your love you invest in your life."

- Ocean Delight Surf School - Kovalam Beach, Tamil Nadu, India

My name is Appu and this is my story...

I’m a local of Kovalam Beach. I grew up in a village of fishermen and discovered pretty early the world of the ocean and my passion for surfing. My surfing career took me into several competions and luckily I won some of them. I’m very thankful for this because this gave me the possibility to get to know many people, gave me the opportunity to create experiences, improve my skills and helped me to develop an open and wide mindset.

I founded Ocean Delight Surf School with my friend and Business Partner Vicky in 2015 to give back something to our local community and people I love to have around me. It’s nice to see how children and friends have fun when surfing and create their own experiences.  Come and take a look at Ocean Delight Surf School and let me know whenever you want to take a surfing session with me. You can count me in.
