Cocopelli Surf School

Come and learn to surf at Cocopelli Surf School, the first and only surf school in Gokarna. Travel India and spend a relaxing and exciting surf vacation at one of the most beautiful surf spots in India.

The long beach of Gokarna Main Beach provides perfect waves for beginners. Its clean blue waters brings it to its best. Light current and pleasant streaming makes sure you don't run out of breath just from paddling. If you don't want to get stuck in the rainy season visit us between October and May, which is suitably the best time for beginners to surf. The pre-monsoon and the post-monsoon (before October and after May) can be a challenge for the pro surfers.


You will learn to surf in very small groups or one on one. We provide daily surfing lessons. Sandeep, our experienced surf teacher, will give you some instructions about technics and safety before you start paddling into the sea and catch your first wave.
