New to TA Diver Education

Surfing is a relatively small, but fast growing sport in India. Generally 2-6ft consistent waves roll into this coast for most of the year offering larger, longer rides for those with a bit more ability, and smaller, easier waves for beginners. We have a range of surfboards to use during lessons to suit all shapes and sizes of students. To go for a surf on the east coast there is nowhere else to go.

Surfboards and Surfing Products

We supply awesome surfboards and surfing equipment all around India! See our Surfboards page for more information about Firewires, Webbers, NSP, OE Foamies and more. To support your surfing needs, we also supply equipment and accessories, mostly from Ocean & Earth. Check out our Surf Gear page for pics and prices of products.


And, of course, we all love bodyboarding! Bring your group to Chennai, Mahabalipuram or Pondicherry to try this fun sport in the ocean waves. Also, see our Bodyboard section for boards and extras available.

AIDA Free Diving Courses

Free Diving is the art of holding your breath and diving underwater.
There is currently no free diving organisation in mainland India and therefore no competitions as yet.

If you are interested in more than just snorkeling then it is highly recommended you take a Free Diving course. The course will teach you the basics and the concepts of breath-hold (apnea) diving including spearfishing and the necessary safety skills. required for you to participate in a safe and enjoyable manner.

We are the only Free Diving School in India and can qualify students to 1, 2 and 3 star AIDA level. At the completion of each course you will recieve an International AIDA certifcation. You can join our group and follow us on Facebook, India Freediving
