The Shaka Surf Club is all about freedom in the waves, good vibes, not taking things too seriously and learning to just go with the flow. The word ‘Shaka’ literally means "hang loose" or "take it easy."


Founded in 2007, by two stoked humans Tushar Pathiyan and Ishita Malaviya, we are one of the first surf schools in India.

We started the The Shaka Surf Club to share our stoke of surfing, with all the good folk who cross our wave-filled path. We are passionate about promoting the sport and culture of surfing in India. 


At The Shaka Surf Club, we provide beginner level surf lessons, surfboard rentals and accommodation at our Surf Camp Namaloha.

We welcome people of all ages, hailing from all places to come surf with us in India! 

The Shaka Surf Club is proud to be a part of Kodi Bengre Village, located near the temple town of Udupi, Karnataka.


We're part of a community here in Kodi Bengre and  our way of giving back to our community is SURFING! We encourage all local kids to get in the water, learn to swim, surf and learn about the ocean and all it has to offer!


We encourage all our students visting us to interact and exchange views and ideas with the kids from the surf club as it is an awesome learning experience for both our students and the Shaka Surf Club Kids


To take this further The Shaka Surf Club in association with Australian Life Saving Society and Austswim started the nippers program which aims to teach children at the local government school to become junior lifeguards.

"A beach just like a postcard picture, water warmer than the air, and 1st first time I could call my teachers buddies, too ;) Thank u guys for being this awesome! Really enjoyed the surf. braving the waves, fallin off the board a dozen times and in the end, it's all worth it. Never thought I'd be much of a waterlikin kinda guy but The Shaka Surf Club proved me wrong. Can't wait for the next surf session cuz today was legen - wait for it - dary! keep it goin." - Moritz


"We had an amazing few days with Tushar and Ishita. It was one of the highlights of our whole trip to India. They didn't just give us excellent coaching in one of the most beautiful spots of beach we've ever seen, but looked after us so well in the evenings too, taking us to the best places to eat and drink in Manipal. Their whole set-up was really relaxed and friendly, sensational value and we got to see dolphins, twice!. We order you to go surfing with them, you'll be glad you did!" - Gavin and Joy
