Hey. What is the surf like on the West Coast (Arabian Sea) of India, I've looked on a report for Baga beach in Goa (only one I can find with swell charts), and for the last week its been consistently 12ft+ with virtually no wind so I'm gonna guesse there's a decent wave at some point in the day, but was just wondering whether this tends to carry on through July? (thats when Ill be there).

Also, is there much risk of shark/jellyfish/bad rips?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Simon.

Surfing is not much popular in india as the beaches are not suited for that, except Baga in Goa which has strong swell as u mentioned and there is no danger of shark there...

I have been to Goa many times but i didnt see anyone surfing during the time i was there..... maybe u can try it out
