Akkarai Beach in Tamil Nadu is an exposed beach break that has quite reliable surf. Autumn and winter are the best times of year for waves. Offshore winds are from the west northwest. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the east southeast. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Even when the surf is up, crowds are unknown. Be wary of rips - they make surfing here dangerous.
