Tiruchendur Surf Guide

Tiruchendur in Tamil Nadu is an exposed beach and reef break that has quite reliable surf. Autumn and winter are the favoured times of year for waves. Offshore winds blow from the northwest. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the south. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights and in addition there are both left and right reef breaks. Good surf at all stages of the tide. An uncrowded break, even when it is working. Watch out for dangerous rips.
