    "Waterwalk is perfect for first timers to learn how to surf! Cedric and Tapashi, two beautiful souls and also amazing teachers really helped us learn how to get up and ride the surf in no time. I would really recommend anyone who is willing and able to hop over at Mandrem Beach for this amazing experience."

    "I was there about 3 weeks ago with some friends. I took a surfing course with Tapashi and a standup paddling course with Cedric. They made it very easy for me. The weather was perfect! I saw dolphins quite close as well. It was such a wonderful experience in a very quiet beach. I was so surprised by the amount of tourists on the beach. I almost didn't want to reveal this hidden gem."

    "We have always worked out in confined rooms. Have you ever wondered doing it on a surf board in sea water? Sounds amazing, right? Fitness freak or not, its meant for all. In your next visit to Goa, Waterwalk India's SUP should be in your to-do list."

  • Review by a traveler from Bangalore, India

    "Wonderful experience! I went for my first ever stand-up paddle (SUP) trip, and it has been one of the most memorable experiences of my life. As we were going into the sea, for the first time ever I could feel the waves forming underneath my board. As we went further into the sea, I could see the waves from the other side, which is definitely not an every-time-visit-to-beach-view. It was an incredible experience.I have no words to describe the amazing experience of seeing dolphins from so near in the middle of the sea.Don't worry if you don't know how to swim. I don't know how to swim at all. I can go into the sea only to the distance till my ankles are covered. But with Waterwalk India, I went into the inside the sea, from where all I could see was water. The experience was truly, as the name suggests "walking on water."Definitely a must try for all."

For everyone who wants to learn in an ideal beautiful environment in Goa, be told about the waves and share delightful meals as well as interesting discussions, this is the place to be!
