Very friendly guy and was very forthcoming. We kept our bags with him the 2 times we did surfing and kayaking. Highly recommend this place to all to try safe water sports. Single kayaking is the best.

Must try for water sport lovers. One of the few places that has insured all of its equipment. The owner is super friendly and gives a quick lesson before encouraging us to go into the sea. Pocket-friendly and great for first-timers.

Go here for water sport rentals. They do kayaking, paddle boarding etc and offer good advice on the best time to do these activities and safety. They are attentive to their customers and keep an eye open while you are out on the water.

You can find kayaks almost every 20 meters in the beach, but I think Samson is the one having Stand Up paddle surt, which is perfect for the quiet flat water in Palolem
