About us

Surfing is our passion, it is a connection with nature, a way of life and simply fun 😁

Mukesh was raised in a fishing community in the beautiful Mahabalipuram (home of the famous shore temple).

After working as a diving instructor for several years, Mukesh founded Mumu Surf School as the first surf shop near Chennai with intimate knowledge of the sea and the waves.

He is a qualified ISA Instructor with a Surf Rescue license, a PADI Divemaster and Rescue Scuba Diver.

Now, Mukesh and his wife Anna run the Surf School right at the Main Beach of Mahabalipuram. The attached “Sandy Bottom Café” offers healthy, nutritious, fresh food and drinks for the tired surfers after a session in the waves.

Infos on the Beach Cleanup Program

As the ones who love and adore and need the ocean for our passion. We fight for a clean environment and waste-free society.
To teach the old and new generation to treat the environment with respect is our duty. So we are always spreading the message of a waste-free lifestyle.

For example in our Shop and Cafe we use:

  • Recycled wooden materials for our barstools, tables and furniture that would have been thrown away at other places.
  • Metal Straws in our drinks that we can clean and re-use every time
