Aquatic Safety

We love the ocean and water environment, it is something we are passionate about and would love to share this with you. While it is an amazingly fun environment, it can also be dangerous when not respected and understood. We offer Aquatic Safety Programs to help everyone understand and safely enjoy the water.

Opening Season


The ocean, the rivers and all of the water environments provide us with unlimited potential and fun for so many sports, so many activities and so many possible ways to enjoy and benefit from. However, it must always be remembered that the ocean and water is a hugely powerful uncontrollable and ever changing environment. It can easily and quickly go from a placid safe fun place to be to a dangerous threatening and hazardous place to be even close to. And it can change without warning. Aquatic safety is a vital component of safely enjoying aquatic sports.

There are many skills, much knowledge and a wealth of information and experience that we can learn and gain to assist us, as water users, to remain safe at all times, making safe decisions, doing safe activities and keeping our lives, the lives of family and friends and the lives of others who are water users as safe as possible and, in the case of an incident or accident, be able to assist people to get out of trouble and do it in a safe way.

Indica Surf School is the leading operation in India able to provide world standard Aquatic Safety Training. 

As we are passionate about aquatic sports, we are equally passionate about Aquatic Safety. To be play in the ocean or water, it is integral that people can also make safe decisions, keep themselves and others safe while in the water and it is a huge benefit if they can also be able to assist themselves or others in a safe, appropriate, efficient way if a dangerous or compromising situation arises.

Whether it is just providing basic training to aquatic sports enthusiasts, training people in formal aquatic safety qualifications or training professional fully qualified surf lifeguards, Indica Surf School is able to provide all levels of aquatic safety training.

We firmly believe offering this training, teaching these skills and building the level of aquatic safety, aquatic awareness and aquatic skills is a responsibility we have to ensure we are doing what we can to create and build the safest industry within India for everyone!

Whatever you goals, whatever your level of water skills, whatever your reasons for wanting to learn this, whatever your age, we have training that is suitable for you.

Surf Safety

This program revolves around aquatic safety and learning skills, information and methods to understand dangers and risks and then understanding ways to minimise these risks and dangers. This will be vital in helping participants to be safer in the water for their own safety but also to be able to keep others safe as well.

Safety is ALWAYS our priority and number one concern in all the lessons, whatever the type of sessions, whether surf lessons, other aquatic sports lessons or our Aquatic Safety sessions.

Our instructors use their skills, knowledge and experience to decide on where the best place to learn is, where the waves are best and importantly where the safest conditions are.

What's Included?

Everything that is required in these sessions will be provided equipment wise. The specific type of aquatic safety program, the skills and knowledge that will be taught and trained will be program specific. These specific details will be highlighted when these programs are scheduled.

These can be informal programs through to full pakka formal programs with international standard training and successful participants receiving internationally recognised lifesaving and lifeguarding qualifications.

What Will You Learn?

Each program is different and the learning outcomes will be dependent upon the specific program. Some programs will be informal basic programs while others will be comprehensive international qualification programs where successful participants will receive international qualifications and certifications.

Honestly…The Best Experience You’ll Have!
