Paloleum beach, widely known as hippy beach in Goa. Located on the southern most, surrounded by hills and islands. The beach is just superb, right from the entry to the beach, the colourful seafacing wooden cabins, the smiling tourists, the wibe is good But the most important reason I will never forget this beach is because of my near death Sea Kayaking. It was a beautiful evening around 5:30 PM, sun was perfect to set. I was chilling with my 2 yr daughter and that is when this young guy around 18 - Ajay asked me if I want to do kayak to next island. Without any second thought I just said yes. My wife was enjoying her sunset martini at the beach shack. Ajay gave me life jacket, I kept my daughter with my wife. As we started rowing the fun started . With each wave I was filled with joy and adventure. ‘The current is high today sir’he said . The waves were stronger and high around 3-4 feet while going in. We faced around 5 -6 waves. After that it was calm and just beutiful, we were rowing ahead towards a private island. Ajay was talkative, he was giving me information about everything, the beach, north goa vs south goa, hotels , the mafia, drugs, russian prostitutes etc. After around 20 mins he turned the boat and I could see the most beautiful beach with the full moon. It was magical. The sun had set now , with the orange spread we decided to row back as it was getting darker. As we started rowing back the talkative Ajay was getting quiter and quiter. When I looked back he was looking back to see how big the waves are getting formed. He just pointed to the wave, it was 10 feet high. And that is the first time I got worried, We started rowing faster. The first wave was big and we managed. Ajay was looking back again, ‘Sir we might fall but dont worry I wont let anything happen to you’ he said. To tell the truth I can just barely swim and his words scared me more but I decied to hold myself. The next wave as I could see was around 12 feet high. For next 30 seconds I dont know what happend. We were thrown off the boat, I went down and came up. I could see my kayak around 30 feet ahead. I shouted for Ajay, bo see. I shouted again. he was around 10 feet away he started swimming towards me. Another big wave and we went away from each other. I was scary. Ajay came near and held my hand, he suggested to jump as the waves come and to keep ligher body, we were approaching towards the beach, meanwhile another boatmen friend of ajay came swimming he held the rows and me and Ajay swam towards the beach. All thanks to Ajay he held his nerve. An unforgettable adventure.
