Advice needed for Goa trip!

Guys,
I'm planning a 3 day Goa trip with my family from 31st Aug-2nd Sept. Wanted your inputs whether this is a good time to visit Goa. My parents have already booked the ITC Guest House there but we can cancel it if this season is not a good time to visit
To be specific, my queries are
1. Will water sports be still on in this season ? I just don't want to return without having done water sports because of the rising seas ? Doing water sports is something which I have been looking forward to for quite sometime.
2. How much is the amount of rain towards the end of Aug in Goa and will I be able to enjoy the beaches or will the clouds be looming over the sky throughout the day.
3. Is it "safe" to go to Goa with your parents ? :-D

I have more questions but will ask them once based on your responses to the questions above. Looking forward to quick replies as I'm already late for booking my flight tickets and have to do it tomorrow .

Ok, I love Goa during the monsoon season.
But with regards to your questions,
1. I doubt there'll be any water sports at this time. The sea is fairly dangerous during this season.
2. It's not always raining during the monsoons and you get dry and hot spells during that time so you'll probably get days to enjoy the beach.
3. I'm not sure what you mean by this. Depends on how bad you want to be! I really do not see a problem!

Let me know if there are any other questions.

Thanks,"Goa" . Haha. That's what you used to be addressed by others in first year.
As you said that the water sports is most probably not going be there at this time, so it is worth going here. I mean, what else there would be there to do in Goa ?
There are a lot of places to see in Goa. Going more inland (towards the East), there's more greenery, etc.- so that makes for an relaxing vaccation.
Depends on you!

Mannu,
About the safety thing- When I had gone with my family- I did not touch alcohol or go for a night out at the beach.
But, early one morning when my sister and dad went for a walk, they did encounter a topless foreigner!

But, otherwise, it is fun, with the family too! Explore and have fun!
@Sakshi
:-D . Am not sure whether I'd be going or not. Maybe will postpone the trip by 1 month . By then, I think the water sports will again be on. Though it's gonna be greenery there as Dion said, but I have been going on a vacation/holiday almost every month and most of them have been one of those hill station kind of places,so looking for something more adventurous now.

This a distress call to all TWM folks. This has been the longest duration of inactivity for TWM. So is it that we are all too busy or have all of us hit the writer's block. Let's break the spell of inactivity....HOW?? WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?? I have an incomplete draft, shall I post that? May be I will do a recap of the past few days..No mood to write paragraphs.. Connect the dots yourself.. * Kaminey - Movie was good, the ending could have been better..The bong mafia coming with a long gun to the fight scene was really comic..Fahid Kapoor ki acting mast thi..waifey aap log ye movie dekhey kya?? * Books - Finally I read the book Love Story by Erich Segal..Hmmm the story is good but the effect of the classic book has not yet got into me..Meanwhile I am also reading 'The Great Indian Novel' by Shashi Tharoor..I will surely recommend this book..Tharoor has splendidly blended the tales from Mahabharata into the modern Indian history.. *Movies - I watched 'Littl
