India Surf Festival – February 7th – 9th

Beginning on February 7th and running through the 9th, the India Surf Festival is a meditative and exciting event in Orissa at the Rangers Adventure Foundation on Puri-Konark Marine Drive in Puri, India. Rooted in an unbridled enthusiasm for surfing and SUP paddling, the India Surf Festival is an attempt to take the beauty and inspiration of riding waves and translate it into a context of meditation, yoga techniques, and the magic and mysticism of the gorgeous beaches of India. Surfers and SUP paddlers from around the world will gather to embrace the sun’s healing rays and their own well being through a contemplative, unifying and satisfying experience that will connect participants with their own talents and surfing and sup surfing skills while also providing a uniquely spiritual and meditative connection with the earth and water around us. This time of year the water and weather are of a moderate to warm temperature.

Art, Music, Film, Dance. Here are some highlights from the festival …
