Surfing is a term that our mobile and devices obsessed generation has grown thinking about the Internet. The closest emotion we ever feel towards that word- mostly translates to a high speed broadband connection

Surfing the Waves? Does that even count?

Traditionally India has not had surfing, as a sport that we Indians know. A couple of trips to Covelong near Chennai, and Aswem Beach in Goa revealed that India, within its limited waves has decent surfing, good enough to feel the rough seas, and ride on a bumpy road that keeps changing its counters every second.

Here are some images from the Covelong Surfing Festival
