When Surfs, Yoga and Music Come Together at the Kovelong Festival!

When it comes to observing surfs by the coast, I had only seen some killer waves at Hawaii, Bali and Thailand over the course of my travels. I had recently known that Chennai was slowly developing into a coastline for Surf tourism. I had also known that there were surf schools in Aswem in Goa, Mulki in Karnataka and in Orissa too. I happened to capture a few frames at the Kovelong Surf Festival in 2016. Here's a glimpse of the event!

The Music

Saba Azad and Imaad Shah opened the evening, post sunset

Madboy Mink was their group's name. Quite a rage they were

Lighting effects and smokes could just create rockstars out of anyone on stage. PS: Arsh from Fuzzculture was really good, despite the lighting.

There was also a stream for Yoga classes, which I did not attend. You could check more on it here. I quite enjoyed my time there and I hope you too enjoyed seeing the pictures.
