Boardbags and Happiness!

Michael decided to fund raise and gather donations from his surf community, friends and family back in Santa Cruz, California, for The Shaka Surf Club. He received a lot of love and support from everyone and was able to fill two large coffin board bags with 8 boards and bring them past customs , security all by himself! So we wanted to showcase his story and his time hanging with us at The Shaka Surf Club.
If you want to donate any surf/skate related equipment but don’t think you can do it like Michael did then you can do it through our partner Beyond The Surface International. Email us :, . Also see


Super Cape- Ablibites Workshop!

Beyond the Surface International and Super Cape-abilities came down to The Shaka Surf Club , to show us that everyone can be a super hero!!

Super Cape-abilities headquarters believes that every single person on this planet has a super power – that force that transcends time and stands each individual in their element. But to become a super hero, we first need to understand ourselves and our own potential.



We are beyond stoked to share with you ‘A Rising Tide- The India Surf Story’ a short documentary surf film we created with Mosambi Juice Productions in association with Quiksilver India!

‘A Rising Tide’ is a short documentary surf film, created by Indian surfer/filmmaker trio Tushar Pathiyan, Ishita Malaviya and Krish Makhija in association with Quiksilver India.

In a country with a population of 1.2 billion and just over a hundred surfers, the film sets out to explore the journey of some of India’s pioneer surfers, their humble surf beginnings and their deep connection with the ocean.

Through interviews with local watermen we celebrate the joy of riding waves and the aloha spirit of the Indian surf tribe. As the numbers of surfers in the country keep growing each day, we hope that these stories may never be lost and shall help create a deeper sense of surf community in India.

The first documentary surf film to come out of India, ‘A Rising Tide’ features pioneer surfers Mukesh Panjanathan, Jack ‘Swami’ Hebner, Velu Murugan, Satyaraj Das, Tushar Pathiyan, Ishita Malaviya, Kishore Kumar, Kiran Kumar, Spandan Banerjee, Rahul Malaney, Shamanth Kumar, Murthy Megavan, Melville Anthony Smythe, Kalyan Raithi, Hari Varma, D. Anudeep and Nissam Yoshikawa.

We hope you enjoy watching this film! These stories deserve to be shared, so please spread the love!  :D





It has been so amazing working with our good friend Emi Koch and her NGO Beyond the Surface International! (<– follow her here) She fit right into our little Shaka Family and we’ve been busy with some fun and exciting projects with kids from our surf club!

This one is an upcycling initiative! Over a course of two weeks we conducted regular beach clean-ups, and collected hundreds of plastic bottles, rubber slippers and heaps of trash. These materials were then converted into bricks, to construct a beautiful bench for our good friend Arun’s sea-food restaurant right on the beach. The project was a huge success and we’re so proud of our young groms!

Yeww check it out!😀

Yesterday was such an exciting day for us! We got to be featured on MTV!! Yew!! We had the crew from Drive With MTV #NanoSouth come down to Kodi Bengre and catch some waves with us! So much fun!😀

Drive With MTV is India’s first social media reality show featuring the journey of 4 teams driving across the country in Tata Nano cars, and telling the story of their adventures and sharing their experiences along the way!

On day 19 of their journey, the Nano South team decided to spend a day at the beach and learn how to surf! We were a bit worried at first because it had been raining like crazy for the past few days and weren’t sure if we would be able to take them surfing. But luckily the Surf Gods were on our side and we had sunshine all day long! We had such a great time surfing with the Nano South team! The conditions were a bit tough for beginners but these guys did great!

We’re wishing them the best of luck and hoping they win this!! Check out the video!😀
