THE SHAKA SURF CLUB ON MTV !!! :D

 

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! 😀

SURF RESCUE TRAINING WITH PROJECT SWIM INTERNATIONAL

The Shaka Surf Club is extremely happy to announce that we are now partnering with an organisation called Project Swim International, in an effort to educate local communities in water safety, and prevent the number of drowning deaths in India.

We recently had a group of PSI volunteers – American Red Cross Lifeguards from Tuscon, Arizona – who visited us in Manipal, and trained us in Surf Rescue, First Aid and CPR. During their visit, we also conducted a Water Safety Education Program in a local college to a group of nearly 40 students, which was a big success!

We even got the opportunity to record a show about water safety on Manipal Radio 90.4 FM- a community radio station that broadcasts programs to smaller towns within 30 kms distance from Manipal!

Big Thanks to the Project Swim International team – Ben Schaub, Nicole Manuel, Jenna Lee Curtis and Kelsey Didier – for all your help! We are excited about taking your work forward in India 😀

Check out more pictures of their visit here.

OUR ROOTS ARE IN THE OCEAN!

Seems like we’re in the business of shocking the villagers of Kodi Bengre. First they knew us as the fools who went swimming in the ocean and surfed big waves. Then, we were the fools who converted a 30 year old abandoned bar, into a surf shack. Now, we’re responsible for creating a new landmark in the village!

Ever since we set up the shaka shack, we had been dreaming of painting a surf mural on one if its walls. Call it coincidence or destiny, we recently had the good fortune of meeting an amazingly talented graffiti artist from Serbia, named Artez, who just so happened to be doing an internship in Manipal!

We were stoked to have found an artist and he was even more stoked to have found an empty wall! Over the course of three days, we watched his ideas come to life as he painted from sunrise to sunset (occasionally taking a break to go surf of course!) and realized the truth in his painting : Our roots are in the ocean! 😀

Thank you Artez for making our wall look so awesome! It looks better than we could have ever imagined!

For those of you want to check out more of Artez’ graffiti, click here!
