SUMMER SURF SESSIONS!

It’s the middle of May, and we’re so stoked that the pre-monsoon swells have finally arrived! Usually when the waves get this good, no one ever feels like taking any pictures, because everyone would rather be in the water, Surfing! But, this time we were lucky enought to have our good friends Abhirup, Lijo and Ashwin come down to the beach and get some EPIC shots of us surfing!! Check em out!! 😀

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!

SURFER GIRL TEJASWINI

Summer’s here and the schools are closed for summer vacation. There’s nothing better than having the Kodi Bengre kids surf with us almost everyday now. It’s been seven months since they started surfing and they’ve already improved so much! For starters, no one uses the life jacket anymore!

I still remember the day we first took 11 year old surfer girl Tejaswini surfing. She couldn’t swim and was terrified of being in the water. She’s come such a long way since then. It felt SO GOOD today to watch her grab a board and paddle into the waves on her own, without even looking back to check if we were watching. She caught some epic waves and looked so cool doing it! I can’t tell you how happy it made us 😀

She’s such a fighter too. No matter how badly she wipes out, she hops back on her board and paddles in for another wave. I love that about her! Did you know she also ranked first in her class this semester? SO PROUD of her! 😀
