The three day long India Surf Festival will be held at the splendid Ramachandi Beach in Odisha this November from the 12th onwards. The eclectic India Surf Festival includes an exciting bevy of events and performances that are not restricted to surfing alone. Ramachandi Beach is renowned to have some of the best waves in India with regards to surfing, thus attracting some of the best surfers from all over. So, while you will have ample opportunities to catch some superb live surfing action, you can also be one of the lucky participants in on-site surf workshops with tips and tricks from expert professionals.
The India Surf Festival is known to celebrate an alternative style of travel with an emphasis being given to not having negative ecological impact on the surrounding environment. The Festival includes unique live music performances with genres ranging from digital music to organic music. Other exciting things to keep you enthralled include live painting, street art, amazing art installations and projections. Thrilling events like Stand up Paddle Championship and skateboarding competitions will be held with plans of a much improved half pipe ramp being installed right on the beach.
