Review: Covelong Point Classic

By | September 7, 2016


This year’s Covelong Point Classic Surf, Music & Yoga Festival saw about 15,000 visitors and 150 participants competing for the top spot on the waves. The festival attracts people from all over the world, and the waves are ideal for beginners.

It was just this that the surfers came for, as well as the carnival-like atmosphere with music, yoga sessions, surf shops and lots to eat and drink. Founder Yotam Agam said, “The whole concept of surfing together with music and yoga is to bring the things we’re most passionate about together into one space – all to be able to empower the Kovalam community, who we’ve been working with for years now.”

This year featured India’s first ever slackline competition and catamaran races. Among the competitors, surf ambassador and legendary South African cricketer Jhonty Rhodes also attended the festival.

The event also featured some excellent performances by musicians such as Thaikuddam Bridge, Tanvi Shah, Mauritian blues trio Tritonik and much more.
