Since its inception in 2011, the Surfing Federation of India (SFI) has worked at the community level to promote the sport around the country. Formed by a group of surfers in Karnataka, it is led and run by people from within the surf community and is invested in the sport’s future.
Led by president Kishore Kumar and vice president Rammohan Paranjape, the SFI has held small events in places like Mahabalipuram and Pondicherry, before its first big event in 2013 – the Spice Coast Open.
This year, it hosted the first Indian Open of Surfing in Karnataka. The organisation has also organised workshops and classes to award international certificates for instruction, and looks forward to making India a qualification spot for World Surf League competitions.
