Today was a blistering HOT day in the sun for hours cleaning up the seemingly endless trash of every description, mostly plastic, old shoes and bottles, some of which washes in from the Arabian Sea and the rest of it washing down stream in the river past many villages and into the sea, which then spits it onto the beach. The extent of the trash boggles the mind, stretching for several kilometers in both directions. Cleaning up this mess, which we attempt several times a year, is factually beyond the ability of our small crew from SSF and Mantra Surf Club. We need your help!
Today the directors of Surfing Swami Foundation (SSF) and Mantra Surf Club, Kiran Kumar (right) and Shamanth Kumar (left) have presented Tanvi Jagadish (centre) with a coco fiber racing Stand Up Paddle Board by NSP, gifted by Pro Stand Up Paddler, April Zilg of USA and a High Performance 7S Surfing SUP gifted by Kishor Shetty, a Mumbai industrialist. Tanvi’s dedication to Stand Up Paddle and her love of the ocean has made her a force within the sport here in India. Her eyes are now set on international competitions. Congratulations Tanvi! Your future is bright.
