Spice Coast Open
If you watched Baywatch and wanted to surf like Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff, then head to Kovalam beach. Starting May 3, Surfing Federation of India would conduct the surfing and stand-up paddle (SUP) competition on the awesome beach.
Right from the Old Spice commercial to beach guards at Bondi Beach, surfers have always enthralled with their skills and dexterity in sailing the waves. This is your chance to witness boarders hitting the waves in India.
Kovalam with its golden sands and “surfable” waters would be the venue for the three-day event. If you need more reasons to visit, then you could get to see Jonty Rhodes, the ace South African cricketer who is the ambassador of the event. Competitions would also be held in SUP, in which participants stand on a surf board and paddle.
Although registrations have ended, you could still get your share of thrill watching the surfers ride the waves.
