This is the story of Covelong Point, the first surfing village in India, and the story of one man, Murthy, a fisherman.
With nothing more than a few old boards, a deep passion for surfing and teaching others to surf, Murthy strives alone to nurture the awakening of a new surfing culture against the backdrop of an ancient, simple culture.
Covelong Point documents the obstacles before Murthy in forming a surf school, from the start of the project, through to the realisation of a dream.
The vision of the film is to raise awareness with surfers, surfing organisations and surfboard manufacturers to be a part of the movement to make Murthy's dream for Covelong Point come true.
The Covelong Point Project is in support of Murthy's dream of setting up a Surf School in Covelong.
This translates simply to 30 boards, a group of committed people and a few famous surfers who will come to Covelong to:
- Connect with the locals - Conduct workshops of surf teaching, share techniques and knowledge - Inspire budding surfers to learn, and to later teach - Help build a thatch hut on the beach for the school - Inaugurate it with a small village surf competition
In a journey of hope and friendship, Covelong Point is a story of sea and surf, with the colourful and incredible background of South East India.
