    Calling Yogis, Surfers And Merry Makers: The Covelong Point Surf, Music And Yoga Festival Is Back

    Aakanksha posted on 14 August

    What Is It?

    An annual festival held just outside of Chennai, the Covelong Point Surf, Music And Yoga Festival is just that — a whole lot of like-minded people enjoying some sun, surf, music and yoga. So if you’re a surfer, then you’ve got to sign up for their various competitions across categories. We, of course, will watch from the shores with the promise of competing next year. For music lovers, you can count on catching Skrat, Divine, The Raghu Dixit Project, Bement from Isreal, Mali, in addition to a cool performance by the Covelong Point Surf Boys Dance Troupe and that’s not even scratching the surface of the line-up! Then there’s the yoga aspect which is ideal to get beginners, pros and yogis all together to inspire each other. So, plan that mini getaway, and make sure you somehow wind your way to Covelong.

    Who Is It For?

    Music lovers, beach bums, surfers, lovers, yogis, and everyone who just wants to be part of a really wonderful community of people who respect and love yoga, music, the sea and sand. And since it’s over the weekend, including a Friday, it’s ideal to take a break from work, home or just the mundane city, for a breath of fresh sea air. No?

    Why Should I Go For It?

    The real question is why shouldn’t you go for it. Fusing fun, great music, local talent, healthy living, peaceful lifestyle, sustainability and the arts all in one cheerful festival, the Covelong Point Surf, Yoga and Music Festival is your chance to simply let go. And when the backdrop is a coastal fishing village, it becomes all the more alluring. Throw in surfing lessons, volleyball tournaments, slacklining and water gun beach fights {oooh yeah!}, and it’s a party you don’t want to miss.

    In addition to your own crew, it’s also your chance to widen the squad as there will be loads of interesting people attending too. From athletes, industrialists and yoga enthusiasts to media folks, artistes and expats, you’ll be rubbing shoulders with loads of people who’ll no doubt have intriguing stories to tell. Oh, and did we mention that there’s going to be a flea market too? Yes yes. There’ll be kitschy merch {from apparel and accessories to trinkets and beauty stalls}, food and drink to load up on as well.

    So, see you there?
