The Surfing Federation of India (SFI) on Thursday announced that the premier surfing competition of India, which is recognised by the International Surfing Association, will be hosted by the Mantra Surf Club, Mangalore. The three-day surfing competition will see participation from all the top surfers of India as per their rankings and will be a part of the Karnataka Surfing Festival, which is being organised by Karnataka Tourism. Competitions will be held in three categories — men, women, and groms (U-16).

  “We are excited to be associating with SFI for Indian Open Surfing as promoting the lesser-explored coasts in the state are of prime importance from the point of view of a thriving tourism economy. In such beautiful and serene parts of the state, a sport like Surfing can really help to attract tourists from all over the country and also from abroad,” said Dr Rajendra KV, IAS, Deputy Commissioner and Chairman District Tourism Development Committee, Mangalore, Dakshina Kannada.
  Ram Mohan Paranjpe, vice-president of SFI and host Mantra, said, “We are elated to be back after a long gap with the third edition of IOS and are looking forward to seeing some action on the west coast of India during pre-monsoon swell”

Mangalore has been the hub for surfers in India on the west coast and since 2016 the Indian open Surfing has been hosting its inception. The Surfing Federation of India post the pandemic has worked towards promoting the sport and bringing in many small-scale tournaments to life to keep the athletes’ competition ready.
