Hosted by the Covelong Point Social Surf School and the TT Group in association with the Surfing Federation of India, the Covelong Point Surf Competition is an international-level surf contest that takes place annually amongst the azure waves of Kovalam.

The festival has a Yoga Shala, which is a beautiful space where breadth and movement intersperse in divine harmony. The Yoga Shala brings together an expertly curated line-up of renowned yoga and meditation teachers, sound therapists, alternative healers, musicians and martial artists for a string of sessions interactively designed to host participants on the path to holistic wellness.
The Covelong Surf Fest 2018 will have two music stages – the beach stage and Surf Turf stage. The beach stage is set right on the beach with the moon-dappled waters of the Bay of Bengal as your backdrop and reverberating beats, that are the perfect accompaniment to the sound of the crashing waves. It showcases a carefully curated line-up of world musicians and dancers – genre no bar. The Surf Turf stage is set in the heart of a bustling carnival atmosphere, nestled amidst an explosive blend of colour, creativity and revelry by the beach. Designed as a space for every artist – different genres, styles, musical leanings – this experimental stage showcases fresh sounds from a vibrant selection of different artists.
You can also discover street pieces, mixed media artwork and photographic images that give out socio-political commentary, humour, imaginative concepts and relevant narratives by artists. The festival has some great food options – from gourmet grills to Italian delicacies to local delights. Take your pick!
