Pristine beaches, a shimmering blue sea, and some of the best surf in the country – the fifth annual Covelong Point Surf, Music & Yoga Festival is all that and much more! The festival takes place this year on August 25th – 27th 2017 at the Covelong Point Social Surf School in Kovalam , India’s first surfing village and a hub of surf culture in South India.
