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 to nurture the awakening of a new surfing culture against the backdrop of an ancient, simple culture. Lush cinematography and a rich world fusion soundtrack transports the viewer to the seaside fishing village of Covelong Point. Following Murthy’s journey over 6 years, EarthSync - producer of the award winning film ‘Laya Project - has documented and been an integral part of the sea change Murthy and his passion for surfing has brought to the village.
