Surf’s Up in Trivandrum – with Jonty Rhodes!

You might expect the world’s best fielder to over step on a cricket ground to be wearing whites or colors, on verdant grass, while showing his expertise in sports. Well no! Jonty Rhodes was clad in a black wet suit as he hot-dogged the surf at the beautiful Kovalam beach.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, not Malibu or Bondi but our good old Kovalam. The beach which started international tourism in Kerala, before anyone even heard of the backwaters, has kick-started a new sport – surfing – in our State. The Surfing Federation of India chose Kovalam for India’s first surfing and stand-up paddling competition.
