  The 3rd edition of India Surfing Festival (ISF) kick started on February 14, 2014 with Mr. Arabinda Padhi, Secretary, Dept of Tourism, Government of Odisha inaugurating fun cum adventure event in the sandy beaches of Ramachandi near Korank in Odisha.   The Ramchandi beach is agog with excitement as scores of surfers from across the globe have thronged here to ride the waves during the three-day India Surf Festival.   Participants and lovers of the sports from across the globe have arrived in to enjoy in the Odisha coast.   Like previous two initial years, the organizers expect a huge footfall of tourists and adventure lovers.   While seasoned sea-riders would exhibit their riding skills on surfboards on the adulating waves, rookie surfers will get a chance to learn the nuances of paddling and striking a balance on surfboards from the veterans.   The festival will not only promote adventure tourism, but also help to boost surfing sport, which is not very popular in Odisha.   Lifeguards, rescue boats and medical camps have been pressed into service to avoid any untoward incident.   The visitors would also get a slice of Odisha's art, dance and music on the beach.
