The brand follows “Roark” and his meandering travels as an elusive, idealized figure, weaving his story into a timeless line of lifestyle products, surf apparel, and trinkets.
Roark came to Southern India at the fag end of last summer to explore surf, skate and culture with the legendary Jamie Thomas, Nate Zoller, Brandy Grams and the lensman Dylan Gordon and other revivalists.

Our guide & surf photographer Rammohan met the legendary explorer & surf photographer Ted Grambeau at a cafe on the Gold Coast and had a brief chat about the unexplored islands and surf breaks of the Arabian Sea.

India Surf Tour handled all the logistics, production and permits of the entire exploration at far away islands and never surfed atolls of Arabian Sea.
