At TSSC it's all about good vibes, freedom in the waves, not taking things too seriously and learning to just go with the flow.

They try to combine humanitarian work with surfing and provide under-privileged youth with an opportunity to experience the joy of surfing.

'A Rising Tide' is a short documentary surf film, created by Indian surfer/filmmaker trio Tushar Pathiyan, Ishita Malaviya and Krish Makhija in association with Quiksilver India.

As the numbers of surfers in the country keep growing each day, these stories may never be lost and shall help create a deeper sense of surf community in India.
