Jack Hebner, can rightly be called the man behind the surfing movement in India. Surf and dive with his thoughts What brought you to India for surfing? originally, i came to india in the 1970s in search for spiritual knowledge. as i began travelling around i discovered that there are many great surf spots in india. on my next trip from the USa, i brought some surfing equipment and started surfing. for the first few years i was completely alone while surfing in india, now 35 years later there are hundreds of surfers and the growth potential seems unlimited.
