Name: Abhilash aka Abhi
Date of Birth: 12/03/1981, unfortunately Abhi passed away on the 27th of April 2010 at the age of 32.
Life Story: Abhi has had his fair deal of rock ‘n roll. Ending up with a broken heart after a difficult love story he started to live life on the edge. After working for several years as a shopkeeper in the warzone of Iraq, he came back to Kovalam where he ended up in the tourist industry and tasted all the joys of life. But after a while he realized that wasn’t the life he wanted to live and left to the famous Sivananda Ashram and later to the Ayurveda College in Coimbatore. He came back as an Ayurveda therapist and yoga teacher, but still with his both feet firmly on planet earth. His last ambition was to teach the children of SISP the benefits of yoga and to become a good surfer. He still is an example for all of us and he will stay with us forever...
Surf Experience & Motivation: Abhi could only taste the joys of surfing for less than a year, but he was for sure the most motivated of us all. There was nothing he liked more than being in the ocean with the Kovalam Surfclub.
