She spoke about the increasing competition among people, which she feels came too early. Whenever she participated anywhere, she would find it difficult to make new friends, as everyone only saw her as competition. She maintained that surfing should remain something positive which “overcomes class and gender”. The ocean is for everyone, be it the small village girl or kids from different religions who have never talked to each other. “It’s about getting more people to reconnect with nature and naturally develop an appreciation for it,” Malaviya added. (Image source: Ishita Malaviya Instagram – @surfishita) Devika Pawar Ishita Malaviya has slowly worked towards revolutionizing Indian surfing by establishing a name for herself as the only Indian professional female surfer.
