Kokopelli, an age old American myth - usually depicted as a hump backed musician, was believed to have been venerated by Native American cultures in the Southwestern Region of the United States. He represents the spirit of music and it is said that on his travels, every time he came across towns where people were anxious, troubled or in distress - He would play his flute and bring about joy and happiness instantaneously. In a sense - he would chase away the winter and bring about Spring. This is what Sandeep Samuel, Founder, intends to achieve at his Cocopelli Surf School - Help the world forget about their problems through Surfing, which he believes is therapeutic. In his own words ''When the next wave is close, you don't have time to think about your money, your job, your problems - nothing! It's just you, the board, the wave and nothing more. In that very moment, all negative emotions disappear, your mind is free and you experience a pure state of bliss'' Sandeep was brought up in Chennai and started his sports career as a Professional snooker player before finding himself on a surfboard. He set up Cocopelli Surf School 7 years ago, the first of its kind in Gokarna. A representative of the Indian Team, Sandeep has coached over 400 students and has caught waves all over the Indian coast, Sri Lanka, Andamans as well as Indonesia.
