We are happy to announce that Jonty Rhodes, perhaps one of the best known cricketers to have ever played for South Africa, has agreed to be the Surfing Ambassador for the Surfing Federation of India.
For those of you who only know Jony Rhodes from his successful career on the cricket ground, you will be happy to know that Jonty is also an avid surfer and promoter of the sport. Not only that, but when Jonty surfs he often surfs in India, between stints when he is coaching the Mumbai Indians in India's IPL cricket league.
We welcome Jonty Rhodes to the Surfing Federation of India and we look forward to many moments together promoting the sport of surfing in India and internationally.
Universally known as a master of mental conditioning on the cricket field, Paddy Upton is also a stoked surfer and supporter of the sport of surfing. From 2008 thru 2011 when India won the World Cup, Paddy was the Mental Conditioning Coach for the Indian National Cricket Team. During this time Paddy also took time out to surf some great waves in India.
Befriending many up and coming surfers in India, Paddy was eager to lend his advice and professional experience to guide the Surfing Federation of India. We are now proud to have Paddy Upton as an official Ambassador of Surfing in India.
Presently, Paddy is also the Mental Conditioning Coach for the South African Cricket Team. Paddy is also currently appointed as the High-Performance Coach for the Pune Warriors India in the Indian Premier League. Many thanks to Paddy Upton.
