AQUANOX

2019

HIGH TIDES AND HAPPY VIBES

Aquanox 2019 will host people who are interested in sustainability and Water based activities that connect us to the ocean.

We have on-board - kite surfers, a fast growing Olympic sport which has solid potential in southern Gulf of Mannar coast, surfers, sailors, stand up paddlers, divers, and researchers and marine biologists who will help build a marine research facility in order to study the Gulf of Mannar region. This is a fast growing field for sports as well as academia, as oceans are the barometer for climate change, global warming, as well as an abundant provider of life itself.

Our goal is to create the circumstances required to bring all of us connected to the elements, in our own way, to get together and learn from each others experience.

The following activities will be conducted during the 3 days

1. Ocean Based - Kite surfing, Sailing, Wind Surfing, Diving, Stand-up paddling, kayaking

2. Art - art from waste and plastic, doradango, photography

3. Yoga and Fitness: Calisthenics, Sunrise Yoga, Animal Flow Fitness
