This week I speak to Tanvi Jagadish, the original Indian Surfer Girl, who is changing attitudes and expectations about girls spending time in the water across India, and in the process providing inspiration across the world
Multiple national champion and Ted speaker Tanvi, started with a love of the water which was stoked by her Grandfather and the Surfing Swami (US surfer, Jack Hebner) and became the first SUP athlete to represent India on the international stage.
This is the guest who April Zilg calls 'a real inspiration'.
