The Mantra Rescue Team was established in the aftermath of a devastating flood incident in Mangalore in 2018. The concept was proposed to the Panchayat by the Deputy Commissioner of Mangalore, who recognized the Mantra Surf Club’s extensive experience in ocean and water safety.
With over a decade of involvement in ocean water sports, we possess the essential equipment, expertise, and knowledge needed to effectively manage unforeseen floods. It is our moral obligation to conduct search and rescue operations in situations where severe flooding endangers lives.
Floodwaters are highly unpredictable and present numerous hazards to communities living near the ocean and rivers. Our objective is to provide assistance to these communities during such calamities and to encourage swimming, a critical skill, within the local community through the Surfing Swami Foundation, particularly emphasizing its importance among fishermen.
If you wish to contribute to our cause, please consider donating to the Surfing Swami Foundation, or feel free to reach out to us for more information.
Here are a couple of ways you can make a difference:
Contribute financially to the foundation to help us acquire essential equipment such as lifejackets, inflatable boats, long-range flashlights, waterproof walkie-talkies, and more.
If you are in close proximity to our operations, you are welcome to volunteer and assist us in our rescue efforts.
Your support and involvement can play a vital role in saving lives and ensuring the safety of communities during times of crisis.
