International Surfing Day, Celebrating 10 Years of Stoke!

On Friday June 20, beachgoers and surf enthusiasts from around the world will come together to celebrate the Surfrider Foundation’s 10-Year Anniversary of International Surfing Day (#ISD14). The nonprofit organization, which is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s oceans, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network, invites the public to save the date and take the day off work to join the fun!

Participation in International Surfing Day is free. Many of Surfrider’s chapters host a beach cleanup or an environmental project followed by a group paddle out, surf contest, yoga session, surf film or concert. With more than 140 events taking place around the world, register for one near you today.

Not near a beach or a Chapter on June 20? There are a variety of ways to celebrate and give back to our beaches and ocean, such as picking up trash, hosting an event and becoming a Surfrider Foundation member. The Foundation is also hosting an awesome Instagram contest titled, “My Special Place.” Three lucky Instagramers will win a prize pack valued at $1,500.

Founded in 2005 by Surfrider Foundation and Surfing Magazine, International Surfing Day started with nearly 16 domestic and one international event, and has grown exponentially to 200-plus events in more than 30 countries. Since its inception, approximately 70 tons of trash has been removed from our coastal environments.

This International Surfing Day, Celebrating 10 Years of Stoke, is presented by the Surfrider Foundation, Volkswagen and ZeeBerry.com.
