This Saturday, June 20, marks the 11th annual International Surfing Day. Every year, cities around the world partake in celebrations of this beloved, surfing holiday. People from across the globe, in more than 30 countries host barbeques, competitions, film screenings and other surf related activities.
The special thing behind International Surfing Day is not only found in celebrating the lifestyle and sport of surfing but the celebration of our oceans. International Surfing Day highlights ways to give back to our oceans, waves and beaches by organizing habitat restoration, beach and ocean cleanups and other activities that promote coastal preservation.
There are events taking place all over the world this weekend. So, no matter where you may be, whether south Florida, California, Puerto Rico or Spain, there is an event near you. Taking place in south Florida there are events from Jupiter to Miami. For more information about International Surfing Day 2015 or to make a donation, please visit the Surfrider Foundation.
