Yours to Enjoy, Yours to Protect
364 days of the year, Surfrider and our coastal defenders work tirelessly to protect our coasts.
For one day, International Surfing Day, June 19, we take a moment to reflect on the impact we’ve made, the campaigns we’ve won and the beaches we’ve protected.
Founded in 2005, International Surfing Day is an international celebration of the sport of surfing, while at the same time working to raise awareness and support for our world’s beach and coastal environments.
Now in its 12th year, ISD has grown into the largest global activation on the planet – with more than 200 Surfrider Foundation-led events taking place worldwide. Event locations include Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Canada, France, the UK, Argentina, Japan, and more than 90+ events here in the United States!
This International Surfing Day, salute your favorite beach. Surfrider chapters celebrate International Surfing Day in a number of ways — by hosting events that include cleanups or other environmental projects paddle outs, surf film screenings, concerts, yoga sessions and much more.
