What Is International Surfing Day?

International Surfing Day

Held annually on the third Saturday of June, International Surfing Day is an unofficial, environmentally conscious surf holiday that celebrates surfing, the surfing lifestyle, and the sustainability of ocean resources.

Established in 2005 by Surfing Magazine and Surfrider Foundation, International Surfing Day is a worldwide celebration of the sport of surfing. The day is observed with surf contests, barbecues, film screenings, and, most-importantly, beach cleanups.
