International Surfing Day 2013

ISD 2013International Surfing Day was founded so that surfers and surf enthusiasts from all over the globe have an opportunity to come together in celebration of the great sport of surfing. Now in its ninth year, ISD has grown to over 200 separate events in over 25 different countries. From paddle-outs to beach clean-ups, surf movie nights to mangrove restorations, surfers across the world will be coming together on June 20th to both celebrate the sport of surfing, and to give something back to the oceans, waves and beaches that give us all so much. So wherever you are on this big blue ball, we invite you to celebrate International Surfing Day.
