Come out and celebrate International Surfing Day 2010 on Saturday, June 19th!
It’s Surfing Magazine’s sixth annual tribute to the sport that’s become near-and-dear to our lives. Sponsored by our friends at Travel County, the Surfrider Chapter of Central Florida will be out at Dinky Dock Park in Winter Park hosting our second annual Paddle Board Clinic & Lakeside Beach Clean Up from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. There will be instructors and boards on hand for those eager to learn, and pizza along with refreshments will be provided by Mellow Mushroom and Vitamin Water. We’ll also be holding raffles and giveaways to help raise money for our chapter!
With the recent BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico, it is more important than ever to remember how fragile our oceans, beaches and marshes are. Surfrider of Central Florida has worked for years with sister chapters, state and national government and other environmental organizations to help pass legislation and protect Florida’s eco-system, so that generations beyond our own can enjoy all the beauty nature provides.
Bring your family, friends and lucky pair of baggies out to our 2nd Annual Paddle Board Clinic and Lakeside Beach Clean Up, and help spread our mission at The Surfrider Foundation!
