INTERNATIONAL SURFING DAY FACTS!
EVENT HISTORY: International Surfing Day sprung from the idea that it would be great to have an annual day to celebrate surfing, while giving thanks and appreciation to our oceans, waves and beaches. From there, the first International Surfing Day began with one international and 16 domestic events. It has grown to more than 90 domestic events and 71 International spanning more than 30 countries across the globe. The day is not only filled with fun surf sessions and paddle-outs, but encourages people everywhere, no matter where they live, to give back through various activations organized by the Surfrider Foundation.
