International Surfing Day- June 20th!

We’ll be joining our friends at the Cocoa Beach Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation to celebrate International Surfing Day on June 20th! Join us for:

  • Beach Cleanup
  • Kids painting and crafts
  • Raffles & giveaways

In addition, the Surfrider Foundation members will be helping Surfers for Autism this ISD!

Our celebration will be held at Lori Wilson Park (1500 N. Atlantic Av. Cocoa Beach, FL) from 9am-5pm.

Please note, parking will be at a premium. Use North and South parking and Tulip Ave. to the South of the park.

It’s easy to take the beaches and waves for granted every time you go to drop in a wave. But if we want to protect our ocean and waves, we need your help!

CFL Chapter Members,
These are simple calls to make but hold a lot of weight for the health of our waters. Remember that actions we take inland impact our oceans.

I just made the 18 calls in under 30 min, well worth the time if it helps to protect our waterways. You may speak to a live aid or get voicemail. Either way, please be respectful when delivering your message and leave your name, location, and phone number.

Help us let Tallahassee know that our precious resources are important to us. Names, numbers, and talking points below.
