Surfrider chapters, clubs, volunteers, and communities across the globe are coming together for International Surfing Day—a day to celebrate our ocean, waves and beaches for all people to enjoy. (Scroll down to find an event near you.)
The theme this year is, “The Beach Belongs to Everyone.” For decades, the Surfrider Foundation has championed to keep our beaches accessible and welcoming for all people to enjoy—regardless of race, socioeconomic background, ability or gender identity. This International Surfing Day, we are celebrating the joy and excitement that the beach brings to all of us.
This International Surfing Day (ISD) also falls on Juneteenth, a day acknowledging emancipation and the end of slavery in the United States. We proudly stand beside the Black community and we vow to ensure that our ocean, waves and beaches are accessible and welcoming to everyone. We can’t solve our environmental challenges without addressing our social challenges first. Racism has no place in our community and Surfrider is committed to ensuring a vibrant and inclusive beach culture for all.
Our chapters are hosting events across California, so chances are there is one near you! Click the links below to find out more.
