International Surfing Day takes place on 20 June 2016 – time to grab your boards and start riding those waves!
This annual, global event is held around the world to mark the beginning of the summer and let everyone know surf’s up!
This special day has been a great way for people young and old to go to free events and learn more about surfing, whether you’re trying it for the first time or you’re an old pro!
Organising the events are the EuroSIMA (European Boardsports Industry Manufacturers Association), Surfrider Foundation and SAS (Surfers Against Sewage).
Working worldwide the groups will hold events to help everyone discover surfing and find out the difference it can make to you and your community as both a sport and a culture.
Throughout the day there will be a whole host of events held in hundred of counties. From surf lessons to beach clean-ups and surf contests, there’s plenty to keep everyone happy, with beach BBQs as a reward for all the hard work!
