International Surfing Day

From Beachapedia

International Surfing Day (ISD) is a worldwide celebration of the sport of surfing, held annually on or near the date of the summer solstice (longest day of the year).

International Surfing Day was established in 2004 by The Surfrider Foundation and Surfing Magazine. ISD has grown to over 200 separate events in over 30 different countries. From paddle-outs to beach clean-ups, surf movie nights to mangrove restorations, surfers around the world come together on this day to both celebrate the sport of surfing, and to give something back to the oceans, waves and beaches that give us all so much.

In 2012 the California Assembly approved a resolution declaring June 20 International Surfing Day. They repeated this in 2013.
