About International Surfing Day:

Surfrider Foundation and Surfing Magazine founded International Surf Day six years ago. ISD unites surfers worldwide in surfing celebration. Traditionally, the annual holiday encourages surfers to do their part in giving back to our oceans, waves and beaches. Achievements vary through grass-roots organized events such as clean-ups and restoration projects hosted by the Surfrider Foundation Chapters.

“We started it as a way to get back to the basics, enjoy a day at the beach and help preserve our oceans,” says ISD Co-Founder Evan Slater.

And the Suncoast Surfriders prove they are not to be out done:
