Founded 5 years ago by the Surfrider Foundation and Surfing Magazine, International Surfing Day (June 20, 2009) unites surfers from around the world in celebration of the sport of surfing. As is tradition with the annual holiday, surfers will do their part to give back to our oceans, waves and beaches through various organized events such as clean-ups and restoration projects courtesy of the Surfrider Foundation.
In addition to 100+ coastal events taking place worldwide, various International Surfing Day sponsors (like Monster Energy) will be hosting special “challenges,” that will allow the public to compete for prizes through various activities.
5 on-site challenges:
You Tube Challenge:
* Best ISD Influence Video
* Most Unique Piece of Trash
* Best Trash Sculpture
* Best Costume While Riding a Wave
Most Spots Surfed on ISD:
* Photo and/or Video Contest.
