Every day, the Surfrider Foundation and our volunteer activist network work to protect our coasts. On International Surfing Day, we take a moment to celebrate and enjoy the beaches and waves that we all love.

“Protect & Enjoy” is this year’s ISD theme as well as a key part of the Surfrider mission. Head to the beach, go for a surf with a friend or better yet introduce the stoke of surfing to someone new. While you’re at it participate in a beach cleanup and leave your local surf spot better than you found it.

This year, while we band together on this special day to share waves, we also aim to raise awareness of urgent threats to our precious coastline, like new offshore oil drilling. We’re calling on our government leaders to officially cancel plans for oil drilling and we’re asking coastal enthusiasts everywhere to join us and voice their opposition.
