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.

With much uncertainty this year as we approach ISD 2020, we are anticipating that most parts of the country will not be able to participate in large scale ISD events. With that in mind, we have developed some ways to still enjoy ISD even if you cannot go to the beach or can only visit in a limited capacity. This year, due to unique physical distancing guidelines we ask that you adhere to all local and state regulations for any ISD gatherings.

We will also be utilizing ISD to raise awareness of urgent threats to that climate change is having on our coastlines and ocean. We’re calling on our government leaders to take climate action now and we’re asking coastal enthusiasts everywhere to join us and make their voice heard!

Sharing the stoke!

If your favorite beach or surf break is closed,  we have put together some ways to share the stoke at home.
