The Beach Belongs to Everyone!


Saturday, June 18th 2022

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

The theme of ISD is “The Beach Belongs to Everyone.” For decades, Surfrider has championed to keep our beaches accessible and welcoming for all people to enjoy—regardless of race, socioeconomic background, ability or gender identity. This International Surfing Day, we are celebrating the joy and excitement that the beach brings to all of us.

Surfing is an amazing gift and the beach is an incredible place that should be healthy, safe and accessible to all people. As surfers and beachgoers alike, it is our responsibility to foster a vibrant, inclusive community that comes together to protect and enjoy this extraordinary resource.

Now in its 18th year, ISD has grown into the largest global activation for Surfrider each year, with more than 200 events taking place worldwide in 2021.

Over the years, ISD event locations have included Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Canada, France, the UK, Argentina, Japan, and thousands of events in the United States!
