International Surfing Day, 2023
International Surfing Day (ISD) was established by The Surfrider Foundation and Surfing Magazine in 2004. Sure, its a day for the surfers, but it may mean a shoreline party, drinks at the bar after, or a chance to get involved in repairing our damaged world.
This event is celebrated globally in almost all the places with a surfing culture – and some without. Here is a glance at a few of the things going on. The motto of ISD is ‘The Beach Belongs to Everyone’.
In the last decade there have been a million participants getting involved in activities held across more than 30 countries to celebrate the day.
