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. 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.

With this opportunity came other pieces for British magazines, The Sunday Telegraph and now Travel Begins at 40.
