Catch a wave on International Surfing Day

Surfers worldwide unite to celebrate surfing and coastal environments tomorrow for summer solstice — surfers from around the world will wax their surfboards and catch a wave in honor of International Surfing Day.

 Established four years ago by the Surfrider Foundation and Surfing Magazine, International Surfing Day is the one day a year where surfers from around the globe come together to celebrate the sport of surfing and pitch in to give back to our world’s oceans, waves and beaches. 

As is tradition, the Surfrider Foundation will commemorate the day by hosting various coastal clean-up and restoration events around the world. However there will be a new twist this year in the form of special challenges whereby the public will be able to compete for prizes by participating in a wide range of activities ranging from beach clean-ups, to filmmaking to art contests.

 The Kaua’i Chapter will sponsor the Nawiliwili Harbor Clean-up. Meet at 9 a.m. at Nawiliwili Yacht Club. Bring sunscreen, hat and water. Trash bags and gloves will be provided. Participating agencies are Surfrider Foundation, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Nawiliwili Yacht Club, DLNR Division of Boating and Ocean Recreation, U.S. Coast Guard, Nukumoi Surf Company and Starbucks Coffee, Kukui Grove.
