On Friday, beachgoers and surf enthusiasts from around the world will come together to celebrate the Surfrider Foundation’s 10-year anniversary of International Surfing Day.
The nonprofit organization, which is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of oceans, waves and beaches through an activist network, invites the public to save the date and get the day off work to join the fun.
“As we gear up to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of International Surfing Day, we encourage everyone to share the stoke of surfing and love for our oceans, waves and beaches,” said Robert Zelkovsky, Kauai Surfrider’s chair and media manager. “With more than 100 events already registered in 15 countries, this official surfer’s holiday provides the perfect excuse to paddle out with friends, enjoy the day and give back, no matter where you live.”
Kauai Surfrider will partner with The Grand Hyatt Poipu to host a cleanup of Keoneloa (Shipwreck) Beach beginning at 4 p.m. Gloves, bags and tools will be provided, and The Hyatt will treat participants to refreshments.
Prizes, like T-shirts, hats and assorted surf gear, will be on hand.
