Summer is coming for some of you and is ending for others. All riders are in the water and the thousands of organizers of the International Surfing Day hurry to prepare the big day of Sunday, June 20. About 40 countries are getting ready to welcome more than 200 events.

This day aims to make discover surfing as a sport and culture thanks to many activities offered all around the world.

Initiations, contests, products testing, demos, actions for environmental awareness, beach games, parties... Here are some activities organized by all the surf community (schools, clubs, associations, shops, shapers, riders...).
