International Surfing Day scheduled to the 21st June

For its sixth edition, Europe will join the United States to celebrate the International Surfing Day everywhere in the world.

The event will take place on Sunday, June 21, 2009, along the International coasts.

Its principle is the same, the International Surfi ng Day is the occasion for new publics to discover the wonderful world of waves and surfi ng, share the values of conviviality and solidarity dear to surfers, and be educated to the fragility of our environment.

With more than 1 100 events and nearly 42 000 participants in Europe over the past five years, the Surfing Day has become THE event of reference for the boardsports universe.

Organized by EuroSIMA (European Boardsports Industry Manufacturers Association), and actively supported by the ESF (European Surfing Federation) and the Surfrider Foundation (organization dedicated to the protection of oceans, waves and beaches), the International Surfing Day was born from the desire to move closer, federate and unite all the actors of the surf scene, and participate together in the dynamism of local life.

Let’s all go to the beach to experience the surfers’ daily life, discover new boardsports activities, test products, meet professional riders and be educated to environmental awareness.

Everybody is very welcome to celebrate the International Surfing Day in many beaches all over the world.
Many countries are already involved in the event: Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, El Savador, France including Guadeloupe, French Guiana, Reunion and Mayotte, Ghana, Hawaii, Holland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, New-Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, the Canary Islands, the UK and the USA... and more to come.
