On the 20th June, wave riders celebrate the International Surfing Day. Time for surfers to be proud of their sport, and help keeping our oceans and environment pure and protected.

The International Surfing Day was established in 2005. Every year, surfers and surfing fans run contests, eco-friendly events, barbecues, film screenings, beach cleanups and multiple ocean-based activities.

These celebrations are held all over the world. Until 2013, the International Surfing Day was celebrated in two different dates. One was run by the Surfrider Foundation, and the other one was put out by EuroSima.

The last 24 surfers of the Los Cabos Open of Surf have been confirmed, in clean two-to-four foot surf at Zippers.

The largest surf contest in Mexico's history plays a crucial role in determining qualifiers for the 2015 ASP World Championship Tour.

While Italo Ferreira secured the highest heat total (16.80 points) of Round 3, Wiggolly Dantas continued his winning ways in Mexico following a victory at the recent Prime in Saquarema.

The world's first ever city surf management plan will be implemented in the Gold Coast, Australia.

The Gold Coast Surf Council (GCSC) was established at Kirra, in 2012. With the support of the local authorities, it has been developing strategic rules for the regulation of surfing in the region.

Governing bodies and institutions such as the ASP, National Surfing Reserves, Surfrider Foundation, and Surfing Queensland are already taking part in the Advisory Committee.
