It's International Surfing Day!
Held annually on the third Saturday of June, International Surfing Day is an unofficial, environmentally conscious, sports-centered holiday that celebrates the sport of surfing, surfing lifestyle, and the sustainability of ocean resources. The day was established in 2005 by the Surfrider Foundation and other organisations. 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. So organise your own beach party today or better go on a cleaning drive with your family and friends.
