On Saturday, June 20th, beachgoers and surf enthusiasts from around the world will come together to celebrate the Surfrider Foundation’s 11th Annual International Surfing Day. This year we will host a FREE family-friendly event in Ocean Beach (on the grassy area next to Veterans Plaza and the Santa Monica lifeguard station).

From 6-8pm we are teaming up with FM 94/9 to hold a great raffle, games, beverages, popcorn and pizza available. From 8-10pm there will be a free outdoor screening of the classic surf film, 5 Summer Stories. Attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket, towel, or lawn chair and watch the film from the grass.
