International Surfing Day & GoPro Video Contest

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.
