We're teaming up with FM949 to celebrate the 10th annual International Surfing Day on Friday, June 20th in Ocean Beach (on the grassy area next to Veterans Plaza and the Santa Monica lifeguard station). Join us for a free family-friendly event in celebration of the sport of surfing and our oceans, waves, and beaches!
During the day from 3-7pm, we will have our Surfrider Foundation booth set up, along with a local surf school who will be offering free group lessons at 3pm and 4pm (limited spaces available), and local surfboard shapers who will be showcasing some of their boards. We'll also have a classic woody car on site, courtesy of the OB Hotel, for you to take pictures with.
In the evening from 7-10pm, we will have a free outdoor screening of the classic surf film, the Endless Summer, as this year marks the 50th anniversary of the film. Attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket, towel, or lawn chair and watch the film from the grass. We will also have a raffle, popcorn and beverages by donation.
Throughout the day, Wonderland Pub will be featuring several of Karl Strauss' surf-inspired beers with a portion of the proceeds benefiting our mission to protect our oceans, waves, and beaches here in San Diego County!
Thank you to our sponsors for making this year's International Surfing Day event possible!
