International Surfing Day
Globe lights up with International Surfing Day events
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 25 June, 2013 : - - Sunday June 23 saw the 10th edition of the annual International Surfing Day celebration. Around 200 events were organized in 29 countries for the 10th edition of International Surfing Day. Thousands of surf enthusiasts, beginners and experts, had the opportunity to enjoy free activities all across the planet on Sunday, June 23, 2013.
The program for International Surfing Day 2013 included first-timer surf lessons, demonstrations, competitions, gear tests, film showings, barbecues, concerts, Carnival, photo contests, evening parties or simply going out with friends to ride good waves.
This day full of excitement and energy would not have been nearly as successful without the entire international surf community (clubs, shops, schools, federations, riders, associations...) rallying together.
Event organizers EuroSIMA, the European Surfing Federation, Surfrider Foundation Europe and Surfers Against Sewage would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all partners and event organizers for the hard work, time and energy they once again dedicated to this day. This 10th edition hosted two new countries who joined the adventure: Russia and Taiwan. Each and every year more and more people are getting involved, demonstrating once again the community aspect and international nature of surfing.
