International Surfing Day: June 20, 2008

international surfing day 2008We’re sitting just a few days out from International Surfing Day so hopefully everyone has their plan of attack for celebrating what is truly the greatest sport around. Our friends at Surfing Magazine have marked June 20, 2008 as the day for surfers and those who love and appreciate everything surfing is about to not only promote wave-riding, but to also raise awareness for our oceans and beaches and the perils they face.

The goal is for all who enjoy surfing to paddle out wherever you may be, catch a few waves, and do your best to leave your location of choice in better shape than you found it. Surfrider Foundation and Surfing have organized several beach clean-ups, however, lending a helping hand and beautifying whatever location you may find yourself is encouraged by all.

Now what about those land-locked transplant surfers who find themselves far far away from any of our oceans or seas? For one group of surfers who now call Salt Lake City, UT. home, location makes no difference whatsoever. A group has been organized by several California natives who have surf-stoke running through their veins to hold a paddle-out in the Great Salt Lake. Although the forecast calls for windswell somewhere in the 4-8 inch range and locals consisting only of brine shrimp, this group of surfers is as excited as any I’ve come across to let everyone know what surfing means to them. I guess that kind of takes any excuses away from all of us located just minutes from the ocean to not go out and celebrate International Surfing Day.
