Stoke Without Borders on International Surfing Day 2008

International Surfing Day 2008 UtahIt´s crazy how some of the most inspiring actions can come from the most unlikely of places. Yet such was the case when I accepted the invitation to join a group of some of the most perpetually stoked surfers I have ever come across to take part in celebrating Surfing Magazine´s International Surfing Day. The unlikely part? The celebration of the sport that this group is as passionate about any I´ve ever come across was to take place in none other than the city of Provo, UT. Obviously far far away from anything that resembled surf. Celebrating International Surfing Day in Provo?! Let´s put it this way, Provo would be on the exact and complete opposite side of the spectrum from your typical surf cities like Haleiwa, Santa Cruz, or Coolangatta. With that being said… somehow, someway, this group of wave-riders celebrated surfing in a way that would make any of it´s founding fathers proud.

The event took place in large part because of the organizing and motivating efforts of Matt Bradley and Johnny Millard. Both of whom are Southern California natives who through life’s twists and turns have settled with families in Utah. As I.S.D drew near, they took it upon themselves to rally every transplanted surfer in the area they could think of and contacted our friends at Surfing Magazine to find out how they could take part. In no time at all they received boxes full of banners, stickers, t-shirts, trash bags, and everything else needed for a good old fashioned beach clean up. The local authorities at a nearby lake were contacted and a section of ´beach´ was selected to do work on. All was in place, and now these fellas were ready to make it happen.
