Ever needed a legitimate excuse to go surfing or to the beach? Well, on June 21st you finally have it: International Surfing Day. Created by SURFING Magazine, this unofficial, official surfers' holiday gives us a chance to promote and celebrate the sport while bringing awareness to the state of our oceans and beaches.
 
Please note that Surfrider Foundation San Diego is moving the chapter meeting from Wednesday 20th to Thursday the 21st this month and there will be two gatherings, one at Cardiff by the lagoon mouth and one at Belmont Park in Mission Beach by lifeguard tower 13 from 6-8pm each.
 
Stop by early for a surf or your favorite beach activity. Everyone that helps with a beach cleanup at the event gets a free ticket to the San Diego County Fair! Everyone that attends the Mission Beach event also gets a special pass to a Wavehouse event that night.
