International Surfing Day | 20 June at Dune Cafe

Surfrider Foundation is inviting Gold Coasters to celebrate all things surf and sustainability at a fundraising event that coincides with International Surfing Day.

The event will be held on Saturday 20 June at Dune Café, Palm Beach from midday and will feature a wooden surfboard teams challenge, dune care activities and beach clean up and a screening of Sand Wars.

The teams challenge will see groups of four compete on wooden alaias for the Roots of Surfing Wooden Surfboard Teams Challenge. There will only be six teams who will surf two waves in groups of six in a tag-team format. Alaias will be provided and while the judging format follows standard surf competition criteria, the emphasis is very much on having fun and promoting sustainable surfing.

An expression session for experienced wooden surfboard enthusiasts will follow the Teams Challenge and there are a bunch of cool prizes up for grabs. Following the surfing events, a planting and beach clean up will take place with a screening of Sand Wars from 3.00pm.
