International Surfing Day and the stars will be out

Posted by: on June 6th, 2015

Every year at this time Surfrider Foundation celebrates International Surfing Day with beach clean-ups and the like. It’s also an occasion for Surfrider crew and friends to get together for a few libations and delectations of a foodly sort. This time around the beach cleans will be happening again, but here on the northern beaches there’s also going to be a fundraiser night of the surfing stars at Harbord Diggers from 4pm on Friday the 19th of June. And Surfrider wants everybody to come along.

It’ll be a chance to mix with such surfing royalty as Layne Beachley, Barton Lynch, Rabbit Bartholomew, Damien Hardman, Phyllis O’Donell, Simon Anderson, Jack McCoy, Nathan Hedge, Rob Bain and more. Plus the tunes will be in the capable hands of the northern beaches own Celibate Rifles. Jack McCoy will be sharing surfing flicks, there’ll be barefoot bowls with a unique surfer twist (bias?), major door prizes (want a new board?) and of course food and drink. Among the highlights of the evening will be the unveiling of a beautiful sandstone sculpture by Mick Purdy which will become part of the Freshwater headland’s Surfers Walk of Fame.

Getting wet for International Surfing Day

Posted by: on June 20th, 2009

Hello Friends,

Just back from a little beach clean up to celebrate International Surfing Day. Surfrider Foundation northern beaches chapter couldn’t be put off by gale force wind and torrential rain. We combed the length of Fishermans around to Collaroy for rubbish and I’m happy to report that while we definitely picked up a few tens of kilos, the beach was in very good shape – particularly in light of the stormwater rushing out at three or four different spots.

Interestingly there were a fair number of bluebottles washed up along the high tide line. I guess we can expect a few more as the NE’r continues to hammer us.

Grabbed a few snaps of the happy crew…
