International Surfing Day 2012 Preview

International Surfing Day is celebrating it’s eighth annual event that has grown to over 200 separate events in over 25 different countries. From paddle-outs to beach clean-ups, surf movie nights to mangrove restorations, surfers across the world will be coming together on June 20th 2012 to both celebrate the sport of surfing, and to give something back to the oceans, waves and beaches that give us all so much.

As Surfrider’s exclusive retail destination, SWELL again joined the ISD celebration by taking part in the first annual live 8-hour webcast. Hosted by Chris Cote and Susan Holmes McKegan, the live broadcast will feature pro surfers, industry icons, bikini fashion models, live bands, movie premiers, eco seminars, an eco product showcase by SWELL, and more.

To commemorate our spiritual obsession with the ocean, Surfrider put together membership packages of epic proportions! For one day only, you can score a GoPro, Dakine backpack, and tons of surf gear for less than cost! They’re subsidizing the cost in honor of the ocean and to get more members, so tune in on Wednesday to get dialed into 8 hours of surf madness. Read more about the epic Surfrider membership deals here.

SWELL prides ourselves in carrying the largest assortment of eco-friendly products. The surf industry is leading the charge in front engineering products that remove waste from our oceans instead of adding more. From boardshorts made of plastic bottles, to sustainable bamboo fibers in wet-suits, we’d be hypocrites not to care for the seas, right? Checkout SWELL’s eco shop here
