International Surfing Day

June 20, 2009 is 5th Annual International Surfing Day. “We have been working to restore Surfers’ Point for over 15 years and wanted to use this fun filled event to showcase the needs of one of Ventura’s most valuable resources,” said Vince Kinsch, chairman of Surfrider Foundation’s Ventura County Chapter. “We invite everyone to celebrate with us for a day of surfing, music, movies and activism.”

International Surfing Day will begin with a 10:00am beach clean-up at Surfers’ Point in Ventura, followed by a paddle out at 12:00pm. All clean-up supplies will be provided, but bring your surfboard to participate in the ceremonial paddle out afterwards.

Zoey’s presents an evening at The Lodge, 11 S. Ash St., in Downtown Ventura, with other sponsors New Belgium Brewery and Barefoot Winery. There will be a VIP reception before the show for beach clean-up participants and VIP ticket holders. Doors will open at 7:00pm for the premiere of the independent film, Watershed Revolution, which profiles concerned citizens working to protect and preserve the Ventura River and our coastal resources. Then a benefit concert will feature performances by Sunshine Brothers and John Cruz.

The event will include a live and silent auction with items from local business. Tickets for the event are $20/$35 VIP, and are available at
