If you see more surfers riding the waves on Saturday, here’s why: Saturday is International Surfing Day!

Surfrider’s goal is “to bring 1 million people to the beach on June 17 to ‘share what you love.'”

The Surfrider Foundation and partners started the day in 2005 to raise support for the world’s beach and coastal environments.

Events are planned Saturday in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Canada, France, the UK, Argentina, Japan, and coastal communities across the U.S.

Locally, surf lessons are planned at Nomad Surf Shop in Boynton Beach.
