International Surfing Day

Celebrating 10 years of International Surfing Day

Environment protection & passion for the sport surfing

International Surfing day was created to bring the surfing community together to celebrate the sport of surfing, promote sustainable practices within the industry and educate the masses about the issues that face our coastline and marine life. It is regularly observed with surf competitions, surf film screenings, group beach activities and a whole lot of love for the ocean. On 21st of June 2014 surfers and ocean dwellers were celebrating the pinnacle 10th anniversary of this blessed day that is growing in importance and relevance to surfers around the world.

After 5 years of Star Surf Camps we felt it was time to highlight our love for the sport and the issues that face it by celebrating International Surfing day in style. We recruited a band of musicians, journalists, bloggers, pro surfers, dancers, photographers and filmers to document the joy of surfing in all its forms. From first time surfers to young surfing professionals, from the laid back bohemian atmosphere of surfing to the importance of environmental issues. We hosted the participants from 31st May to 7th of June where we were blessed with great waves and even better weather. This allowed our photographers and film makers to capture amazing and unique footage including some beach clean time lapses, professional Billabong surfer Miles Lee Hargreevs ripping up the waves filmed with state of the art slow motion cameras (400fps) and a UV Rave night surf in the middle of a dramatic lightning storm. Also it includes footage of pro snowboader Tomek Wolak (Poland) showing him surfing.



Blogger and pro surfer from all over Europe celebrate in France

From 20th of June 2014 on we released content from our guest bloggers/journalists/musicians. We were looking to find partners/charities/surf brands and any companies with a vested interest in our beloved sport to get involved and help us to showcase this video to the surfing community. It is to be noted that although this is shot at Star Surf Camps in France this is not a promotional video or an advertisement but more of a showcase of surfing and the many walks of life who eat sleep and breath it.
