June 17, 2017 marks the 13th annual International Surfing Day (ISD). Each year celebrations take place across the globe in more than 30 countries featuring surf contests, barbecues, film screenings and other surf-related activities. In addition to celebrating the sport and lifestyle of surfing, participants also give back to our ocean, waves and beaches by organizing beach cleanups, habitat restoration and other acts promoting coastal protection.
Ghana will once again be participating in this great annual event. For the 3rd year running, Surf Star Ghana and Mr Brights surf shop will be hosting a surfing weekend end based from the famous Big Milly’s Backyard, Kokrobite.
