Roxy and Quiksilver Celebrate International Surfing Day with Kind Surf


On Friday, June 20th, Roxy and Quiksilver teamed up with Kind Surf to host a beach day for disadvantaged kids in Valencia, Spain at Port Saplaya beach who would otherwise not have had an opportunity to enjoy International Surfing Day.

International Surfing Day with Kind Surf

Kind Surf is an international non-profit organization that helps disadvantaged kids through the practice of surfing and environmental education. It was founded by Almudena Fernandez, an international model, eco-activist and OCEANA Ambassador who is passionate about sustainability and preserving the earth’s natural resources for generations to come.

The ISD celebration started at 4pm on Friday 20 June with 15 kids in disadvantaged situations, consisting of two different groups and a dedicated Kind Surf instructor for each participant:

• 8 kids from Adisto Fundation, which help those with Cerebral Palsy, Autism and Down’s Syndrome

• 7 kids from NovaVida Fundation, helping those at risk of social exclusion

• 12 Kind Surf members, 5 volunteers, and Quiksilver team rider Aritz Aranburu

The Kind Surf team started the day off with an environmental class, teaching the importance of respecting all of the ocean’s creatures and keeping the beach clean from plastics and trash. After a quick beach clean-up, the kids warmed up for their intro surf sessions.

The conditions were perfect for some fun waves! After lots of laughs and some happy tears, the day ended with a group photo and new Kind Surf tee shirts for all of the kids.

In addition to the activity hosted in Spain, Roxy and Quiksilver donated a portion of sales from every boardshort and swim piece bought on Roxy.com and Quiksilver.com worldwide on International Surfing Day as an additional contribution to Kind Surf. This not only helped make a special day a reality for the 15 kids in attendance, but will help ensure others can enjoy special events like this in the future as well.
