As you might have heard, June 20th is the summer solstice. It is also, coincidentally, International Surfing Day.
It’s a celebration of the surfing lifestyle, and of the communal bonds forged by surfing. And that’s not a fact that escaped some of the world’s top surfers.
Reigning world champion Adriano de Souza got in on the fun, posting a photo of himself surfing Cloudbreak:
The oft-irreverent Kalani Robb posted a photo with Tyler Stanaland showing off his finest kook fashion:
While he might be known for his aerials, Brazilian sensation Filipe Toledo took to the waters of Tavarua to showcase his longboard skills:
Fellow Brazilian Wiggolly Dantas took the opportunity to thank all the lifeguards across the globe who keep surfers safe:
Happy International Surfing Day. For #ISD2016, today only, @quiksilver are donating $10 from every boardshort sold to the North Shore Lifeguard Association. In @koarothman's words, "No one would feel safe without them". Wherever you are today, take a moment to thank your local lifeguard for keeping us all safe. @northshorelifeguardassociation #tbt
South African pro surfer Bianca Buitendag showed off a photo of herself about to get barreled:
And finally, Lyndie Irons, the wife of late surf great Andy Irons, captured perhaps the truest representation of the spirit of International Surfing Day by sharing a photo of her young son Axel Irons shredding:
We hope that you too get to shred on International Surfing Day.
