International Surfing Day 2009 @ La Push

International Surfing Day, June 20, 2009, at La Push, was a good day.
Mostly clear and warm weather, good waves, and good feelings.
Picked up trash, had a hot-dog, went for a surf, met some new friends, got caught up in a Quileute wedding procession, what it's all about.

This young volunteer was the big prize winner with 11 bags of trash hauled in from First Beach

Thanks to all the Surfrider members and public volunteers who helped clean up First Beach. You are making a direct improvement to our surfing environment.

Special thanks to OPC members Frank Crippen, Darryl Wood, & Charlie Parks, for organizing logistics, hauling stuff, hustling up new members and generally helping out.

We especially want to thank the Quileute Tribe and Lonesome Creek RV Park for sharing their home with us and letting us hold ISD 2009 on their land.
