To celebrate International Surfing Day the WBLA is gifting refurbished surfboards to beginning or intermediate surfers in need, including longboards, fun boards, and performance short boards that have been refurbished by Dr. Ding. These boards are ideal for surfers looking to progress from foam boards or those in need of new equipment but facing financial constraints. This sustainable program helps to keep used boards out of our local landfills and puts them back into other surfers hands for a new life.

Winners will be announced and boards will be presented on International Surfing Day on Saturday, June 15th from 3pm – 5pm at Jerry Allen’s at 38 N. Lumina Avenue on Wrightsville Beach.
