California Surfing Day

September 2019

Surfing has long been a key component of California culture. In 2018, the California Legislature declared surfing the official state sport and named Sept. 20 as California Surfing Day.

Please join Visit California in taking part in celebrating the Golden State’s famed surf culture on Sept. 20. A number of resources have been developed for businesses and destinations to help spread the word in your local communities, including social media imagery and posts, an official logo and more. Share your celebrations online using the hashtag #CaliforniaSurfingDay to show the world how the Golden State rides its waves.
