The best way to celebrate the ocean, is to treat her well.

For 2016 International Surfing Day's 11th Annual celebration Slyde Handboards joined Surfrider tri-chapters of Newport, Long Beach & the Huntington/Seal Beach in a beach clean up of epic proportions.

Just north of the famous Huntington Beach Pier448 volunteer's joined efforts, picking up more than 561.95lbs of trash.

The Slyde Teamhas found beach cleanups one of the most rewarding projects to take part in, and encourage each an everyone of you to join in on local efforts, where you may be.

"Beach Cleans not only bring the coolest ocean loving people together, it's so satisfying to see such visible results from your efforts." Angela Watts
