Beach cleaning

The Surfrider Foundation Europe comes to Arguineguin …and they need you!

For the fifteenth year running, Surfrider Foundation Europe is organising the “Ocean Initiatives”, a major eco-friendly event devoted to the protection of our coastline, lakes and rivers and this year we will be involved right here in Arguineguin and in San Andres in the north of the island.

On Saturday 20th March, Surf Canaries is working with the Surfrider Foundation and is organizing the 2010 beach clean in Callao, Arguineguin (the surfing beach to the left of Fusion) and almost simultaneously, Club Oleaje (from the north of the island) will be cleaning San Andres beach 19th March, (16:00 - 18:00).

It is the first time that this event has ever been organised in Arguineguin and apart from being very important for improving our beach and the wildlife, education of the kids participating, it should also be a fun and very social event. Also, on a more serious note currently with this wave under threat from construction, this is our chance to show the politicians and public alike that us surfers value our beach.

So please come along! Bring your gloves, party atmosphere and let’s help the ocean that we all enjoy. At 10:00 am, Saturday 20th, on the car park of the football stadium in Arguineguin!

. 10:00 - 12:00 beach clean
. Free BBQ for after!
. Surfing (waves permitting!)
