Ohana Day – April
A unique program to the Huntington/Seal Beach chapter. Ohana Day is the weekend before Earth Day, each year. It is a way for families to come together at the beach to learn about our earth, specifically the ocean and all it has to offer. We invite local businesses, green vendors, and friends of Surfrider to participate in a day of fun and education at the beach.
