You're Invited to Help Protect & Cleanup Baldwin Beach on International Surfing Day

Hawaii Life is proud to sponsor the Surfrider Foundation’s International Surfing Day (ISD) on Maui, together with Dave Futch, taking place on June 15th, 2019 at Baldwin Beach Park in Paia.

International Surfing Day is a global event founded in 2005 by the Surfrider Foundation and Surfing Magazine. It’s held in 200+ locations around the world on the third Saturday of June each year.

So, what better way to kick off your weekend than with a free morning yoga class (all levels welcome!), a beach cleanup and a complimentary lunch provided by local Maui businesses to all volunteers!

Local vendors already on board include Tobi’s Shave Ice, pizza from Flatbread Company and Paia Bay Coffee for a little morning jolt to kick the day off right. 

It’s a great day to celebrate and protect what you love – our beautiful coastlines, beaches and ocean waves.

Dave Futch is one of many Hawaii Life agents and brokers on Maui spearheading this year’s efforts to make this event a success.

As Dave has been an avid surfer, kite and windsurfer in Maui for over 30 years, the Surfriders Foundation is a cause that means a lot to him personally - as protecting and keeping the ocean clean means not only having a clean ocean to surf in and for other marine sealife, yet it also means leaving a legacy for his own children and the future generations to come.

“Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers’ Maui agents share a common thread with the Surfrider Foundation in that we all want to live our lives on the beaches and help raise awareness of the importance of keeping them clean and safe,” Futch told us.

The beach cleanup is a community effort and one that’s being embraced wholeheartedly by our Maui real estate team. Futch invites all Maui residents to participate.

“Many hands make light work and together, we can make sure that this important area will be free from rubbish and things that don’t belong on our shores. We invite everyone who shares this philosophy and loves the beach to join us…we will make it easy and fun!” Dave said.

Protecting Our Coastlines

This year, while we band together on this special day to share waves, the Surfrider Foundation aims to raise awareness of urgent threats to our precious coastline, like new offshore oil drilling. They’re calling on government leaders to officially cancel plans for oil drilling and asking coastal enthusiasts everywhere to join them and voice their opposition.
