Surfrider Foundation Hosts 11th Annual International Surfing Day

by Frank Chenault

Currently working as an acquisitions director for his own firm, Chenault Enterprises, Frank Chenault honed his skills while working at Quantum Group. In that position, he contacted tower owners across the country to determine if they wanted to sell their sites. Also a longtime surfer who grew up around Big Sur, California, Frank Chenault spends his down time surfing and supports the Surfrider Foundation.
A nonprofit organization, the Surfrider Foundation aims to protect the world’s oceans and beaches. The organization began in 1984 when several California surfers saw a need to help maintain their surfing environment. Today, the environmental organization boasts more than 50,000 members and 90 separate chapters.
On June 20, 2015, the Surfrider Foundation held its 11th annual International Surfing Day (ISD). This day encouraged people across the world to give back and protect the ocean. More than 80 events occurred in the United States, ranging from southern California to northern Maine. At California’s Huntington Beach, a record-breaking attempt at surfing the world’s largest surfboard took place. Since ISD’s inception, more than 30 countries have participated with more than 1 million people cleaning up more than 70 tons of trash.
