The Wyldewood Surf Club will be hosting a Beach Clean-up of Pleasant Beach in conjunction with International Surfing Day 2014. This celebration helps bring in the summer, while sharing our passion for surf culture and the delicate beauty of our environment. Come fill up some trash bags, chat with some of the guys and gals, have a couple adult beverages, and grill up some meat (vegetarians also accommodated). If you surf this spot, come give back to the residents that allow us to use their beach. If you don't surf and you're just a super awesome person, help pay it forward to the locals and to the environment. Surf and Skate vendors will be present along with local media.
