Join Surfrider-Milwaukee for the sixth annual Surf @Water, a celebration of Great Lakes surf culture on the beach in Shorewood, Wisconsin. This event is the premier fundraiser for Surfrider Foundation-Milwaukee.
SATURDAY MORNING CEREMONY:
SUNRISE PADDLE OUT
There's no better way to start your day — bring your board and meet us on the beach at 5:30. At 5:45 we'll paddle out and celebrate the sun!
Join us on the beach for contemplation, discussion, and freshwater fellowship. Morning Ceremony Coffee and pastries will be provided by our friends at Colectivo Coffee.
Shorewood resident and yoga instructor, Annie Melchior will be leading this year's Surf @Water's morning yoga session. This provides a great entry to a day of celebration, reflection and yes, relaxation.
Let's all do our part to leave the beach better than we found it! Join us as we clear our beach of unwanted trash and debris. Surfrider MKE will provide the bags.
