Yes September the 22nd is the date for what you might call alternate surfboard gatherings. Starting with the first Wanda Beach Fish Fry on the South side of Sydney Australia put on by Ben Di Bonato.
Then there is the 6th Annual European Fish Fry to be held at Crackington Haven , North Cornwall in England by Mick – 01825 721 117 / 07968 175 021,

Also on this day is the Single Fin Classic Festival of Surfing at Pietrasanta which is just 30km north of Pisa in Italy that is being host by good friend Marco Mazzini and his friends . singlefinit.blogspot.it
So if you live near any of these locations or can get to them in a couple of weeks time I am sure you will be surrounded by a group of like minded people who love to surf and enjoy riding all sorts of boards. This is something that is growing and spreading across the surfing community.
There have also been a Fish Fry in Japan and of course the original ones in California.This is the one I went to in Oceanside in 2006.
