The city of San Sebastian promoted the creation of the World Network of Surf Cities and leads the technical secretariat for the coordination of its activities. All the cities in the Network form part of the Management Committee.
The cities in the Network celebrate an annual reunion for the presentation of the annual results and approve the plan activities for the following year. The event to launch the Network took place in San Sebastian in November 2011.
