The Surfrider Foundation

The Surfrider Foundation is a non-profit grassroots organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of our world’s oceans, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network. Founded in 1984 by a handful of visionary surfers in Malibu, California, the Surfrider Foundation now maintains a network of 84 chapters, including 30 high school and college clubs, and more than 250,000 activists, supporters and volunteers around the country. Armed with a model to defend the coast, the organization has achieved a record of 271 coastal victories (and counting) since 2006.

The Surfrider Foundation has the largest volunteer-activist network in coastal communities around the country solely dedicated to protecting our coastlines. With their feet in the sand, these activists witness and defend against threats to our oceans through campaign, program and educational initiatives.  To volunteer, click here.
