Our ocean, waves and beaches belong to all of us and it is our job to protect them.
“You are something the whole universe is doing, in the same way that a wave is something that the whole ocean is doing… your living organism and all of its behavior.. its expressing itself as a singer sings a song.”
“We keep water clean, we ensure beach access, we protect the ocean, and we preserve the coast. We turn local passion into protection. We don’t just play, we win.”
“20,000 health warnings at beaches across America every year
60,000 tons plastic dumped in to oceans daily
More than 80% of the nations beaches are eroding “
Surfrider has built a network of coastal defenders who transform their passion for our coasts into lasting protection. Bridging local knowledge with national experts in law, policy and science, our formula for success — both the playbook and the team — produces victories for our beaches year after year. Over the last three decades we have a track record of more than 350 victories (since we started counting in 2006!). We don’t just play. We win.
