Our Work

Transforming passion into protection

Surfrider Foundation’s focus is 100% on protecting and preserving our ocean, beaches & waves.

“We’re champions for the surf and sand…”

The Surfrider Foundation has a proven model for success—a playbook and a team—that transforms passion into protection. We continue to leverage that model within our network of chapters and clubs. We ensure beaches are accessible, keep our water clean, protect our ocean, preserve our coasts and keep plastic from polluting our waterways.

Our irreplaceable national network of chapter volunteers serves as the first response to local threats in coastal communities across the US. They are the boots on the ground who collaborate on both the local and national level with regional staff and issue experts to carry out our mission through campaign, program and educational initiatives in their local communities.
Advocacy for our Oceans

4/23/19 Pass A Resolution

Martin County Commissioners vote unanimously to pass a local resolution to reduce single-use plastics and polystyrenes in our local community. The plan roles out in steps. the intent is to celebrate local restaurant owners they have partnered with the Treasure Coast Surfrider Foundation in efforts to be Ocean Friendly. These Ocean Friendly Restaurants known as OFRs take a few extra steps like recycling, reducing, and offering Earth Friendly options.

Today’s commission meeting was so promising. There was a general sense of responsible stewards looking out for community.

May 13th we meet with the City of Stuart Officials, hopefully to the same effect.

5/13/19 We are please to report in that the City of Stuart passed unanimously a resolution to reduce single-use plastics. That have also decided to move forward with a workshop to plan for a ban on plastic single use straws and bags, along with polystyrene. This is fantastic news.

Thanks Governor Ron De Santis, without your veto our hands would be tied!
