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 over 250,000 supporters, activists and members worldwide. For 28 years the Surfrider Foundation has focused its core activities and campaigns on Water Quality, Beach Access, Coastal Preservation, and Special Place Protection. The Foundation’s Clean Water initiative focuses on protecting water quality in coastal watersheds and in the near-shore marine environment. The Beach Preservation initiative focuses on protecting beaches through conservation and responsible coastal management that avoids the creation of coastal hazards or erosion problems, and supports research and science-based management of coastal resources to promote sustainable, long term planning and preservation of beach environments including public access. The Foundation’s Beach Access initiative promotes the right to low-impact, free and open access to the world’s waves and beaches for all people. The Foundation’s Special Places initiative is designed to identify and protect ocean and coastal places through the establishment of marine protected areas. In addition, waves and surf breaks are natural recreational resources worthy of protection, and this initiative focuses on raising awareness about the importance of waves not only recreationally, but ecologically as well.
