A little over 25 years ago three people in Malibu, California found out that their favorite wave was about to be destroyed. Think about that for a second. Think about something you love... something that gives you enjoyment. Taken away. This was the genesis of Surfrider Foundation. Surfrider's mission is the protection and enjoyment of oceans, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network.
You can think about that as three concepts. "Protection and enjoyment", we don't want to put a velvet rope around a beach and tell people to keep off. We're surfers, we're beach goers, we're watermen... we enjoy the coasts. We're a user group. Next up is "oceans, waves and beaches." Think coastlines, we're engaged with environmental issues that affect our coastlines. "Powerful activist network" speaks to how we go about this mission. We are a grassroots organization. We're local in many coastal regions.
We're moms, we're surfers, we're kids and teens... we're you. We're engaged to protect what we love; oceans, waves and beaches.
Unrestricted support to the Surfrider Foundation gets us one step closer to our vision of Healthy Coasts and support our efforts to preserve beach access, prevent beach loss, protect special places and eliminate ocean water pollution.
Here are some examples of what your support will enable:
It is our goal to be the best possible stewards of your gift.
