Dual Membership Allows Boardsports Enthusiasts To Protect Where They Play
The Surfrider Foundation, the leading name in beach and coastal protection, has teamed up with Protect Our Winters, the top non-profit from the world of snow sports to offer a combined membership that will allow boardsports enthusiasts to protect where they play.
Founded three short years ago, Protect Our Winters has quickly established itself as the leading environmental voice in the snow sports industry. During that time the group has successfully worked to place several solar energy projects in rural communities, appeared before Congress on Capitol Hill, and inspired the environmentally themed film project “Generations.”
For over twenty-five years the Surfrider Foundation has led in beach and coastal protection. As the original and largest non-profit in the action sports community, Surfrider Foundation been instrumental in keeping our coastal waters clean through their Blue Water Task Force program, and protecting world-class beaches and breaks such as Trestles from development.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be teaming up with Protect Our Winters,” says Surfrider Foundation CEO Jim Moriarty. “This is a great opportunity for outdoor enthusiasts to support two great organizations in protecting our playgrounds, be they sea or summit.”
The Protect Our Winters / Surfrider Foundation memberships are just $40 annually – a $5 savings off buying both memberships separately. To sign up, simply go to www.protectourwinters.org/protect-where-you-play.
