*New this year* official after party for Montauk. Admission is included in the main event $500 ticket or can be purchased for $50 for those not attending the event from 6-9pm.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT THE EVENT?

The evenings will be treasured experiences, a gathering place for coastal enthusiasts of all kinds from activists to philanthropists and professional athletes to life long beach lovers. We will celebrate Surfrider’s coastal victories and the community of activists who make them possible.

Much like surfers protect the locations of their favorite breaks, the fundraisers will be held at “secret” locations to be disclosed only to ticketholders. 

Montauk

Guests will enjoy the musical stylings of DJ May Kwok, hand crafted cocktails and a gourmet dinner by the celebrated, Art of Eating, have the chance to bid on custom surfboards and chic beach items in the silent auction and win unforgettable experience packages in the live auction.

After the main program, we'll toast & dance under the stars at the official after party (same location) with a soulful and upbeat DJ performance by Sinkane!! Admission to the after party is included with tickets to the main event or can be purchased for $50 by those not attending the event from 6-9pm.

Los Angeles

We will gather to celebrate our achievements and the activists who make it all possible at a beautiful *new event location* in Los Angeles' Pacific Palisades. As our guest, you'll enjoy beautiful sweeping views, hand crafted cocktails, live music, special surprise guests, gourmet dinner and a night of dancing & connecting with our mission to protect our ocean, waves and beaches.

WHAT KIND OF MENU WILL BE SERVED?

We are excited to offer fresh, local and sustainable cuisine during both the cocktail hour and during the seated dinner at both events. Guests will enjoy a full open bar with premium handcrafted cocktails, beer and wine.

CAN YOU TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE EVENT ENTERTAINMENT?

MONTAUK

DJ May Kwok
DJ and fashion tastemaker May Kwok has been making waves in the New York social scene as a sought-after DJ by night and a visionary entrepreneur by day. May has become a commodity not only in the NY nightlife scene but she is also a globally coveted DJ for the industry's top VIP events and parties during New York and Paris Fashion Week.

Sinkane
Sinkane music -- every note of it -- comes straight out of a generosity of spirit. Never has that spirit been on more vivid display than on his uplifting new album Life & Livin' It. He makes music that is joyous, but also socially conscious when you scratch beneath the surface. His songs conjure up the simple pleasures of hanging with friends, but there are heavier vibes in there. This is feel-good music for trying times, celebrating what makes life good without ignoring what makes it hard.

WHAT DOES MY DONATION SUPPORT?

The 2017 event proceeds will empower our activist network and unite efforts in local communities on both coasts in celebration of Surfrider’s Clean Water initiative to save the waterways, reduce pollution in our oceans and protect the beaches by eradicating water pollution for us and future generations.

The 2016 Two Coasts One Ocean in Montauk funded two critical regional clean water and coastal preservation programs. The expansion of Surfrider’s Clean Water Initiative will build a water- testing lab at Stonybrook University to monitor water quality and notify the public about where and when it is safe to swim. The second project addresses sea level rise and coastal erosion through innovative research that will help protect Eastern Long Island’s coastline.

“Our Eastern Long Island Chapter identified two important projects that will ensure clean water and protect the beautiful coastlines of Eastern Long Island. Surfrider connects our national experts with our chapters to address issues from the ground up. Strong, local community connections are what makes our work successful and locally relevant.” 
- Dr. Chad Nelsen, CEO of the Surfrider Foundation.

The 2016 Two Coasts One Ocean in Malibu funded initiatives local to the California coast. Surfrider is further enabled to mobilize our California chapter network to hold the Coastal Commission accountable for protecting our beaches against harmful development and to raise awareness about plastic marine debris issues through our Rise Against Plastics program.
