Our Mission

The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves and beaches, for all people, through a powerful activist network.

OUR MISSION WHERE THE LAND MEETS THE SEA

Our Network

 

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. Our network grows stronger with every chapter we add.

Campaigns

 

At any given moment, we're working on more than 100 campaigns across the country.  Each and every campaign has a defined beginning, middle and end. We've had 661 campaigns become victories since 2006.

Our Team

 

Our staff of over 50 people help support our chapter network in their campaigns, champion for policy and fight legal battles for our coasts, bring awareness to the issues facing our ocean, provide critical support for areas like accounting, technology, and HR, and raise money to make all of this happen. We have an appetite for adventure and we all share a common passion - we love and appreciate our ocean, waves and beaches.
