Celebrating Women Making Waves

At Surfrider, we believe that when people come together as one, we have the power to make a difference for the protection of our ocean, waves and beaches. Our events are designed to raise awareness and funds to support our dedicated and effective network of passionate activists working around the nation. We are one Surfrider, protecting one ocean and one planet.  

We’ve had a number of major coastal victories recently that would not have been possible without the contributions of the extraordinary women who are part of Surfrider – scientists, attorneys, policy experts, teachers, volunteers, and surfers – women fighting to protect what we love. This year, we celebrate and honor all the Women Making Waves in their communities and across our network.

Join us for a lively evening, as we honor Jayma Cardoso of the Surf Lodge, in New York, and Kim Johnson of the Kokua Hawaii Foundation, in California, for their exemplary work to protect our ocean and their unwavering support of Surfrider.

WHAT DOES MY EVENT TICKET PURCHASE OR DONATION SUPPORT?

The 2018 Los Angeles event supported Surfrider’s volunteer-led efforts to protect the ocean and California coastline. Funds raised contributed to on-the-ground work in local communities to stop new offshore oil drilling and reduce plastic pollution. Surfrider rallied thousands of coastal defenders together in communities across the state to oppose new offshore drilling off our nation’s coasts. The organization has also registered more than 120 Ocean Friendly Restaurants in California to help reduce plastic pollution at the source.

The 2017 event proceeds empowered our activist network and united 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 event 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 event 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.
