WHAT DOES MY EVENT TICKET PURCHASE OR DONATION SUPPORT?

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.
