About Us

Who We Are
Mission: The Surfrider Foundation is a nonprofit grassroots organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s oceans, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network. Founded in 1984 by a handful of visionary surfers in Malibu, California, the Surfrider Foundation now maintains over 250,000 supporters, activists and members worldwide. The South Bay Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation is very proud of the efforts we have made, and the successes we have achieved in making our community a better place to live and enjoy the ocean. At our core, we are an environmental organization that strives to protect and, where necessary, restore coastal and ocean ecosystems and ensure free and open access to the beach and waves. We are dedicated to making our work FUN AND REWARDING!!
