We focus our efforts on 5 key areas
Our ocean faces growing challenges from pollution, offshore development and climate change. At the same time, expanding industries, such as offshore oil drilling, threaten to crowd our ocean and degrade its health (and those who call it home!).

Every day poses new threats to our oceans and beaches. Our ocean and special places must be proactively protected before they are threatened and stem the tide before further damage is done to the ocean’s health.

This is precisely why Surfrider has built a network of passion-driven people who are on the ground and are the voice for our ocean and beaches. With one foot in the sand and the other in the water, Surfrider is the only non-profit organization who is 100% focused on our coasts.

BEACH ACCESS: Keep our beaches accessible for all to enjoy.

CLEAN WATER: Protect our water resources and prevent pollution from reaching the ocean.

OCEAN PROTECTION: Protect our ocean and address the dangers to it, today and in the future.

COASTAL PRESERVATION: Ensure our beaches and natural shorelines don't vanish before our eyes.

PLASTIC POLLUTION: Reduce the impacts of plastics in the marine environment starts with us.
