Reducing the impact of plastics in the marine environments that surround us.
Defending our ocean from challenges threatening the vitality of the ecosystem.
Working with decision-makers to ensure full and fair beach access for all to enjoy.
Taking on issues that threaten our beaches and natural shorelines.
Protecting the health and sustainability of our planet's most precious resource.
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.
We are working with the City of Irvine to craft an ordinance to phase out non-essential single use plastics. If passed it will be the most comprehensive plastic waste reduction act in Southern California.
The Surfrider Foundation’s biggest strength is our grassroots, community based chapters and their ability to act as local activists for the protection of the coast.
