In Memory of Tony Soriano

Tony Will Be Missed but Not Forgotten

We are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear friend, father, and dedicated coastal activist, Tony Soriano. He was with our chapter for over two decades. Tony was a surfer, photographer and a long-time Surfrider volunteer.

Tony was a driving force for the chapter, working passionately to protect the coasts of North Orange County and beyond. He led numerous successful programs and campaigns, like working to stop offshore drilling, reducing cigarette butt litter, and banning single-use plastic bags. Tony’s generous heart and his warm voice inspired everyone that interacted with him. His absence will be felt far beyond the Surfrider community.

We know his legacy in conservation will live on through all the great work he did to protect the ocean, waves, and beaches through those who are passionately following in his footsteps.


For Tony
