The Surfrider Foundation USA is a U.S. 501c grassroots non-profit environmental organization that works to protect and preserve the world's oceans, waves, and beaches. The Surfrider Foundation largely focuses its work on such issues as water quality, beach access, beach and surf spot preservation, and sustaining marine and coastal ecosystems. Right now, Surfrider has 56% of our coasts protected. We have a vision to protect 100% of the U.S. coastlines over the next five years. What does 100% coverage look like? It means that each mile of coastline – every beach and every wave – is protected. We will have a chapter of local volunteers, alongside experts in science, policy, legal issues and organizing to look after our ocean, waves and beaches across the country.
