Join Surfrider, the largest network of coastal defenders in the world!


About:  We are Surfrider — a non-profit grassroots organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of our world’s oceans, waves and beaches. Founded in 1984 by a handful of visionary surfers in Malibu, California, the Surfrider Foundation now maintains over 50,000 members and 90 chapters worldwide.   Join us today.

Here is a message from Surfrider. 

You know the drill. Join us for a routine Saturday morning cleanup at the Venice Pier. We’ll have everything you need from bags to gloves to trash pickers (just bring a reusable water bottle to fill at our drinking station).

We need people like you who want to make sure our oceans, waves and beaches are protected and preserved for generations to come.
