The Surfrider Foundation is 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 over 250,000 supporters, activists and members and 100 chapters worldwide.
The Miami chapter was started by Wyatt Porter Brown and T.C in 1997, to begin pressing the City of Miami Beach to enforce existing litter laws and reverse the trashing of our local beaches.
