Miami Chapter

About Surfrider Miami

Our Mission

The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network.

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 chartered in 1997, to ensure our beaches and water remain clean. We are committed to protecting our ocean, preserving our coast and keeping plastic from polluting our waterways. The beach belongs to ALL of us!
