Chapter Initiatives

From protecting our natural dune system to decreasing our carbon footprint to reducing plastic pollution, Our chapter initiatives help ensure that our marine ecosystems are protected.

Beach Access

Our beaches are the entryway to our ocean and other waterways and we believe they should be accessible to everyone. This is why our network of experts, volunteers, and members work with local decision-making bodies to evaluate each beach and waterway access issue that arises.

Protecting The South Beach Surf Break

South Beach can be a rare world know surf break during the right conditions. This unique phenomenon brings visitors and even pro-surfers from around the world to surf the massive shore break. 

With the recent increase in nearshore projects, Surfrider Miami Chapter is dedicated to keeping the integrity of our beach and break.
