Our mission is the protection and enjoyment of oceans, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network.
You can think about that as three concepts. “Protection and enjoyment” — we don’t want to put a velvet rope around a beach and tell people to keep off. We’re surfers, we’re beach goers, we’re water-lovin’ folks… we enjoy the coasts! We’re a user group.
Next up is “oceans, waves and beaches” – Think coastlines; we’re engaged with environmental issues that affect our coastlines.
“Powerful activist network” speaks to how we go about this mission. We are a grassroots organization. We’re moms, dads, surfers, kids, teens and in-betweens… we’re you. We are engaged to protect what we love: oceans, waves and beaches.
We’re local in many coastal regions. We’re here in Maine and YOU can get involved! Help us strengthen our voice in Maine and around the globe by becoming a member today: Join Surfrider Foundation!
When you donate directly to the Maine Chapter, we’re able to use those funds to create promotional materials for our ongoing campaigns (RAP and Beach Access) as well as fund the legal work we do to keep beaches freely accessible to the public.
