Surfrider Foundation Maine Chapter



Our chapter is one part of a nationwide volunteer network that includes 80 chapters and 70 youth clubs, all aiming to drive the Surfrider Foundation mission to protect and enjoy the world’s ocean, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network.

You can think about that as three concepts. “Protect and enjoy” — we don’t want to put a velvet rope around a beach and tell people to keep off.  We’re surfers, we’re kayakers, we’re beach goers, we’re water-lovin’ folks… we’re all types of folks who enjoy the coast!  We’re a user group taking action to protect what we enjoy and love.

Next up is “ocean, 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.

The Surfrider Foundation Maine Chapter is engaged to protect what we love: Maine’s ocean, waves and beaches.

Surfrider is local in many coastal regions.  We’re here in Maine and YOU can get involved!


A healthy ocean and coastal ecosystem in Maine starts with you.  Come join forces with other like-minded folks to effect some positive changes!

We have a ton of opportunities for you to engage with our chapter, from helping staff tables at beach cleanups to organizing events to leading campaigns and signing-up to be a leader of our chapter to help steer the ship. There’s plenty to do for every age, ability, level of time commitment and interest!
