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!
