Surfrider Foundation Maine Chapter



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

We drive the mission through campaigns. Learn more about our current campaigns in Maine here, and our victories here!

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 beachgoers, 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.

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!
