The Surfrider Foundation is a non-profit grassroots organization dedicated to the protection and preservation of our world’s oceans, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network. Founded in 1984 by a handful of visionary surfers, the Surfrider Foundation now maintains over 50,000 members and 83 chapters across the United States and Puerto Rico, with international affiliates in Australia, Europe, Japan and Brazil
The South Sound Chapter of Surfrider serves the Tacoma, Gig Harbor and the southern Puget Sound region. We are an entirely volunteer run chapter consisting of 6 Executive Committee members. We are surfers, beach-goers, paddlers, divers, and those who simply love our marine waters and beaches in Washington State.
