Donate to Surfrider Foundation through our silent auction and boat auction at Paddlefest.
Surfrider Foundation started in 1984 in Malibu, California. Today, Surfrider has evolved into one of the largest non-profit grassroots organizations dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world's ocean, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network. There are over 250,000 members worldwide in 18 different countries. Locally, BC has three Surfrider chapters that are part of the larger Surfrider organization: Vancouver Island, Pacific Rim and Vancouver. The four core program areas are: beach access, clean water, coastal preservation (costal development) and ocean protection.
