About Surfrider Foundation Europe

Surfrider is a non profit organization, dedicated to defending, saving, improving and managing in a sustainable manner the ocean, coastline, waves and the people who enjoy them.

Surfrider Foundation is a global network of regional organizations and local chapters present in many countries and on every inhabited continent (USA, Europe, Japan, Australia, Latin America,…). It was started in 1984 in Malibu, California, where surfers aimed to protect their favourite surf spots from local pollution. Today, it is an Ocean community in a broad sense.

The Europe chapter was created in 1990 in Biarritz, France by surfers, including 3-time World Surfing Champion Tom Curren, the organization brings together today about 1500 volunteers, 8000 members, about 40 local chapters, and more than 40 000 supporters in Europe.
