We are the Vancouver chapter of the Surfrider Foundation, a global environmental non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of oceans, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network.


The Surfrider Foundation was started by a group of visionary surfers from Malibu, California back in 1984.

Our global headquarters is now based out of San Clemente, California.  We have nearly 80 chapters worldwide, with over 60 based in the United States and affiliates in Europe, Australia, Bazil, Japan, Peru, Argentina, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Mexico and there are currently three chapters here in British Columbia, Canada!

Our Vancouver chapter is 100% volunteer run by everyday people like you.

Who We Are

We’re more than just surfers. We’re  a community of beach and ocean enthusiasts who share a common vision of healthy and accessible oceans and coastlines, for now and for generations to come.

What We Do

We are active in the Vancouver community through outreach and education programs. We create hands-on opportunities to address ocean and coastal pollution.
