Surfrider Foundation NYC is an environmental organization that advocates for the protection and enjoyment of our ocean, waves and beaches through a powerful grassroots activist network. The NYC chapter is one of 80 chapters across the country, making up the Surfrider Foundation network.
What We Do
We are a group of rockstar volunteers who defend our ocean and beaches from the threat of fossil fuel infrastructure, plastic pollution, poor water quality and more. Our work is primarily focused in Rockaway, where you will find us hosting regular beach clean ups, community events and working with local youth to foster the next generation of coastal defenders.
