Our Mission

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.

Bob is extremely well versed in organizational strategy and also has a deep understanding of nonprofit leadership - a stellar combination that ensured our one hour call was of huge value to my organization! Bob was able to pull out key pieces of information from me and immediately suggest some useful frameworks and concepts, which I actually started to implement as soon as I was off the call. The advice and insight he provided enabled me to take a more strategic view at our annual planning and helped me shape solutions to our obstacles. Additionally, Bob was just a pleasure to speak with!
