We love surfing just as much as anyone—but we ask you to please stay home, honor beach closures, and avoid travel and crowded public spaces of any kind. Let's all work together, so that we can get back in the water as soon as possibleCDC Website
Our beaches are disappearing at an alarming rate. Our report finds that only 8 out of 30 US states are doing a ‘fair or better’ job of responding to erosion and coastal preservation.

We are a volunteer-run, non-profit organization consisting of a diverse group of activists, researchers, and dedicated Bay Area community members. We work at the local, state, and federal levels to protect and enjoy the places we love.
We are a grassroots organization that was started in 1984 by a group of surfers that came together to protect Malibu from overdevelopment and pollution. Our chapter is part of one of the most powerful coastal protection groups in the world, with over 500,000 members, 84 chapters, and 40 clubs.
The San Francisco Surfrider Foundation is responsible for protecting our diverse coastline. We strive to be an integral part of our community by organizing beach cleanups, educational events, social gatherings, and more. Based on our geography, we are on the front lines to the threat of sea-level rise. We work with the City and numerous stakeholders, to make sure we protect our coastlines without destroying our beaches.
We invite anyone passionate about protecting and preserving San Francisco’s coastlines, ensuring the Bay Area’s beaches are accessible, protecting our ocean, and keeping plastic from polluting our waterways—to get involved.
Let’s find creative ways to prevent plastic pollution.
