A Message From Our New Chair

As incoming chair for our local Surfrider Foundation Santa Cruz Chapter I am very much looking forward towards leading our team into a year filled with many good things. I am honored to be given a wonderful opportunity to work together with others that share the same love of the ocean as I do. This commonality we share has created a strong foundation within us that is fueled by passion, creating an internal drive to protect it. In my role of chair I will take this foundation that has been created and do my best to fulfill our mission statement of protecting our ocean, waves, and beaches.

Swellebration a Huge Success!

We couldn’t be more stoked on the dedication to the protection and enjoyment of our beaches that all of our wonderful volunteers have given us in 2014! Our first annual  black tie and baggies Swellebration was a huge success, and focused on giving back and thanking everyone for all of their hard work and support! We presented awards to Couch Distributing (19 years of sponsoring our Save the Surf program), and our Ocean’s Roar Recipient David Dennis.

Film Screening – ‘El Mar, Mi Alma” – Dec 9th

We are super stoked to be invited to table this film! A visual love song to the surf blessed land of Chile and the ocean that defines it.

With a long and diverse coastline Chile is a country not only shaped by its geography; the sea occupies a mystical and poetic, conscious and unconscious place within the cultural fabric of the nation.

Jack O’Neill Talks About Serious Issue at Cowell Beach

We are super stoked that our Chapter leader and Education Coordinator Amber Jones was able to sit down  with Jack O’Neill to talk about the serious water quality issue at Cowells Beach.  This is Cowells Beach’s fifth consecutive year of being on the Heal the Bay’s Beach Bummer List. This year it earns the title of California’s No. 1 most polluted beach. How can Santa Cruz  be known for it’s beaches and surf and have the state’s number 1 polluted beach?
