The Surfrider Foundation is a non-profit grassroots organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of our world’s oceans, waves and beaches. Founded in 1984 the Surfrider Foundation now maintains over 50,000 members and 90 chapters worldwide.   The DC Chapter represents residents from the greater Washington, DC, area, including western Maryland and Virginia.  It naturally draws coastal transplants who have found themselves landlocked, as well as river- and bay-oriented natives. 

• Join Surfrider Today! 

Because of our location amidst lawmakers, the chapter’s efforts include legislative agendas as well as river/bay clean-ups and public education.   Most importantly, we realize that despite physically being hours from the nearest beach, our actions locally can significantly affect the health of the coast, the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers, the Chesapeake Bay, and the rest of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
