We're engaged to protect what we love: oceans, waves and beaches. We are a grassroots non-profit environmental organization made up of beach-goers, surfers, divers, water-lovers, kayakers, moms, dads, kids, teens and anyone else who cares about the health of the oceans. We are you. We do beach cleanups, educational presentations, event boothing, and we get together to discuss issues that matter to our community and best of all- throw fun parties. Join us for any or all of the above. All welcome!
Brief Surfrider Membership Plug:
The bigger our Monterey Chapter membership, the more good things we can do for our beautiful slice of shoreline. Please consider becoming an official Surfrider Monterey Chapter member (makes a neat gift too):
We will not hold a BCU the 4th Sunday of December because our Captains will be away for the holidays, but if you have the time and inclination - might as well grab a bag and head down to your favorite beach and give it a little bit of your own Christmas love :-)
Next official one will be in January - the WHALEFEST Beach Clean Up! Save the weekend, it's going to be a wonderful Whalefest this year, with family friendly booths and outstanding local experts giving fascinating talks, more to come on that.
We partner with Marine Life Studies for this BCU - come meet us at the Surfrider Booth on Fisherman's Wharf at 11am (not usual 10am), and we'll all walk to Wharf II together.
