Surfrider Foundation Australia

Surfrider Foundation Australia is a registered not for profit sea-roots organisation dedicated to the protection of Australia’s waves and beaches through Conservation, Activism, Research and Education C.A.R.E.

A little over 30 years ago, three passionate surfers in Malibu, California, found out that their favorite wave was about to be destroyed. Those three people worked with their local community and Government until they were satisfied that their iconic wave would be preserved. This was the genesis of Surfrider Foundation USA, which sparked a global movement of surfers and ocean enthusiast to stand up for their coasts and local marine environments.

Congrats Moore Street general for their Ocean Friendly certification!

Katie and her team have had sustainability at the forefront of what they do, since opening the shop in 2017. Supporting local growers and bakers, this little neighbourhood joint could not get any more community orientated! If you’re on the coal coast swing by and support the great work these guys are doing!
