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.

What’s On

The Gold Coast Surfrider Foundation has announced its fourth annual Eco Challenge Festival to be held on Saturday 1st April at Tweed Heads & Coolangatta (Greenmount) Surf Living Saving Club.

Surfrider Foundation Eco Challenge Gold Coast is a family friendly, sustainable, solar powered, plastic free, community, surfing lifestyle fundraising event which raises much needed funds for the Gold Coast ocean & beaches conservation organisation.

In June 2016, CSIRO, Tangaroa Blue and Bush Blitz, along with Surfrider and other environmental organisations, embarked on a 12-day journey to tackle marine debris and to collect research on the species that inhabit the Coral Sea Commonwealth Marine Reserve. In just 12 days, over 2.2 tonnes of rubbish was removed from the remote islands of the Great Coral Sea.
