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

Cafes getting on board with Surfrider’s Rubbish 4 Coffee

Manly cafes have come up with a clever solution to the beach’s pollution problem – bribing would-be cleaners with free coffee.

Become Ocean Friendly

An exciting new programme to encourage cafes, restaurants, markets and festivals to ditch the single-use plastic habit and source local and sustainable foods.

Help Save Martha's Break

Surfrider Foundation Australia is actively protesting against a possible Salmon Farm that will negatively impact the quality of the Martha Lavinia surf break on King Island.

Australia’s newest waves in danger are at YAMBA, ‘THE FARM’ & GOOLAWAH. At a quick glance around the country.., The Great Australian Bight is one step closer to risky drilling, Stockton Beach is literally disappearing before our eyes, an ominous stillness in the waters around Martha Lavinia & an indicative design released for the South Newcastle Beach skate park. Amongst these and other important fights, stand up for your wave with Surfrider.

SYDNEY, Australia — The “paddle out” is surfing’s most hallowed ritual, a floating memorial ceremony in which mourners join hands and reminisce at sea.

From heading to King Island in Tasmania opposing a proposed Salmon Farm just around from Martha Lavinia, to picking up tonnes of left over waste in the national park surrounding Double Island Point as a result of overuse, to standing on the beach in South Newcastle where a skate bowl is proposed to be built...on the beach!
