Miami Chapter

The Surfrider Foundation is a non-profit grassroots organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of our world’s oceans, waves and beaches. The Miami chapter was started by Wyatt Porter Brown and T.C over 10 years ago. Though there have been rough times, we’ve been growing ever since!

May 15: Wave forecasting expert to speak at Surfrider Community meeting

Thursday, May 15, 7-9:15 PM

Miami Beach Botanical Garden

Alex Gibbs, Senior Forecaster with the National Weather Service, will speak at our community meeting this month. Gibbs posseses a keen understanding of and passion for nearshore wave modeling.

This will be a treat for the hard-core surf community, the amatuer wave forecasters among us (where’s Pete Ferrer?) and the public safety community since Gibb’s talk will include rip current dynamics.

Surfrider will also update the community on key initiatives, activism options, serve pizza & beer and flash some hot surf footage on the screen.
