Miami ChapterThe 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!
Saturday, April 26, 8:45 am – 1 pm
82nd Street Beach just West of beach dune at North Shore Open Space Park – meter parking on street
Surfrider Miami will be back in the dunes returning them to their healthy, natural state with a solid team of volunteers including employees of our guest corporate sponsor Metro 1, advocates for sustainable real estate solutions www.metro1.com who will be making a generous donation to the Chapter so we can continue our protection of oceans, waves and beaches.
Surfrider will supply all instruction, equipment, snacks, cold water, waivers and community service forms. Wear solid shoes, bring a refillable water bottle (we will NOT have any single use plastics on the beach) and sunscreen. Kids under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
After we’re done, time to jump in and cool down in the beautiful Atlantic Ocean!

SUPers are being called upon to get together for a beach cleanup and paddle on Saturday, Nov. 16th 2013 from 9am to 12pm! This will be no ordinary cleanup, instead we want you to help us get the trash out of the water while on your board! We will provide gloves and tools to help you with the efforts, while you rise and shine to the occasion. We will be meeting across the street from MAST Academy, look for the Surfrider banner!
Don’t forget to bring your trash collectors (net bags, baskets, etc) and, of course, reusable water bottles for your fill ups!
Surfrider is partnering with FIU’s Office of University Sustainability on Oct 16th and the Union of Concerned Scientists at the Miami Museum of Science on Oct 17th for special screenings of this important new documentary. Check out shoredupmovie.com and this flyer.
