Aloha and Welcome to the Surfrider Foundation O‘ahu Chapter.

Our mission is centered on the protection and enjoyment of our  island’s (world’s) Ocean, Beaches, & Waves through a powerful activist network. Our Near Shore Ecosystems in Hawai‘i are the life blood of the people and way of life  and thus preserving public access and water quality in these amazing resources into the future is of vital importance. Our organization is fueled by you – our amazing volunteer grassroots activist network!

HIC Pro Beach Cleanup

On November 3rd Join Surfrider O‘ahu and HIC – Hawaiian Island Creations for our annual November cleanup at the James Campbell Wildlife Refuge in Kahuku. The refuge is a protected area managed by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that while preserved from development is under constant threat from heavy loads of marine debris. Last year our team of volunteers cleared 10,000 lbs of debris from the shores that surrounded monk seals and wetland/seabirds.
