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!
