In a TED talk by Eric Liu entitled: “Why Ordinary People Need to Understand Power” – Liu asserts, “We need to make civics sexy again. As sexy as it was during the American Revolution or the Civil Rights Movement.” At Surfrider Oahu we agree that you getting involved in making decsions for our State is of the utmost importance for creating a world that we want to call home into the future.
Civics IS Sexy is a free to the public particpatory workshop promoting effective community engagement in the Hawai‘i State Legislature. The process of creating, following, and testifying on important issues in our society can be overwhelming, but the Surfrider Foundation’s Oahu Chapter, Hawai‘i Center For Food Safety, and Kokua Hawai‘i Foundation want to help you navigate these unfamiliar waters. Join us for a Saturday at the Capitol and we will walk you through the process with details on how to use the State’s legislative website, gather information through the public access room, and give in-person testimony in front of a panel of legislatures. You’ll also be able to connect with a wide variety of communities and organizations doing extraordinary work to make Hawai‘i a better place.
Join us for a day of inspiring guest speakers, interactive discussions, hands on training, and a free lunch for all participants.
Bring a laptop, tablet, or internet ready device to follow along!
The doors open for sign-in and networking at 9:30AM, with the event officially beginning at 10AM
- Hawaii State Capitol – 415 South Beretania Street. Room 325. Honolulu, HI 96813
Additionally, with our partnership, Permablitz is offering hundreds of dollars off the design course costs for Surfrider members… contact us for details and questions (again, see the flyer). Have a great day!”

He works with UH Sea Grant and is one the two most knowledgeable people in our area on coastal erosion, setbacks and policy. He is also a long time Surfrider member and has contributed to our chapter throughout the years.

Email your City Council Member a voice your support for Bill 40, a Bill to ban food vendors from the use of any polystyrene foam containers (aka Styrofoam). The Bill requires that all disposable food service containers must be made of compostable material that will break down into usable compost in a safe and timely manner without leaving any toxic residue.

Happy New Year to our Surfrider ohana – all our members, volunteers and partners. We are so grateful for all that you do to support Surfrider and we want to send a big Mahalo to all those that contributed to our many causes this year. We had some incredible successes and many memorable events. Some of our big accomplishments in 2013 include:
– After the Big Island banned smoking on its beaches and parks last year, the Oahu Chapter helped pass a bill to create Smoke-Free Beaches & Parks on Oahu, and now the Maui Chapter hopes to do the same.
– The Surfrider Quad Club at the University of Hawaii helped pass a ban on EPS foam food service products on its campus, and Oahu and the other chapters will be seeking to reduce the use of toxic EPS Foam products at the state and county levels.
– Statewide, the Hawaii Chapters helped repeal the bill creating the Public Lands Development Corporation (PLDC), a shadowy government agency that would have allowed private corporations to develop public land.
– Another fantastic John Kelly Awards fundraiser party! Check out our Facebook page to see pictures from the event!
Some of our ongoing campaigns include the fight for beach access at Laniakea, the ongoing cases that scrutinize the building of massive new hotels which violate Waikiki’s zoning laws for height, density and shoreline setback and support for the campaign to protect Kakaako from being overdeveloped without adequate infrastructure.
We are looking forward to another great year in 2014! We have many ongoing campaigns and many new ones to look forward to. We also wanted to recognize the hard work of this year’s Executive Committee as well as welcome the new members of the 2014 Executive Committee:
