Meet The Oʻahu Team

The Surfrider Foundation is a non-profit grassroots organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of our world’s oceans, waves, and beaches through a powerful activist network. There are 80 chapters and 100 youth clubs in the Surfrider network. The Oʻahu Chapter is one of the most active chapters in the Surfrider network. Surfrider’s work is largely made possible by the work of incredible volunteers on our Executive Committee and Core Volunteer network.

Meet Our Staff

Lauren Blickley

The O’ahu Chapter is supported by the Hawaiʻi Regional Manager who supports regional projects, programs, and our Surfrider Chapters in Hawaiʻi.

Executive Commitee

The Surfrider Oʻahu Executive Committee (EC) is our volunteer-based board. The EC is made up of core volunteers who are dedicated to the Surfrider mission. They give an incredible amount of hours and are the decision-making foundation for the chapter. EC terms are two years and are elected positions.

Committee Leadership

Surfrider O’ahu is made up of various programs and committees that are the heart of our organization. Our committee leads are all volunteers, who give their time to make our work successful.
