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 O’ahu Chapter is one of the most active chapters in the Surfrider network.
With only two staff across the State of Hawai’i, Surfrider’s work is largely made possible by the work of incredible volunteers on our Executive Committee and Core Volunteer network.
Because the O’ahu Chapter is one of the most active in the country, it is supported by a Chapter Coordinator (one of only a handful in the country) and a Hawai’i Regional Manager, supporting all four chapters in Hawai’i.
The Surfrider O’ahu 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.
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.
