The Charlotte Chapter joined forces with My Aloha Paddle & Fitness and HKTK to clean up the Neck Road access on Mountain Island Lake this past Sunday. The group picked up just over 40 pounds of garbage, most recyclable on the sunny afternoon.
Join us Sunday, October 27th at the Neck Road Boat Ramp on Mountain Island Lake as we celebrate Rise Above Plastics month with a fun, family friendly clean up. Partnering with My Aloha Paddle & Surf, we will begin at 2 PM.
Did you know PLASTIC is the most common type of marine litter worldwide? The amount of plastic produced from 2000-2010 exceeds the amount produced during the entire last century! Even more alarming, impacts of marine debris have been reported for 663 species and recent studies estimate that fish off the West Coast ingest over 12,000 tons of plastics a year. Now is the time to Rise Above Plastics. we can all make a difference. Join Surfrider or make a donation during the month of Ocober and receive 2 ChicoBag Halloween treat bags. Also, check out the Rise Above Plastics One Foot At A Time contest for a chance to win some cool stuff, even a Firewire surfboard.
I am extremely happy to welcome Jeffrey Lee as our newest member to the Executive Committee. Jeffrey is joining us as Secretary for the chapter!! Could’t be more stoked to have him on board with us. He already has some great ideas and ways we can continue to move this chapter forward.

After months of preparation, the day has finally come where there is now a Charlotte Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation! With a dedicated group of both surfers and non surfers, we are eager to get the Charlotte area involved in all the great things that the Surfrider Foundation has to offer. Even though we are an inland chapter, there are many things we can do right here in our own back yard to help protect the worlds beaches and oceans, as well as the many lakes and rivers we have right here. I encourage everyone to check out the rest of this website as well as the main Surfrider website for more information. Stay tuned for information about upcoming meetings and intitiatives. Numbers make the difference, and I hope to make this chapter a strong presence in our community.
