Our Mission

The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network.

THE CHARLOTTE CHAPTER implements new campaigns that not only improve the lives of Charlotteans, but ultimately improve the purity of the world’s oceans.  This is achieved because of the connection between North Carolina’s local lakes to the oceans.

The Surfrider Foundation headquarter’s staff of nearly 50 people help support our chapter network in their campaigns, champion for policy and fight legal battles for our coasts, bring awareness to the issues facing our ocean, provide critical support on stuff like accounting, technology, and HR, and raise money to make all of this happen. We have an appetite for adventure and we all share a common passion – we love and appreciate our ocean, waves and beaches.
