Charlotte Chapter

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 promotes the mission and values of the Surfrider Foundation to the Greater Charlotte area, by building a strong membership and chapter network. Additionally, we provide educational awareness around the issues that are detrimental to our coasts and waterways and partnering with coastal chapters during campaigns.

The Charlotte Chapter implements new campaigns that not only improves the lives of our residents and visitors, but ultimately improves the purity of the world’s oceans.  This is our passion largely in part due to the connection between Charlotte’s local lakes & rivers to the ocean.
