Virginia Beach Chapter

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. Founded in 1984 by a handful of visionary surfers in Malibu, California, Surfrider Foundation now maintains over 50,000 members and 90 chapters worldwide.


Welcome to the Surfrider Foundation Virginia Beach Chapter website! Each chapter is individually managed and run by local volunteers. The Virginia Beach Chapter has produced a positive impact on our community through a dedicated group of like-minded individuals who hold regular monthly beach cleanups, educational events, fundraisers and fun social events!

We have also initiated numerous campaigns and programs, including water quality testing, preserving beach and surfing access, reducing cigarette litter on the beach, and reducing the impact of plastics on our local waterways. If you are interested in volunteering, please visit our Events or Local Campaigns page.
