sea-roots organisation dedicated to the protection
of Australias waves and beaches through Conservation,
Activism, Research and Education or C.A.R.E.
Purpose is to protect oceans, waves and beaches through
Mission & Vision is to inspire an engaged surfing
and coastal community who are passionate about protecting
oceans, waves and beaches.
little over 30 years ago, three passionate surfers
in Malibu, California, found out that their favorite
wave was about to be destroyed. Those three people
worked with their local community and Government until
they were satisfied that their iconic wave would be
preserved. This was the genesis of Surfrider Foundation
USA, which sparked a global movement of surfers and
ocean enthusiasts to stand up for their coasts and
local marine environments.
the Surfrider Foundation movement has grown to 18
countries around the world.
Foundation Australia (SFA) was founded in 1991, largely
in response to poor water quality issues along Australia's
east coast. Local surfers, being at the forefront
of water quality, began recruiting volunteers for
a series of demonstrations and actions to persuade
decision makers to take action on this ongoing issue.
The group has been working hard to protect Australias
coastlines ever since.
its humble beginnings and as we approach our 29th
year of operation, SFA has grown to over 18 volunteer
branches and many more volunteer beach representatives
tackling local and national coastal environmental
issues at a sea-roots level around Australia.
times of uncertainty, it hasnt been easy. Theres
still a lot of work to be done. Our work is critical.
And our long-term success and growth is a tribute
to our founders vision: that taking on an environmental
battle may not be easy, but with constant pressure,
endlessly applied, it can, and will, be won. The key
to this is what makes our organization unique. (Surfrider
