The Huntington/Seal Beach Surfrider Chapter operates solely on donations and fundraising. The Chapter always has issues and programs requiring funds to operate. Chapter Board Members are volunteers, working to protect our oceans, waves and beaches for everyone through Conservation, Activism, Research and Education (CARE).
Surfrider Foundation was founded in 1984 by Glenn Henning, Tom Pratte and other Malibu surfers who were concerned about the possible loss of their favorite surf break. Over the years Surfrider has grown to be one of the premier grassroots environmental groups fighting to preserve our precious coastal zone, we are “Keepers of the Coast”.
Our HB/SB Chapter was formed in 1989 as the Long Beach Chapter and absorbed Seal Beach and Huntington Beach because of no representation. In late 1998 the Chapter split to be the Huntington/Seal Beach Chapter we are today, leaving the Long Beach Chapter to concentrate on the Long Beach Breakwater issue.
