Oregon Fall Beach Cleanup Big Success!

Great job by all of our beach captains and volunteers for coming out for this year's SOLV Fall Beach Cleanup. Did you know that this twice a year event was the first ever statewide volunteer event for beach cleanups? The world’s first statewide volunteer beach cleanup was held on October 13, 1984, under the title “Plague of Plastics”...read more. For this year's event this past Saturday, over 40,000 pounds of garbage and nearly 4,000 volunteers showed up for the effort along the 360 miles of coastline in Oregon. Check out some of the highlights from the sites in Zone 7 on the central coast . Surfrider Foundation chapters and volunteers across Oregon stepped up this year captaining 8 sites from Cannon Beach to Florence. Great work team!

The Perfect SoCal Summer of 2008

What a perfect summer it's been here in Southern California near Surfrider HQ. Frequently good surf, consistently delicious weather, decent beach water quality, warm ocean water, and almost no red tide to speak of -- it doesn't get any better than that!
