Surfrider Vancouver Island is part of a greater international organization of volunteers. The Surfrider Foundation was started over 25 years ago in Malibu, California, and since then has grown to more than 15 countries worldwide.

Surfrider Vancouver Island started in 2009, and is formed of a collection of like-minded Vancouver Island coastal inhabitants. No matter where we are originally from, we now call Vancouver Island home and are focusing on ways of protecting and preserving it into the future. It’s with this unbridled dedication of our volunteers that our chapter is able to exist and continues to flourish. We are surfers, paddlers, students, teachers, professionals, young and old. Together, we are working to keep Vancouver Island a special place.
