The Grand Strand Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation is joining in one of the world’s largest gatherings to promote clean energy. In conjunction with the first Surfrider Surf-Off this Saturday, May 18, members of Surfrider will come together from across the Grand Strand and link hands on the beach as a display against dirty fuels.
Come out to the 2nd Annual Surf Skate Expo and Seafood Taco Cookoff, Sunday March 10th, between Dockside and Creek Ratz. Last year went great and this year should be better, come out and learn about the local surf/skate culture. See local artist and skaters, see who makes the best seafood taco, listen to live music and meet local surf shop owners.
In keeping with our ongoing campaign, we’ve completed a compelling video for Surfrider’s marine trash awareness.
Many thanks to Paulphin Photography for the generous use of their dolphin footage.
At long last, the Surfrider-proposed shower towers are up at locations in Garden City Beach and Surfside Beach. Thanks to careful collaboration with the respective county officials and with support from Village Surf Shoppe, the long-time-coming project is finally completed. We wish a fun, easy, family- and environmentally-friendly time at the beach for all!
