SurfAid International USA, Inc.
Surfaid is a non-profit humanitarian organisation whose aim is to improve the health, wellbeing and self-reliance of people living in isolated regions connected to us through surfing. As surfers travel to isolated locations around the world, it is our duty to look out for the well-being of those people who so gratefully offer their land, culture, and barrels.

Save the Waves Coalition
Save The Waves Coalition is a global nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting and preserving the coastal environment, with an emphasis on the surf zone, and educating the public about its value. Some of the best surf locations have vanished forever because of coastal developments. Getting involved with Save the Waves is a strategic way to protect coastal regions in the world that are facing a similar fate. Website: www.savethewaves.org
Sustainable Surf seeks to help transform the surf industry and community from its current unsustainable operating model to a global model of sustainability in action. Surfers must be educated about lifestyle choices they can make to lower their impact on the ocean and environment. Sustainable Surf works in partnership with key players within the surfing industry to help spread these campaigns.
