Surfrider Hilo believes in public beach access, a clean ocean, and supporting environmental efforts on the Big Island.
You can think about us with three concepts.
- Protection and enjoyment
We don’t want to put a velvet rope around a beach and tell people to keep off. We’re surfers, we’re beach goers, we’re watermen… We enjoy the coasts. We’re a user group.
- Oceans, waves and beaches
Think coastlines, we’re engaged with environmental issues that affect our coastlines.
- Powerful activist network speaks to how we go about this mission. We are a grassroots organization. We’re local in many coastal regions.
