Ocean Beach Pier


Our largest awareness event of the year, the Paddle for Clean Water sends participants out on surf boards, SUP’s, and boogie boards around the 1,971 ft pier (the longest concrete pier in the world).  We bring awareness to the community about the Surfrider Mission and the future of our oceans, waves and beaches.


With nearly 70 miles of coastline to protect, the Surfrider Foundation San Diego County Chapter is one of the largest and most active chapters in the world.  We are a grassroots organization, which means the people working to protect our local oceans, waves and beaches are volunteers who care about San Diego and want to make a difference.

Globally, Surfrider is involved in a variety of programs aimed at protecting our coastal ecosystems, based on the parameters outlined in our mission statement. Our campaigns and programs are developed to support our strategic goals and initiatives: Clean Water, Beach Access, Beach Preservation, and Protecting Special Places.
