Coastal Bend Chapter

Chapter Officers

The Surfrider Foundation is a non-profit grassroots organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of our world’s oceans, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network. There are 80 chapters and 100 youth clubs in the Surfrider network.

The Texas Coastal Bend Chapter’s impact is largely made possible by the work of incredible volunteers on our Executive Committee and in our volunteer network.

Executive Committee

The Surfrider Texas Coastal Bend Chapter Executive Committee (EC) is our volunteer-based Board of Directors. The EC is made up of core volunteers who are dedicated to the Surfrider mission. They give an incredible amount of hours and are the decision-making foundation for the chapter. Board terms are two years and are elected positions.
