This weekend a group of dedicated volunteers with @surfriderla participated in a National Summit in Irvine, CA, and met other chapters from around the world. It was a full weekend immersed in listening and learning from leaders in the field of activism, policy, business and environmental science, storytelling and more. As we celebrate our 35th year of Surfrider, (YEW! 🙌🏼) we strive to be the premier grassroots organization on the leading edge of volunteerism, inspiring progress through education, partnership, leadership and community engagement. Thanks to all of you who continue to dedicate your time and energy to our local chapter, to selflessly show up time and time again to give a voice to the ocean and everything in and around it. A simple summery from the weekend? We have a lot of work to do. And if you can’t show up to get your hands dirty, we get it, life is busy! An alternative is to become a member for only $25/year, as this is a HUGE way to help our local chapter. We are excited to take away the best practices and stories we heard this weekend and implement them into our Los Angeles chapter so we can continue to grow, thrive and end 2019 strong. Oh and a very special thanks to @shauntomson for all his work with @surfrider at its inception, and for the photobomb!!
💥BYO, YO! AB 619 SIGNED INTO LAW💥 AB 619 is a California statewide law that will now allow temporary food facilities at events to serve customers in reusable containers rather than single-use plastic. This bill also clarifies existing health code laws ensuring that the public can bring reusable containers to restaurants for take-out. Another major step in the source-reduction battle to fight single-use plastics! 📷: @re.laurenferree #BringYourOwn #Reusables #Tupperware #MasonJar #ToGoWare

There has been a lot of discussion about Malibu in the weeks since LA County Beaches & Harbors dropped a dozen 2-ton boulders on the beach to keep the historic Wall at First Point from slipping into the sea. While this emergency situation could've been avoided with proactive planning and resource management, it has served to catalyze the community around short and long-term solutions that we can all (mostly) agree upon. On July 8th, the Malibu City Council unanimously approved staff recommendations to issue an RFP (Request for Proposal) for a hydrological study of Malibu Lagoon and a coastal morphology study of Surfrider Beach. In addition, Council directed City staff to issue an LCPA (Local Coastal Plan Amendment) for a lagoon management plan. These are critical steps in what will be a long process to address chronic erosion at Surfrider Beach.

The Surfrider Foundation is dismayed that City and County officials have chosen to drop boulders on the beach at Malibu in order to protect a historic landmark from erosion at First Point. Emergency seawalls are inevitable without proactive planning to accommodate ongoing erosion and the impacts of sea level rise. Surfrider continues to advocate for soft beach nourishment solutions at the Adamson Estate and a seasonal management program to encourage flows to exit Malibu Lagoon to the west at Third Point. We are calling on all stakeholders to come to the table and develop short- and long-term sustainable solutions that protect the beach at Malibu. #malibu #erosion #surfriderbeach #seawall #adamsonhouse #malibulagoon #coastalarmoring #westisbest #livingshorelines #rindgedam #saveoursand #savemalibu #bringbackthebeach

BREAKING: As reported by the Wall Street Journal, the Department of Interior is delaying plans to expand offshore oil drilling in U.S. waters. While this news is encouraging — and signals that our voices are being heard — it does not change the fact that new offshore oil drilling is currently planned in over 90% of U.S. waters. We are calling upon the Trump administration to officially cancel all plans to revise the 5-year offshore drilling program and we need your help to continue the fight to defend our coasts. #DrillingIsKilling

Over 100 Surfrider Foundation members and coastal business leaders traveled to Washington D.C. this past week to meet with federal officials and discuss initiatives to protect our ocean, waves, and beaches. Participants visited 125 Senate and House offices to express our opposition to new offshore drilling as well as advocate for funding clean water programs and reducing plastic pollution. 〰️〰️〰️ Our coalition met with federal agencies, including White House officials, to call on the Trump Administration to cancel plans for new offshore drilling. During these meetings, Surfrider CEO Dr. Chad Nelsen and members of the Surf Industry Manufacturer’s Association (SIMA) presented officials with a surfboard and letter signed by over a thousand coastal businesses as symbol of solidarity against offshore drilling. #DrillingIsKilling #USOA (link in profile)
