Surfrider Foundation filed a lawsuit in 2004 over blocked beach access points in Ponte Vedra. The suit sought a judgment that the county was "obstructing and preventing beach access in Ponte Vedra." In March 2006 it was announced that Surfrider had prevailed in this lawsuit.

The First Coast Chapter, along with several other Surfrider Foundation chapters in Florida, are interested in establishing a comprehensive set of laws to protect citizen's access to public beaches. They have drafted a Florida Open Beaches Act that they hope to have adopted by the Florida legislature.
