The Ocean City Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation was formed to heighten the awareness of our residents and visitors for our fragile and beautiful environment. SRF through its initiatives, strives to enhance and safeguard, when and wherever possible our waves, dunes and beaches for the enjoyment of all - present and future.

The Ocean City Chapter joined with the Delaware and DC chapters to Save Herring Point in Delaware.

The chapter's Initiatives for 2008 were:

  • I Surf - I Vote
  • Please Leave Only Your Footprints
  • Hold On To Your Butts
  • Adopt Your Beach
  • Ha’awi Ho’ihi - Loa’a Ho’ihi” (Give Respect - Get Respect)
  • Respect The Beach
  • Scholarships
  • Aloha Garden & Northside Cleansweep
