The South Orange County Chapter covers the coast from Laguna Beach through San Onofre and has members who reside in all the cities of south Orange County. They were very active in their successful Save Trestles campaign to oppose extension of the Foothill Transportation Corridor, which would have passed through open space conservation areas, the inland portion of San Onofre State Park, and would have terminated near the world-famous Trestles surfing area.

Respect the Beach (RTB) is an award-winning coastal educational program that includes field trips, classroom lectures, handouts, video, and hands-on projects designed to coastal watershed processes, shoreline ecology and coastal areas stewardship to K-12 students and community groups. The Respect the Beach program is brought into classrooms by Surfrider members, who represent ocean environmentalism from the surfer's perspective, and who are role models that students can relate to. Other chapter programs and campaigns include Rise Above Plastics and beach access at Strands.
