The South Sound Chapter of Surfrider represents Tacoma, Westport and the surroundng southern Puget Sound region. The South Sound Chapter (SSC) meets at 7:00pm on the second Tuesday of each month at the Taqueria del Guadalajara in Tacoma. They are involved in several projects including the Blue Water Task Force, Respect the Beach, Rise Above Plastics and Snowrider. They also support and participate in annual events such as the Clean Water Classic at Westport.

2014 was a groundbreaking year for the South Sound Chapter in terms of growth and community involvement. The chapter began its monthly beach cleanups giving those who want to get outside and get their hands dirty for cleaner beaches that chance on a regular basis. The chapter also hosted several guest speakers, movies, a wonderful Interational Surfrider Day event, and expanded their Blue Water Task Force Program from two locations to six. On top of this has been their work on a Rise Above Plastics campaign working with the city with a goal of establishing a reusable bag ordinance in Tacoma.
