For Our Oceans, Waves and Beaches.

With nearly 70 miles of coastline to protect, our chapter is one of the largest and most active in the world.  We are a grassroots organization, which means the people working to protect our local oceans, waves and beaches are volunteers who care about San Diego and want to make a difference.
