State of the Beach Report

The Surfrider Foundation State of the Beach report is our continually-updated assessment of the health of our nation’s beaches. It is intended to empower concerned citizens and coastal managers by giving them the information needed to take action. For ten years we have been collecting information on beach access, surf zone water quality, beach erosion, erosion response, beach fill, shoreline structures, beach ecology and surfing areas to get an understanding of the condition of our nation’s beaches.
