Cleanup Strike Teams

Welcome to our Strike Team beach cleanup page. Strike Team cleanups are currently offline now that we’ve resumed our monthly public cleanups. For any questions, email beachcleanups@surfridersd.org

Strike Team Safety Guidelines

  • Be responsible! If you are feeling sick, have symptoms consistent with COVID-19, or have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, it is required that you not attend a Surfrider event, and recommended that you stay home, away from other people and consult your medical provider.
  • If you are NOT vaccinated, please wear a mask or cloth face covering for the duration of the cleanup, per CDC recommendations.
  • Do not touch your face, eyes or mouth at any point during the cleanup. Avoid touching any public surfaces (handrails, benches), but if necessary, use hand sanitizer if you touched a surface and have yet to put on your gloves.
  • You will be required to sign a liability waiver. If you are under 18 and your parent/legal guardian will NOT be present, please print this waiver, have your parent/legal guardian sign it, and bring with you. 

Important Considerations for YOU to Know: 

  • Each cleanup will be limited to 50 (or less, depending on location) volunteers. Please DO NOT bring anyone who has not signed up. 
  • Our volunteer Strike Teams specifically cater to individuals, families and friends. They are NOT designed for groups, companies, or other organizations. Please email beachcleanups@surfridersd.org separately for any group requests. 
  • Because we’re operating under strict group size limits, please email beachcleanups@surfridersd.org if you need to cancel. This will allow another volunteer to take your spot. 
  • We will NOT be setting up a Surfrider canopy so pay close attention to the meetup location – for each cleanup, your Site Captain’s cell # will be provided in case you can’t find us! 
  • We recommend comfortable clothes, closed toed shoes, a hat and sunscreen. Bring your own reusable bag or bucket and gardening or work gloves if you have them – otherwise, we got you covered.
