Surfers Without Borders is a humanitarian aid organization dedicated to creating Projects that Teach Environmental Awareness, Reduce Ocean Pollution, Promote Sustainable Development, and Foster Good Relations between Surfers and Coastal Communities around the world.


Surfers Without Borders believe that a dedicated group of individuals can change the course of environmental destruction and cultural intolerance.  We serve as ambassadors for an ever growing, global group of concerned athletes and activists.

The Need

Ocean pollution is reaching an all time high.  Plastic and agricultural chemicals mix with human waste and heavy metals to form a toxic brew; one that we as surfers bathe in as often as possible, and one that provides food for many Coastal Communities.

The Solution

All environmental issues facing the world today are the result of poor design.  We can grow food without toxic chemicals.  We can provide clean drinking water inexpensively.  We can utilize waste as a resource.

Our Work

We work within the context of a local community’s needs and resources.  First, we begin community outreach in order to gain the trust of the locals.  We then investigate the specific needs of that community, and create projects that provide positive solutions that are simple and long-lasting.
