One Watershed

Sharing What We Love


One Watershed is a beach access equity initiative that brings youth from underrepresented communities in LA County to their local beach for surfing lessons from our partners at Aqua Surf School, fun in the sun, and conversations in community watershed conservation. Anchored in the enjoyment element of Surfrider’s mission, One Watershed works to engender a sense of belonging for participants, and an understanding that the beach belongs to everyone regardless of who you are, where you come from or how you identify yourself.


Creating Impact

If you’ve seen Surfrider’s Cycle of Insanity, you know our broken relationship with the natural world is threatening everything from urban communities to global marine ecosystems.

For better or worse, no matter where we live, our actions impact our environment and the communities we live in every day.

Each day presents an opportunity to contribute something positive to the world. We are all interconnected. We are one watershed.

During our 2021-2022 season, we introduced over 150 participants to the sport of surfing.
