Why Sign?

The Surfrider Foundation, as part of the global coalition of wave protection NGOs, is joining SAS in calling for 100,000 signatures to protect surfing waves. Sewage, litter and offshore developments are threatening to kill our waves. Sign our petition to save them.

The aim of the Protect Our Waves petition is to generate at least 100,000 signatures to highlight the value of surfing waves and locations to government and encourage debate of legislation in order to recognise the importance of waves as a cultural, social, economic and environmental asset to coastal communities.

We believe that waves and surf spots deserve to be seen as part of our heritage and should be afforded greater recognition and protection through debate and legislation.

By signing the Protect Our Waves petition: "I am calling on the government to debate the economic and intrinsic value of surfing waves and beaches, and produce specific legislation to protect these unique, finite assets for this and future generations."
