The Florida Board Riders is pleased to announce the formation of a grassroots organization meant to brighten the future of surfing in beach communities in the Sunshine State.

Just as Florida homes are built on strong foundations, the Florida Board Riders will build off the rich history and legacy of surfing in the state. The Florida Board Riders is already working with partners in surf communities throughout the state to establish local chapters. Each club will carry out various mission-aligned events, including contests, charitable drives, beach cleanups, ocean conservation education, water safety training, surf movie nights, and more.
The culmination of these efforts will be the 2020-2021 Florida Board Riders Competition series, which will pit clubs from all across the sunshine state in a team format surf contest. Each club will be represented by the best surfers in all age groups from their respective area.
The Florida Boardriders is a nonprofit organization with a 501 c 3 status. Funds collected by the organization through member dues, partnerships, and donations will be distributed to member clubs to facilitate the main functions of the Florida Board Riders in their local area.
