The latest weather forecast is calling for a strong chance of thunderstorms tomorrow morning, so in an abundance of caution, we are choosing to postpone our Hands Across The Sand Event. Please stay tuned for a make-up date!

But don’t worry, you can still oppose new offshore drilling, even in poor weather.
3. Call or write your federal reps to ask them to oppose new offshore drilling & seismic exploration.
4. Get involved with our  Surfrider Chapter.
5. Participate in ocean planning to establish protections for our marine environment. 
6. Donate today and help us protect our coasts from new drilling and seismic testing. 
7. Download our Defend Our Coasts Postcard and take a picture in front of your favorite beach.


For Hands Across the Sand this year, will be better than ever at the Hartford Approach (1900 N. Atlantic Ave, Daytona Beach, 32118, look for the Surfrider flags)…you don’t want to miss it!

We will meet on the beach at 10 am on Saturday, May 19 to do a beach clean up. We’ll reconvene at our tent around 11:30 to get ready to join hands at 12 pm for 15 minutes. Handmade signs opposing seismic testing/offshore drilling are welcome, see photos from our past events for ideas!

Visit Hands Across the Sand for more info about this movement but please realize this is not about politics, it is about protecting our coastal economies, oceans, marine wildlife, fisheries and our land environment!

A beach cookout will immediately follow at 12:30. Remember your reusable water bottles/cups. We will have hot dogs/veggie dogs and snacks. Feel free to bring a dish to share! Please also feel free to bring your own gloves or buckets for the beach clean up, although we will also have supplies available.

Note about parking: You can drive onto the beach at Hartford and there is limited parking available nearby. We encourage ride sharing and carpooling to this event.

You can view our Facebook event to RSVP.
