For over 30 years, the Surfrider Foundation has been working tirelessly to protect the world’s oceans and beaches. Anyone living in Miami knows that our waters are precious and that every effort is needed to preserve and prolong its quality as much as possible. Aside from your usual string of beach and ocean cleanups, lectures, and workshops, Surfrider finds some creative ways to inspire, educate, and connect the community toward ocean health awareness in our backyard. Say, for example, a Polynesian-themed soiree for the books this Friday, November 15th.

That’s right! The non-profit organization is taking over Nikki Beach and turning it into a tropical Beach House escape you won’t soon forget, all in an effort to help our oceans. You’ll be dazzled by hula performers, an array of live music, Tahitian dancers, fire performers, visual installations by Mokibaby, ukulele musicians, DJs Lance-O and Santiago Caballero and more. In addition to thrilling performances and food and drinks, the event celebrates local environmental game changers Louis Aguirre, Christian de la Iglesias, Dara Schoenwald and David Doebler. Wash all of the magic down with some of Nikki Beach’s greatest sips and bites, all under the breeze of the palm trees from the comfort of your cabana.
Surfrider has found a perfect partner in the South Beach staple, Nikki Beach, which is celebrating 20 years as Miami Beach’s first luxury beach club, is a champion of environmental causes and recently joined Surfrider Foundation Miami’s Ocean Friendly Restaurant program. All proceeds from Surfrider Beach House benefit the Miami Chapter’s year-round championing of surf and sand throughout Miami-Dade County, including monitoring ocean health, advocating for ocean-friendly local business practices, beach cleanups, and ocean-friendly public policy change. This includes supporting the organization’s Blue Water Task Force (BWTF) water testing program.
