Johannes is a native Pacific North Westerner who has come to the Seattle Chapter by way of the Olympic Peninsula. Now a long time Seattle resident, he spends a significant amount of time recreating on the Washington coast as well as our many inland waterways and mountains. As a long time member of the Surfrider Foundation Johannes has been quietly advocating for the protection of our waterways and sees this effort as a critical component to the continued economic growth and ecological health of our region.

We’ll see you Tuesday, August 16th at Bramling Cross in Ballard, 6:30-8:30PM for a cigarette litter survey and pickup. All are welcome!
In neighborhoods like Fremont and Capitol hill it is no surprise that the bustling nightlife leads to a hefty amount of cigarette butt litter every morning. The burden of cleaning it up usually falls on business owners, who have to sweep the sidewalks day after day. However, both Red Star Taco bar in Fremont and Rockbox in Capitol Hill have teamed up with Surfrider Seattle by installing a Surfrider cigarette canister outside their business to both keep their sidewalks clean and help to prevent cigarette litter from reaching local beaches.
International Surfing Day is just around the corner! Join us next week, June 22nd, for our annual fiesta at Urban Surf. Always a good time featuring a SUP race on lake Union, demo boards, beverages, raffle, and more. We will be kicking it off at 5:30 and running strong til 9 so drop on in and celebrate our ocean, waves and beaches with the Seattle chapter. For any questions, please contact the chapter.
Tonight is our Swill ‘n Swell Spring Bash from 6-9pm at Stoup Brewing with Stoup generously providing a dollar from every pint sold at the event to help support the chapter and our urban runoff campaign. We’ll be showing surf flicks, enjoying tasty beverages, and holding a raffle with some great items so drop on in, admission is free!
