Event Details

On Saturday, Oct. 27, Surfrider Foundation – Maui Chapter invites you to its 3rd Annual Ocean Guardian Awards Gala. Ocean Guardians was founded as a way for Surfrider Maui to honor members of our community who go above and beyond to ensure clean, safe, and accessible oceans for current, and future generations.

This year we will celebrate Surfrider Maui’s accomplishments and honor our 2018 Ocean Guardians:

  • Zane Kekoa Schweitzer (Ocean Athlete)
  • Donna Brown (Community Member)
