Join Committee for Green Foothills and the Surfrider Foundation’s San Mateo County Chapter to exercise your right to public access. With the recent lawsuit from Vinod Khosla wanting to restrict access, we want to raise our voices and enjoy this cherished beach. Representatives from Committee for Green Foothills and the Surfrider Foundation will provide a brief update while we enjoy a beach picnic followed by a beach clean up. Bring a blanket or beach chair and a bag lunch. We will provide drinks and clean up materials. All those who love Martin’s Beach or just want to learn more are welcome!
If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a grassroots organization fighting for the protection and enjoyment of our ocean, waves and beaches, the Surfrider Foundation relies on EPA programs and regulations to ensure that the water that flows down to the beach is clean and free from pollution, and that beachgoers have the information they need to avoid getting sick at the beach. EPA regulations and the research the agency supports are also critical as our country and planet face the challenges of climate change, and coastal communities deal with changing weather patterns and rising sea levels. Please join us to save the EPA’s ability to meet it’s mission of protecting public health and clean water! Learn more.

The film is a documentary about the challenges and triumphs of female big wave surfers fighting sexism in the water, in competition, in the media and in the surf industry.
