Surfrider Foundation is headquartered in San Clemente, California. We have two local staff in Hawaiʻi working on a full-time basis to further the Surfrider mission and help support our chapter programs and campaigns. Below is a little bit about them, the committees that they serve on, and their contact information.
Keili McEvilly, Oʻahu Chapter Coordinator
Keili started her path to sustainability growing up as an eco-conscious surfer in Carlsbad, California. Spending summers with her family on Kauaʻi, she felt called to do work with KUPU, a conservation and sustainability-focused non-profit. It lit a spark in her that led her to pursue environmental research in Hawaii, study abroad in Thailand, and complete a BS degree in biology at Hawaiʻi Pacific University. Finding talent for connecting well with others, Keili found herself working on the Sales and Marketing team for Red Bull, Honolulu. When she isnʻt working you can usually find her surfing, freediving, spearfishing, gardening, hiking, or attempting something new! She is hoping to leverage her love for the ʻāina and background in sustainability to encourage a sense of community throughout SF and help make living a sustainable life more accessible for all!
