Happy Monday! We apologize for the delay in water quality results, but are happy to announce that the water remains clean in the Isla Vista area! We hope everyone got to enjoy the beautiful weather this past weekend and thank you to everyone who made it to our beach cleanup yesterday.

United States and Oceans of America

We are the United States and Oceans of America. Clean water and healthy beaches are vital to coastal communities, ocean recreation and people’s livelihoods. But plastic, offshore oil drilling, water pollution and sea level rise are threatening this precious resource. We all have a responsibility to protect our ocean for future generations.

Surfrider x Sanuk Beach Cleanup

Our IV Surfrider team joined forces with our friends at Sanuk for a day filled with sunshine and smiles. We began the day with a beach cleanup followed by a water quality testing run through done by our Blue Water Task Force right at our local spot Devereux and the “2 Miles of Smiles”!

Blue Water Task Force: Water Quality Update

After Wednesday’s rain event Depressions and Goleta Pier have medium levels of bacteria, while the rest of the sites are exhibiting clean water. Even so the state advises that you stay out of the water for at least 72 hours after a rain event, especially the first of the season. Bacteria on the land will build up over long periods before entering the ocean as run off, which is why it’s important for us to put the effort into maintaining a clean Isla Vista. Come join us for our first beach clean up of the season on October 14th from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM and enjoy the coming swell!
