Protect Beaches, Promote Beach Safety, Education and History of Board Sports

Supporting Programs & Events that Protect Florida’s Beaches

 

East Coast Surfing Hall of Fame legend, Ron DiMenna, grew his love of the ocean and the sport of surfing into a casual Florida lifestyle that celebrates beach culture.

Together with his wife, Lynne, they created Surfing’s Evolution & Preservation Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization that supports organizations with likeminded missions to protect the health of Florida’s beaches and address issues such as coastal pollution and beach ecology.

Through the sale of the Endless Summer® specialty license plate, the Foundation financially supports meaningful programs, events and activities that impact protection of the beaches for future generations to enjoy. The sale of the Endless Summer® plate will also fund the proposed Surfing’s Evolution Experience™.

Preserving the History of Surfing

The proposed “Surfing’s Evolution Experience“ is a future project planned to be located in Cocoa Beach that will use an immersive sensory experience to tell the story of surfing and how it gave birth to other board sports.
