Pioneer Waterman John Kelly: Protecting Oceans, Surf, Coast with Save Our Surf

September 3, 2010


Created on the South Shore of Oahu, in 1961 John Kelly founded Save Our Surf.  SOS is considered by many to be the first grassroots nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving local beaches and surf breaks.  Over the years SOS has saved over 140 surf sites from destruction and brought awareness to the fragile balance of our ocean’s ecosystems.  A true waterman, John Kelly sparked global concern among surfers and environmental enthusiasts to protect the ocean, surf, and coast.
