Description: There is no doubt that the price of water is going up, and will continue to climb. Joe will tap Surfrider’s “Know Your H2O” program and launch a discussion pivoting on this idea: “Given choices of how to respond to rising water costs for your business, what choices give you the greatest return on investment?” Come learn how your business community and the quality of life in our coastal communities will benefit from the choices we can start making now.

Joe Geever

Joe was born and raised in Los Angeles and learned to surf while in elementary school – the start of a lifetime relationship with the coast and ocean. He left high school before graduation and worked as a commercial fisherman during most of his early adulthood.

Later in life Joe quit fishing to finish his formal education, earning a Bachelors Degree in Economics and a Law Degreee – both from the University of Virginia. Joe swears he still plans to go back and get that high school diploma

Since then, Joe has devoted his professional career to the restoration and protection of our coasts and oceans.

Joe’s duties at Surfrider Foundation include assisting the organization’s all-volunteer chapters with legal and policy analysis, as well as development of Surfrider Foundation’s new “Know Your H2O” program.

Joe wants you to know that his reputation for being the worst surfer most people have ever seen – given how long he’s been at it – is unfounded. He knows one guy who is even clumsier on a surfboard than he is.
