Smith and Reid have sat on the honorary board for Project Save Our Surf since 2012.

Past celebrities in attendance to Project Save Our Surf fundraisers include Corey Feldman, Daryl Hannah, Kyle Massey, Bai Ling, Drake Bell, Rachel McCord and many more.
Actress, writer, and producer Tanna Frederick founded Project Save our Surf in 2008. She is an active surfer and environmentalist who works vigorously to bring both the entertainment and surf industries together in support of clean oceans.
This marks Project Save Our Surf’s 7th clean up event and first fundraiser of the year. “It’s a special time for me celebrating my birthday to raise funds and participation for the organization I love so much,” says Frederick. “We’ve had some tough times recently but now were growing again and have expanded our clean ups to include Huntington Beach and looking forward to returning to Vietnam where we have provided water filters so the residents can have access to clean water.”
Project Save Our Surf is a 501c3 organization dedicated to the conservation of our oceans, fresh water and the delicate marine ecosystems that reside therein. Surfers, celebrities, friends, families and businesses come together to help preserve and strengthen our planet. They believe that through education, awareness outreach and physical involvement, we can generate significant change to our environment.
