The NXT 50


The plaque pictured was a dedication placed in Seven Presidents Park, Long Branch New Jersey to recognize 50 years of an organizations contribution to surfing  and the community, we now look forward to the next 50. It's our time to give back with appreciation. Please do not think of this as only another charitable organization, we are driven by passion and dedication. 

This request is for your help and support to raise funds for Kiernan Surfing Association, a group committed to inspire conservation of our coastal environment, our oceans, welfare of animals in the wild, beaches and the surfing community. KSA is further dedicated to preserving and respecting KSA’s past, mentoring the future stewards of our environment,  promoting excellence in our community, while fostering a forward-looking,  positive image.


The funds raised are dedicated to the legal cost of forming a non-profit, Certified Charity, something that must be in place prior to moving forward.  We are 100% set knowing the costs involved including legal, web site, bandwidth and promotion of memberships. We will use Horbor Compliance, Lancaster, PA. a premier organization in setting up nonprofits.  

Sea Grass Plantings

KSA will collaborate with like charitable organizations sharing the same commitment. Our ability to generate funds should be substantial moving forward primarily due to our involvement with a highly intriguing sport. We have access to pro surfers, past members throughout the US,  globally as well as friends of KSA.

We will begin with our membership revenue and contribute to local events such as plastic clean-up and sea grass plantings. KSA recognizes other groups, clubs, and non-profits. As we grow are goal is to collaborate with these charitable organizations such as Surfer's Environmental Alliance, Native Fish Society, Clean Ocean Action, Orca Conservancy, Mote Marine Laboratory and our one humanitarian cause, the Alzheimer's Association.

ALZHEIMER'S, Our One Humanitarian Cause.

As we look back and reflect on our blessings, all KSA has given us and still feeling that passion and dedication,

 We Looked Back

 We Look Forward   

 The Future 


We  feel that passion and dedication, am committed to building KSA into a compassionate, forward-looking organization capable of giving back, with our team and your help this will happen.
As a contributor, looking forward into the eyes of the future stewards of our environment and community, please except our gratitude for your support. Please donate and share.  MAHALO
