2017-2018 Executive Committee Members
(2 Year Terms)
On January 5 Surfrider Maui reconstituted its Board of Trustees for the next 24 months. Thank you and congratulations to all volunteers who have joined the Board to protect Maui’s ocean, waves, and beaches. On February 4 the Board held a retreat to set out priorities and plans for the coming year.
Chair : Andrew O’Riordan
Andrew O’Riordan started the Ivy League Surf Association in his years studying at Princeton University, and the Tigers defeated Harvard in the first event, the Fall Classic in Rhode Island. This was the pinnacle of his surfing career. He now teaches a number of subjects and students at Maui Preparatory Academy, and spends his time savoring Maui’s precious places and working to protect the incomparable beauty of this island.
Vice Chair & Ocean-Friendly Restaurants Coordinator : Robi Campbell
Robi Campbell provides the steady muscle at Surfrider’s monthly beach cleanups. She loves the NFL, she loves Maui, and she runs her own company, “bChill.”
Treasurer : Charlie Quesnel
Treasurer Charlie Quesnel is one of the old guard, a North Shore fixture, big-wave charger, and G-land Warrior. He runs the books as tightly as he threads the tube at Moneytrees. You will know him by the handlebars on his mustache.
Secretary : Magen Schifliti
The upcountry science nerd. I grew up in Chicago and decided to become a Marine Biologist at the age of 11. I traded in cold harsh winters, for sand, marine mammals, and surf. After completing my Master’s Degree from the University of Western Australia I moved to the Valley Isle to pursue my love of educating others about the ocean.
Volunteer Coordinator & Blue Water Task Force Coordinator: Mike Ottman
Mike’s day is complete only after family, friends, business and ocean are loved, our community has been enhanced, and a few good top-turns or barrel have been had.
