Beyond the Surface's mission is to 'build social-ecological resilience through surfing, storytelling, and mindfulness workshops.' The organisation works in several locations around the world, promoting the ocean. For example, in Peru their aim is to support marginalized artisanal fishing communities, starting with local young people, by hosting workshops in schools and fishing villages along Peru's coast to promote ocean literacy and policy engagement, and share scientific information. BTSI has run/runs programmes in Africa (Morocco, South Africa), Asia (Vietnam, Indonesia), Central America and South America (Peru).
