7th Annual SIMA Waterman’s Ball Underwriting Party

2011 Waterman of the Year Greg Long with Billabong USA President Paul Naude.

On Thursday, June 16, 2011 the Surf Industry Manufacturers Association (SIMA) hosted its 7th annual Waterman’s Weekend Underwriting Party at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel, California. The event raises funds to support the SIMA Environmental Fund, which benefits a group of 20 environmental organizations that address water quality issues, defend beaches and surf breaks, or provide education about clean ocean conservation.

Industry executives and athletes came out to support the event, which included a live auction of rare items—like court side Lakers tickets and a week’s stay at Billabong’s house on the North Shore. The auction raised thousands of dollars, which will be used to produce SIMA’s Waterman’s Weekend on August 11–12.

Here’s a photo gallery from the event:
