Not to name drop, but how cool is it that so many artists, rockers, actors, and models are all associated with surfing? Heck, in the spirit of the moment we'll even give Mathew McConoughey a pass to SUP at the 'Bu. Surfrider Celebrates is 25th Anniversary tonight with its Gala and Art Auction at the Wallis Annenberg Building, California Science Center in LA.
Hard to believe its been 25 years since a crew of surfers got together the idea of a "party with a conscience." And it's because of the Surfrider Foundation that most of us have a ecological and social awareness that we bring beyond our surfing experience.
This is the way it's been from the beginning with Surfrider. Who can forget Curren and Rabbit singing alongside Gregory Harrison on the Wavesliders Benefit CD back in '90?
Tonight's bash will be hosted by Mark Hoppus and will run in conjunction with the third annual Art for the Oceans Auction, wherein twenty five of the biggest names in the contemporary art world have donated their interpretations of twenty five of the world's most magical surf spots.
The VIP tickets are gone, but there's still a few general admission tix left. Now, where did I put my good gala shoes?
