Nearly 400 attendees - business leaders, celebrities and surfing legends - will gather at a prestige evening dedicated to collecting funds for proven ocean environmental and charitable groups.

More than 120,000 Euros have already been raised since the creation of the Waterman’s Ball and supported associations such as: Surfrider Foundation Europe, Surfers Against Sewage, Surfeurs Sans Frontières, Surfeurs Solidaires, Surf Insertion, Vagdespoir...

It will also be an appropriate opportunity to render homage to legendary international surf personalities and honour the winners of the EuroSIMA Innovation Competition. Between Atlantic ocean and channel, in a setting of traditional Basque and Landes architecture, the Hossegor Sporting Casino will welcome this year the annual surf industry gala dinner and fundraiser.

Organized by EuroSIMA (European Boardsports Industry Manufacturers Association), the Waterman’s Ball will take place on Friday, September 28, 2007, in a laid back environment of friendship and pleasure.
