As the first handboard/handplane makers to be a part of SIMA, we are proud to take part in the annual Waterman’s Weekend. Slyde has donated two of our favorite boards (a woody and a wedge pro) to the cause and the silent auction to be held on the second day of the event. As I'm sure you are aware, if you have read any of our other posts, we are very active and passionate in helping the various organizations that help in keeping the ocean the way it should be: natural and pure. We are hoping this, in some small way, helps in that cause.
“The annual Waterman’s Weekend has served as the main fundraising source for the SIMA Environmental Fund since its inception. Waterman’s Weekend is a two-day fundraising event held each August that exclusively benefits the SIMA Environmental Fund, a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation that awards grants to various environmental groups based on their dedication to preserving and protecting the world’s oceans, beaches and waves. The weekend event begins with the Waterman’s Classic Golf Tournament, featuring a lively day on the links, a surf contest, and live and silent auctions. The Waterman’s Ball and Auction reigns as the main event, which not only allows the surf industry and friends of the environment to raise money for important oceanic causes, but also honor and celebrate those making significant contributions in the industry with the prestigious annual Waterman of the Year, Environmentalist of the Year and Lifetime Achievement awards.”
Below is the woody handboard and flame head pro-wedge auction items for the Waterman’s Silent Auction.
