Billabong's Design for Humanity

On Thursday night, Billabong unleashed one of the biggest (and arguably best) surf industry functions in recent history on the New York streets of Paramount Studios in Hollywood. Reminiscent of an alcohol-infused high school Grad Night, it was an evening spent amid a sea of humans that flew by in a rapid succession of activities—live artists demonstrations, a performing dance troop, a florescent-inspired bikini fashion show, silent auctions to benefit the Invisible Children charity, as well as live musical entertainment by Fischerspooner and multiple DJs. All in all, a lovely night for a good cause. For more pics from the event, see the September issue of SURFER.
