ECOBOARD Project - Launch Party Nov 8th 2012


A Fundraiser for Sustainable Surf

Thursday November 8th
VIP Event - 6pm to 7pm
General Admission - 7pm to 10pm
501 York St San Framcisco, CA
Here’s what to expect at the event: 

Music, Local Sustainable Food & Drinks – Live DJ spinning beats, great local beer & wine from Berkley based Trumer Pils and others, and gourmet sustainable food truck fare available from Little Green Cyclo at the event.
Live Surfboard Glassing Demo – Come watch the pros from Entropy Resins and E-Tech Glassing as they transform the latest in sustainable, non-toxic, and recycled surfboard materials, into a visually stunning surfboard in front of the live crowd. If you have never seen how a surfboard is really made, you don’t want to miss this!
Meet-A-Shaper Booth – Pick the brains of leading local surfboard craftsman from Stretch Surfboards and others, about high performance board design, greener material choices (and even the usefulness of deck channels!). Become inspired to make your next surfboard a sustainable one, and order your new ECOBOARD Project “verified” surfboard right there at the event!
Silent Auction and Raffle – You’ll have a chance to win an amazing raffle package, and to bid on One of a kind silent auction items during the event. Featuring hot off the press ECOBOARD Project labeled boards from top board brands like LOST, FIREWIRE, Stretch, Timmy Patterson and Pearson Arrow, surf gear from Patagonia and others, and lots more.
Styrofoam drive – Bring us a chunk of your unwanted EPS (ie. “styrofoam) packaging foam to be recycled through our Waste to Waves program. EPS foam collected at the event will be kept out of the landfill and will get a shot at becoming a new, recycled surf blank from Marko Foam in it’s next life!
VIP Party – Spend an exclusive hour before the main event connecting with the movers and shakers at our VIP party. Enjoy great sustainable food and drink options sourced from our local Bay area, and get a special gift bag too.  Spots at the VIP event are very limited, so get those while they last!

Headlining all of this activity will be a stellar  panel of top thought leaders, entrepreneurs and change makers from businesses and organizations that are leading the charge to integrate the worlds of surf biz and sustainable biz. Listen in and ask questions as these leaders discuss their own sustainability initiatives, and how all these actions ultimately connect together in the ecosystem of the surfing culture. With Saatchi & Saatchi S’s own head surfer Adam Werbach moderating the panel, we expect a lively debate about the role that surfing has as a positive, Eco-friendly lifestyle choice, and it’s unique opportunity to make sustainability “cool” within the broader pop culture.

It’s going to be a great night so buy your tickets early, because space is limited we expect this event to sell out!
