A tide of surf legends rolled into the posh environs of The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel for the 22nd annual Waterman’s Ball, organized by the Surf Industry Manufacturers Association (better known as SIMA). The casual but elite soirĂ©e has raised $6 million for environmental causes in the past two decades and exceeded its $400,000 fundraising goal this year. Among the distinguished guests: Quiksilver’s Bob McKnight and surf legend Greg Long, who was named Waterman of the Year. Photos by Brent Hilleman and Jon Steele
