I received your messages but e-mail at either address gets bounced back. Should I keep trying?

John, sorry about that! I`ve been getting slammed with inquiries… use this one:

Rumour has it that you’re making something for the Waterman’s Ball auction… What’s up…???.. http://www.hollowsurfboards.com

When and where is that uber glamor ball taking place? Heard word that Steve Pezman ala the Surfer`s Journal was running it this year?

at least spell my name correctly! Tim Campbell

Dunno. Heard the auction (isnt it SIMA?) happened sometime back in late June? Contrary to rumor, I wasnt there. Proletariates aren`t welcome.

Hi Paul, Yes, the SIMA Waterman’s Weekend is very stoked to present one of my custom surf mats in its 14th annual auction: www.surfrider.org/huntington/pages/calendar.html http://www.surfingthemag.com/ispy/03_10_03_ball/ “The Surf Industry Manufacturers Association (SIMA) will honor big-wave legend Laird Hamilton as its 2003 Waterman of the Year during this year’s Waterman’s Weekend, to be held August 22-23 at the Saint Regis Monarch Bay Resort and Spa in Dana Point, Calif. The charitable event, which last year raised a record $266,000 for ocean conservation groups, will also award Baja defender Serge Dedina as Environmentalist of the Year, and Body Glove’s Bob and Bill Meistrell, who’ll receive SIMA’s Lifetime Achievement Award…”
