Monday, June 12: Kelly Slater's "Letting Go" NYC Premiere
Seven-time surf world champion (and "surfing genius" according to peers) Kelly Slater is launching his new surf movie in New York City on Monday, June 12th. He's going to introduce the film and do a Q&A; session afterwards. All proceeds from the fundraiser are going to the Surfrider Foundation's NYC chapter. Surfrider is "a grassroots, non-profit, environmental organization that works to protect our oceans, waves, and beaches" via activism, demonstrations and education. You can learn more about them on their website (check out their mission & principles - very green). Doors open at 7:00pm, tickets are $25 and the location is: Pier 63 North River (Enter at the end of West 23rd Street and the Westside Highway).
