Leave it to Transworld Surf to start a
"The Surfrider Charity Event on August 16, 2009 was packed with ocean conscience, party animal OC residents!"
If you're wondering why Transworld was bothering to cover a charity event at all, well, it's because there was "a very sexy bikini contest" that went along with it.
According to Transworld, "The girls had to also compete in a hula-hoop contest in their bikinis and in high heels—what a combination."
Yes, what a combination: Keeping our OC beaches clean via the gross objectification of women! BOOYAH! All we're missing is some self-serving environmental-product marketing... oh, wait. Did I mention that they raffled off an electric bicycle?
As a commenter on the TW article noted, "only in southern california can a two-wheeled self propelled device (known as a fuckin bicycle) become “green” by installing an electric motor…"
If the Surfrider Foundation is keen to step up and be taken seriously as a vital, mature, responsible non-profit, this is surely a step in the right direction.
Who can forget the dignified and moving
If you're wondering how in the custard-fuck Surfrider got involved with this loonery, look no further than event planner Raquel Figlo, of Raquel Entertainment Media
"Based out of Los Angeles we are the innovator of what we like to call, progressive thinking. The provided value we bring to our clients is demonstrated through brand awareness with celebrity hosted fashion shows and events..."
Kudos to you, Raquel Figlo. Looks like Dave Rastovich has some competition for the SIMA 2010 Environmentalist of the Year award.
