The 5th Global Wave Conference brings together the best international minds from the surfing, conservation and innovation communities to tackle the world’s most challenging ocean issues.
The Speakers’ Dinner kicked off the 5th Global Waves Conference serving up drinks, dinner, and lively conversations. Upon arriving at the Dream Inn, guests picked up their engraved recycled wood surfboard shaped name tags and headed into the dining room with floor to ceiling window views of the Santa Cruz Wharf. This is where carefully placed table settings and displays of handmade rich, glossy wood surfboards awaited them. The pleasant warmth and smell of spaghetti, veggies, and chicken filled the room, along with cheerful chatter.
