Simon ‘Swilly’ Williams is one of pro surfing’s most prolific photographers.

The perpetually smiling lensman has shot the world’s best mens and womens surfers all around the world, and now he is throwing a party to launch his website swilly.com.au and raise money for The Gold Coast Surfing Reserve.

The event also coincides with a silent auction for ten of Swilly’s most sought after prints signed by the world’s best surfers. If you want to check out the pics go to www.galabid.com/swilly

We can’t say who is playing at the launch party tonight, but we can tell you the roof will be lifted off the Rainbow Bay Surf Club at some stage this evening. The function starts at 6.30pm and the venue is likely to fill up fast.

When: March 17th 6:30pm

Where: Rainbow Bay Surf Club
