The event is part of Cobian Footwear’s “Every Step Matters” tour and is free and open to the public. Hamilton serves as an ambassador for the brand, for which she also designed a special sandal collection. A portion of the sales from the flip flops will go toward her nonprofit, Friends of Bethany, which helps shark attack survivors and amputees. 

The first 200 people to by a pair of Cobian sandals will get a wristband for a meet-and-greet and photo opportunity with Hamilton. Attendees can also enjoy giveaways and live music by fellow pro surfer Nikki Viesins.
