The afterparty started cordially at the newly opened Sun Diego store where free food and beverages were provided and enjoyed amid their enormouse fully stocked new shop. Hopefully not too much red wine and fish taco juice ended up on the bikinis and dress shirts on the walls. Worlds collided as the Sk8mafia and the Ego Mob were both present in the so-called VIP exclusive gala. Things got rowdy but peace was kept in the name of continuing the party at the Wavehouse.
The party raged on as we watched people surf a gigantic stationary wave behind a 30-girl plus bikini contest. Daredevil Jane played, but I really can’t be sure of anything that happened outside of a five foot radius of the sand-floored bar I was holding down with Brian Schaeffer and many of San Diego’s finest skaters including but not limited to Oscar Jordan, Danny Wallace, Brandon Turner, Peter Smolik, Jimmy Astleford, Shuriken Shannon, and many more. It was a fun night to say the least, and yes, we were all Spring Broken the next day.—Blair Alley
