Big winner Luan, Steve Black, and Theotis at the Sunday night afterparty at The Bricks.

This was the shirt DJ Wade was wearing when he fell off a ramp and almost died at Spring Break Yo’ Self in San Diego years ago.

Rad dads Mike Fitz and Oliver Flores.

Theotis knows that bandz will make ’em dance.

Ishod and Nyjah.

Host with the most, Brian Schaefer danced through the floor.

A beer-soaked mosh pit broke out. Austyn may have instigated it.

Nyjah’s shirt got Hulk Hogan’d but he still made requests to DJ Wade.

Shaqueefa founder Scotty Conley had a new batch of Ts. Blair Alley got this exclusive one of one.

The dance floor was getting #turnt!

Ishod is one of the best dudes out! Kills it on and off the board, obviously.
