Off The Hook – Original Penguin x K2 Snwbrdg Blow up the Standard!

Over-the-top is the best way to describe last night’s 09.10 official launch party for the Original Penguin x K2 Snowboarding collaboration. K2 International Pro Team rider, Eero Niemela, flew in to celebrate his newly minted Slayblade steed while – no sh*t – Princess Beatrice of York flew in from outer space.

Held at New York’s Standard Hotel (read: newest/hottest spot in the city), riders, reps and retailers mixed it up with NY’s fashion and social elite. The result? Well, we’ll let you read all about it from frenzied bloggers, the paprazzi and untold amounts of media elite – who were all out in full-effect:

I’m on a Boat

So I went up to Seattle last week on my way to Camp of Champs, and the weather was amazing! We were going to go to a free Mud Honey show and then a friend invited us out on his boat. Needless to say we went on the boat. How does that song go again…………………………?
