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:
DJ Gregory Lynch sets the tone for a big night in NYC
Model Julie Henderson heats up the spot
K2's Charlie Kiesa plays host to Michelle and Whitney from Paper Magazine

Jetlag is no fun, no fun at all. I’ve already watched 2.5 hours of entertainment and it’s about 5 a.m… sweet.
This year we teamed up with Original Penguin Clothing by Munsingware on the brand spanking new Slayblade board, Auto bindings, and totally new Maysis boot. The Slayblade has already won a ton of awards for performance on snow and now is getting all the hype for the great designed look. Click the image below to see what they had to say.

That’s right kids, Tim Eddy alongside chef Hanna Fuller at the session four staff sale at High Cascade. Come up to Mount Hood for muffins by Tim and maybe he’ll cut you a deal on one of his used Believers with his personal sticker job still intact.
I just got home from a trip to Whislter with a couple of the “People Crew” for a session at Camp Of Champs. Boarding was fun, but it was hot, hot, hot up there. Summer boarding bro. Check the phots Below.
The commute to the Glacier includes 2 chair rides, a bus, and another chair ride

Whistlers new multi-million dollar “Peak to Peak”. The verdict = “kind of weak
That dude in the sweet kit is Hans Ahlund. Hans is from Sweden, and I thought his kit was worth blogging
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…………………………?
