Rad Collector - DC Gold Standard Kickoff
It’s an action sports party bonanza this week. Across the country DC is holding court at the Standard LA and kicked things off for their Gold Standard 2009 last night. While Peanut Butter Wolf rocked, heads like Nick Dompierre, Chad Cagy, Jolene Van Vugt, Ikka Backstrom, Kimmy Fasani, Aaron Bittner, and Corey Bohan partied with Hollywood types and other industry hangers on. The Gold Standard 2009 is sponsored by Monster Energy, Codemasters’ DiRt 2, New Era, FUEL TV and TransWorld Media. Check out the pics after the jump.

Rad Collector - Roxy Dear and Yonder Premiere
Roxy and Paper Magazine teamed up last night to premier the new Roxy surf film Dear and Yonder by Tiffany Campbell and Adria Lessler. Throwing a block party at Mollusk Surf Shop and Secret Project Robot in Williamsburg, it had both things a surf party should – endless beer and beautiful surf chicks. Roxy ripper Kassia Meador was on hand with an exhibition of her photos and there was even a full live set by Amanda Blank. Check out a gang of photos after the jump.

K2 x Penguin Launch Party

Rad Collector - K2 x Penguin Launch Party
K2 and Original Penguin had a launch party for their board/boot/binding collab this Wednesday at the brand new Standard Hotel in NYC. The party was fire, although perhaps the least bro-brah in the history of snowboarding parties, with top notch accouterments and a high concentration of beautiful people. The K2 crew held it down and Eero Niemela was in the house to co-sign for the Slayblade, which he’ll be shredding this year. “Its a stiff, fast board,” he said, “I’m stoked to be riding it.” The Penguin-inspired graphics, although still kind of random, look good on the product – it will be interesting to see who picks up this setup this year. More pics after the jump.

Rad Collector - Hush DC Howard Dunks
We brought you those sick WE Skate-Hi’s done up by Hush, now check out out his latest creation – the DC Howard Dunks. Wanting to recreate one of his favorite DC kicks, Hush flipped a cowskin suede upper with ballistic mesh and 3M accents, borrowed some eyelets from an Air Max 1 and put them on a Dunk sole. It’s pretty safe to say, this dude is a genius! More looks after the jump.

P-Rod Today Was a Good Day Extended Version

31 July 2009, 11.22 | Posted in Skateboarding, Sneakers, advertising | 2 comments »

Peep all things P-Rod right here.

Quiksilver x The Standard | Boardshort Vending Machine

Rad Collector - Quiksilver x The Standard Boardshort Vending Machine
This is some inside of the box thinking right here. Quiksilver has installed board short vending machines by the pool at The Standard Hotels in LA, Miami, NY, and Hollywood. Now even if you spaced on packing them you’re still all good to get wet. Each city has a specific colorway and the shorts are meant to emulate a retro design which means they are a bit tight – what else would you expect at The Standard though? In some more good thinking, there is a women’s bikini available in each machine as well so a quick game of “who can get naked and into a suit first” should be more than manageable. Check out the trunks after the jump.

Rad Collector - Billabong x Taj Burrow
Over in the southern hemi, Billabong has just released a collab collection with Australian pro surfer Taj Burrow, called the Taj Co-Op. Way more sophisticated than most would associate with surfwear, the collection spans from high end tees to some pretty ill hoodies and jackets to headwear and accessories like a wallet and a watch. No word yet on whether this stuff will be available globally or only in the Aussie/Kiwi market. More looks after the jump. To see the entire collection go to Empire Ave.

Rad Collector - Grenade x Thrasher Japan Only Release
In continuing the tradition of “Japan gets all the good shit” Thrasher Magazine and Grenade are releasing an exclusive Japan-only collab on the CC935 pipe glove this September. Coming in a nice christmas-y red and green, this is another solid move by Grenade as they continue to push way past being a snowboard specific glove company. A look at the red ones after the jump.

Nike 6.0 Stinkween Bash at the Motel No Tell

30 July 2009, 11.42 | Posted in Parties, Sneakers, artist collaboration, lifestyle | No comments »


Nike 6.0 is going so big in SoCal right now. As we mentioned a few times before, they swooped in and took over a whole motel in downtown San Clemente and turned it into the Motel No Tell, an artist and athlete-inspired respite away from the bro brah craze of the OC’s action sports event packed summer. Last week during Agenda and the US Open of Surfing, they threw down a crazy jammy jam to release the Stinkween Braata with Madsteez and Stink. All stunts were pulled out: They had lasers, a Delorean and a $36,000 sublimation machine so people could do one of a kind sublimated tees on the spot. And since kids can’t drink booze, they even had a candy room so the young’uns could tweak out on suger! Roll the video.

Rad Collector - Ambiguous Holiday 09
Although they are only recently back in the game, Ambiguous is not wasting any time. After a couple of dope 4A artist series drops, they are taking it up a notch for Holiday 2009 with a full collection of knits, flannels, cardigans, even a full-on trench coat. Subtle and classic, the whole lines looks to be both versatile and very rockable. Check out some highlights after the jump.
