The Party Went Swimmingly

posted by / Photos, Swim / April 3, 2011

SURFING’s annual Swimsuit Issue is on newsstands now. Now, we don’t need much excuse to throw a party. Needless to say, this more than qualified. Thanks to PacSun and Peligroso Tequila for greasing the skids, and to Frends Headphones, Rumba Time Watches, Tonic and HDX for the goody bags.

The Swimsuit Issue release party at the Standard hotel in Hollywood.
