Maui Trippin X Fashionista's Market

Maui is my new stay-cation getaway. Maui is so lush and green with beautiful weather and no VOG. Kona is depressing these days with the volcano smog, aka VOG, lingering around full-time. I really appreciate the clear visibility of the other islands.

I banged out an action packed five day trip with retailer appointments, meetings, fashion market, surf and relaxation. I stayed with our Maui Organik team rider, Erik, and his wife, Jaime. They fed me well with meat, wine and guri guri. We scored waves at some secret spots with nobody else out. I rode Erik's 5'5" Tokoro fish and loved it. He surfed his brand new new T&C longboard for the first time and shredded.

I checked into the Hyatt to set up the Organik booth on Friday. The Fashionista's Market took place the following day.  The event was jammed packed with people busy shopping from 11-7. Alyssa & Alex did a wonderful job with the pace of the event and four fashion shows throughout the day. The big screen with music videos and kick ass DJ made the day even better. We sold a ton of shirts and even got some new accounts on Maui. Stayed tuned for our new Organik retailer announcement.

Summer Designs & Styles

Here are some pics of what you'll find in stock at your local Organik retailer. We're stoked to announce our latest styles and designs for the Summer season. We have new recycled polyester and organic cotton beach tanks, organic cotton tank dresses and micromodal wrap dresses.

Fashion X Blaine Ashley go hand in hand. The Honolulu based stylist, boutique owner & PR agent, Blaine Ashley, now carries the Organik Beach Bum bag because she only promotes products she loves. Fashionism featured Blaine Ashley and she gave us a shout out.
Organik hearts BA :)

Summer Collection X Four Fins of Fun X Maui Bound

OK. So many happenings and going ons.  First and foremost, Fashionista's Market - The Ultimate Girls Day Out is going on this Sat. May 15 at the Hyatt Regency in Maui starting at 11 AM. Over 35 vendors will be present to outfit you from head to toe. Spas, massage, bar & fashion show will be on site as well. Save big with 30%-50% off Organik guys and girls clothing. This is a one day event, so make every attempt necessary to not miss out.

In the surfing world, Kona shaper Mike Jacobs, has new designs in the modern high performance shortboard realm. This is the Swordfish.

This is my custom Mike Jacobs board called the Dreamweaver. I named it Snooki because it's short and wide. It's 5'5" X 19.25." This is for the summer south swells in Hawaii, which are smaller than our winter north swells that brings the north shore alive. Notice the Seas of Guids doing fistpumps of fury with artwork by Matt Panz.

I love the new Mike Jacobs logo with the shark planer, an essential tool needed for fine surfboard craftmanship.

The base of my custom made Snooki surfboard has an option of a quad or thruster set up. The Organik sticker is placed on the nose for above the lip maneuvers. These fins cost lots of money. It's only a matter of time before I hit the reef and destroy them.

I'm keeping it green with an eco tail pad from OAM, Famous eco wax, Wave Tribe recycled plastic leash and wearing an Organik bamboo t-shirt to keep the sun off my back.

If you missed Iron Man 2, go see it now. Super exciting with lots of action. Sam Rockwell rocks these Initium eyeglasses in the movie.  He's copying my steez.

Cinco de Mayo was extra fun in Chinatown in downtown Honolulu. We started at JJ Dolan's for some NY style pizza that is on point. 2 thumbs up! Then cruised across the street to Bambu Too for $5 martinis and cool ambiance. We sucked down 3 martinis and hit the streets.

3 blocks of Hotel St. was blocked off for foot traffic only. And yes there was tons of foot traffic with bands, DJs, alcohol, dancing and street vendors. 

We ended the night at SoHo and danced away to Acid Wash 80's music in both rooms. Laurens found this Nacho Libre cocktail server and posed. It was a great week and another great weekend to come.

The Dark Room X The Mixx X Apr 30

Happy May 1! Just woke up from a few too many beers at the Mixx Bistro and sake/sushi at Saketumi.  We checked out our friend Matt's new band, The Dark Room, and to see his newly acquired '68 Gibson bass. The Dark Room shredded last night with covers including the Pixies, the Outfield, the Misfits, the Cure and a few other 80's-90's bands. This was their second gig playing out, which happened to be next door to our favorite Japanese restaurant in Kona, Saketumi. They played like season veterans with a special appearance by Matt's parents who traveled all the way from NJ. It's funny so see hippies dancing like hippies to the Misfits. I wish I had video of the silliness, but there's always next time. Anywho, thank you to all those showed up to support our local music scene.
