Bikini Party! Photos from the Billabong Bikini Truck Launch Party, Powered by SWELL

It’s official…the Billabong Bikini Truck is on the road!
Because no maiden voyage is complete without a proper send-off, we celebrated over Bikini ‘Tinis at Shelter, Encinitas. And a bikini party is the best kind of party. Says us at least. Want to join in on the party? Come by the retail launch party Saturday, March 1st at the Saguaro, Palm Springs. Read on for photos + more launch3launch4 launch8 launch7 launch6 launch5

Special thanks to:
* Shelter Encinitas: for lifting the roof off for us so we could enjoy the last bit of sunshine and stars with our craft cocktails. We’ll be seeing you again soon, very soon.

* Billabong: without whom, the Bikini Truck would simply be a Truck. And then we’d be having a truck stop. To which we’d say, “boo.”

* Nixon: For providing the necessary truck tuneage via your indestructible Blasters.

* The Cravory: For the beginning of a beautiful Salted Carmel cookie addiction.

* Beaming: For the guilt free Bikini Tinis mixed with your organic pressed juice. It’s all about balance, right?

* Our gift bag sponsors: Vonzipper, Element X Fender, Element Eden, Freedom Artists, T. Patterson, Pura Vida, Flying Dutchman’s Handplanes, Rock Ridge Music, Bright Antena, and Flea Market Girl

A huge thanks to everyone who came to celebrate the launch with us. Especially this guy:
