Party Pics: Stab in the Dark Julian Wilson's Cinco De Mayo Party Announcing DHD as the Winning Surfboard

STAB

Last night in Venice SWELL hosted a party with 400 of our closest friends to unveil the best surfboard inthe world. Really, how else would you get an unbiased winner than giving a top WSL surfer 10 unlabeled boards and cutting him loose in Western Australian ramps? Well, the winner was DHD Surfboards and  Daren Handley was over  the moon as he as handed a framed cover of his Stab in the Dark Covershot.

In typical Stab Mag style the party was littered with eager coeds and a cinco de mayo open bar that set the place on fire.  Photos by Matty Wong
