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

You won’t wanna miss it. We’ll also be dropping a short profile series on the shapers in the coming weeks. Stay tuned. (more…)
I cannot believe Coachella is around the corner… That being said, I have been loving all looks that involve festival vibes. When I laid eyes on this off the shoulder crochet top from Swell, I became obsessed with how many ways I could wear this piece.
