So wait, are you telling me you don't have a girlfriend yet? What's wrong with you?? It's summer. You're supposed to go get one. If you need some help, 5th Platoon founding member DJ Neil Armstrong is here for you. The conclusion to Neil's "Sweeet" series of mixes, "Smoove" continues the love vibe across 34 expertly-blended tracks. Your summer is simply not complete until you hear Sleepy Brown and Nu Shooz being rocked simultaneously. For more info on the 5th Platoon crew, Neil, and to make purchases, click here. Trust me on this one--Neil could walk through water, and not get wet. He's that fresh.

Summer is here. The weather is hot, the sun is out, and the water is warm. Before you venture out into the elements, make sure you have some, if not all of these bad boys on. For your water adventures make sure you peep the Hawaiian Island Creations Cherry Bomb board short or the 944 trunk (shown in black and pink).
Surfers aren't the only ones sporting HIC goods. Peep out Matt Sorum of Velvet Revolver, upstart actor Aaron Paul, and Blu Cantrel showing some Hawaiian Island Creations Love.
Thanks to "Braddah B" @ HIC for the images.
new luxury editions of existing models using premium leather and materials...
Don't Sleep on the PUMA Discs... especially in the hot colorways...
from the press release...
This 1993 PUMA signature running shoe is making a comeback just in time for summer. A dangerously limited quantity - only 500 pairs - will be available to sneaker heads seeking the hottest vintage styles of the season. Completely rendered in its original format, the reissue features PUMA's revolutionary Disc closure system and Trinomic shock absorption technology designed for optimum fit, cushioning and stability.
Created for sneaker enthusiasts and collectors looking to turn heads, the Disc Blaze reissue demands attention with a unique profile that extends well beyond the running world. Referencing the playfulness of the early 90s, the Disc Blaze comes in a vibrant scale of colors like snorkel blue, green flash, sulphur yellow, conch shell pink and ceramic green. The first delivery will also feature an all-black and a white/grey color way. The limited edition vintage trainers will be available at exclusive stores beginning June 2004 and retail for approximately $130.

July 24th - Portland, Oregon
In an unprecedented move that many experts forecast will send shockwaves throughout the sneaker industry, Nike will release the very first shoe in what the company has unofficially titled the "Super-Limited-Premium-Exclusive-Retro-Laser-Lux-Artist-Quickstrike-SB" series. The sneaker is a collaboration between designers from Nike, Stussy, Supreme, Nutrasweet brand aspartame low-calorie sugar substitute; Shock G from rap group Digital Underground (the one who put the satin in your panties), actor/comedian Sinbad, and singer Benny Mardones, who scored a hit in 1980 with his song "Into the Night." Only 3.65 pairs of the shoe will be produced, with two going to boutiques in Japan, one pair being sold out of the trunk of Nike CEO Phil Knight's car, and various fabric remnants supplied to select stores in New York and Los Angeles. Mysteriously, full size runs have already appeared for sale on Ebay, with "buy it now" options running in the neighborhood of $120.00. The sneaker will be available in late August 2004.

Hawaiian Island Creations drops the bomb, the "CHERRY BOMB" board short for your boarding pleasure. Insane art work blended with H.I.C. board short technology makes this trunk a definite winner...or should I say, it makes it the bomb!
Remember...When it's hot and glassy you don't need a wet suit...YOU NEED TRUNKS! So get you some! Enjoy the ride!

Okay. I have tried many a board short over my time and had many bad experiences with some. You know what I mean. The stitching starts to come out after one use, the material becomes so saturated with water that it feels like it weighs a ton, or getting that not so comfortable rash from poor stitch finishing and lack of lining in that very, very, very sensitive area.
But recently, I found the most comfortable board short I have ever tried in my entire life. THE RIVIERA board short from Hawaiian Island Creations encapsulates all of what is good in board short technology. The matieral used moves with your body and possess an elastic quality to it ensuring that it remains soft and comfortable during your entire session. The inside is lined with additional material, protecting your most sensitve part from rash. The stitching is rock solid, and to top it all off, the logo placement is insane. You can pick up these trunks at www.beckersurf.com. I am most definitely going to get another pair of these bad boys. See you in the water!
"WHEN IT'S HOT AND GLASSY...YOU NEED TRUNKS! ENJOY THE RIDE!"

You'll never believe this!! I found this reading Maxim...
"Since the dawn of time, humans have burned plants, inhaling unhealthy compounds from the burning that aren't found in the original plant. The Vapir™ line of vaporizers and vaporization products from Air-2 changes all that, releasing an "herb's" essential material without many of the toxic elements created by smoking."
Rumor has it that it is very popular in Holland/Amsterdam...the company does not codone the use of this product -cough- with illegal susbtances. Hot air produced by this gadget draws the essential ingredients into a smokeless, colorless, vapor.
Check out their site:
click the videos and demo...you got to see it to believe it!!
