Our friends at The Standard might have jumped the gun a bit, but it’s kind of hard not to when you have a collaboration that gets better every year. So here you have it…the official announcement: Quiksilver and The Standard present the third edition of a collaborative boardshort line! Like last time, they are inspired by each of The Standards four hotel locations New York, Downtown LA, Hollywood and Miami. Pick up a pair at The Standard’s poolside vending machines or at www.ShopTheStandard.com.
In addition to a new collection of 2011 Quiksilver X The Standard boardshorts, we have even more exciting news to tell you about. For the past two years The Standard has played host to some amazing pool parties to celebrate the release in both LA and then Miami, but this year we’re bringing it to New York for the Quik Pro New York September 1-15. The Standard New York is Quiksilver’s partner hotel in the city during the contest and will be the athletes playground while they explore the Big Apple on lay days. We wanted to make sure the athletes will have a home away from the beach equipped with a personal athlete concierge, lounge area and surf films rolling in the plaza if they need a place to unwind in the concrete jungle. So grab a pair of The Standard boardshorts and we’ll see you in New York for some surfing, live music (40+ bands) and all sorts of good times.
September 2nd marks the kick off party, at where else? The Standard’s Le Bain. Before the evening festivities begin you can catch Tony Hawk in The Standard New York’s backyard at Pier 54 for his vert demo – details in the video below.
