That’s It, That’s All…. That is Until Jake from Hi-Shredability Shows Up

The Quiksilver and Red Bull folks got together last night for a screening of Travis Rice’s “That’s It, That’s All”, at Cinespace in Hollywood.  Director Curt Morgan took some questions from the audience following the screening, as everyone relaxed in the comfort of the dimly-lit Hollywood lounge.  Meanwhile, in the front bar-area of the venue, a party was stewing for the new Hollywood film feature, “I Love You, Man”. The movie’s street team descended onto the Quiksilver dudes, handing them t-shirts, and trying to get everyone photographed for marketing posterity. All hams at heart, the Quiksilver dudes obliged as the night quickly turned into a variety show of action sports culture and personality.  Pro snowboarder Austin Smith channeled skate legend Christian Hosoi, ripping his t-shirt to bits as he joined surf maniac and Hi-Shred producer Jake Burghart on the dance floor.  Adding to the insanity, Guadalajara Joe materialized the moment the Kamikaze bar opened its doors – please note G-Joe’s south-of-the-border-mustache. I’m sure the lovely ladies from the San Fernando Valley didn’t expect such a rush of surf/skate/snow dance moves and hi-jinks, but they were pleasantly surprised. Best dance moves of the night goes to Jake for what we called the “elastic superman” and “dancefloor ninjitsu”.
