C'EST LA VIE! Party Pictures

The party went off last Friday night at Catalyst in San Clemente. People of all walks (from former world champs, pro surfers, local shapers, groms and the usual San Clemente riff raff) showed up to check out the glass and resin surfboard art of France’s own “Lucky Bastards“, take a sneak peak of the new “V2 Rocket” surfboard and have a look at the …lost Spring 2012 clothing collection – not to mention the free booze on hand. Here are a few photos from the night.

Cheese and baguettes anyone?
