When: Thu 1st of January 1970
Where: Suzie Wongs, Beijing
The Quiksilver Season Opening Party went off last Saturday night in Beijing with over 1400 people coming out to have a few drinks and check out the latest Pirate flick ‘Lubedence’. The spot was jam-packed, surpassing all expectations and once again proving that snowboarding in Beijing is an ever growing scene. Suzie Wongs put together a super sick venue, decking out the club as if winter was in full swing, even bringing in a snowmobile and lift chair for effect.
The party raged until the early morning, put to the sound of Beijing’s best foreign DJ – DJ Chozie and China’s undisputed DMC Champion DJ Wordy. Young Kin spat his multi-lingual lyrics and Ben (Sinealadc) and Xiao Mo put on a graffiti show out front. Everyone had a blast and as the crowd thinned out, the entire place turned into a giant dance floor with Beijing’s snowboarders and businessmen cutting up the same rug as if they were one, all brought together by snowboarding and a love for winter.
With Beijing’s best riders and all the familiar faces of the areas snowboard scene present, the winter welcome mat was officially laid out. The Quik and Roxy snow team, as well as the GDR Crew, the rest of the snowboard industry as well as friends and family partied like it was 1999. Kane talked tickets and William got the award for most drunk Burton rep ever at a party. What a great night…
Special thanks goes out to Suzie Wongs and their staff, Quiksilver, the Chinese Pirates and their Ambassador, Chozie, SPEED, Maxim, Time Out and Beijing Talk for a super sick night, and of course to winter for coming soon!
