Photos From The World Premiere (And Blowout Dance Party) For “Go Easy On The Zambezi”

It’s a dusty morning in Huntington Beach after last night’s Vans x Stab full send with Harry Bryant and Mikey February.

Last night, the throngs descended on Pacific City, as the door on another day at the Vans US Open slammed shut, one opened for nighttime debauchery, with more than a handful of parties going down in the opulent outdoor Huntington boutique/dining/libation mecca. 

The film won’t drop online for a few weeks, but we were psyched to show our newest production with Vans, “Go Easy on the Zambezi,” starring Mikey February, Harry Bryant, and Dylan Graves on the most critical adventure any of them had ever undertaken: a strike mission deep in the heart of Sub-Saharan Africa, to the Zambezi’s miracle river wave just downstream from Victoria Falls. 

As the sun set, Mikey, Harry, and the film’s directors Sam Moody and Ashton Goggans intro’d the 25-minute adventure flick to the gathered crowd out front of the Bungalow, while a VIP party inside lubricated thoroughly on a top shelf open bar. 

While our recollections of the evening are dusty, we’re glad to have some photographic evidence of the night’s events to put together the pieces. 


While the audio might have sounded like it was being projected from inside the World’s Largest Tin Can, the audience was more than generous enough to listen closely to the film.
