Our etnies Euro rocker and ThirtyTwo team rider Danny Larsen just got back from the Czech Republic. While there he hooked up the press with a radio interview, a shop opening, a signing session and the Pirate Walk the Plank video premiere.
It was Danny’s first radio interview and here’s his little story:
Well, I’m back from Prague, that was a fun and hectic trip. I Got up at four a.m. on Friday morning and arrived in Prague at 10 a.m. Got picked up by Anna Simonkova from K2 Czech and was taken straight to the Free Magazine office. A great bunch of guys. I was there for only about half an hour, but managed to get some pics, a T-shirt and a board (the main prize at the premiere) signed before we (Renda the editor and Ondrej, writer for Free magazine) left for lunch.
After lunch we headed for a radio interview on one of the big radio channels. It was a pretty fun experience and my first time in a radio studio. The interview lasted for about five minutes, I guess. They even played Motörhead for me (they play mostly pop/hip-hop).
After the interview Ondrej and I were dropped of downtown while Renda headed out to fix up the club for the night. We then headed out to the brand new K2 store in the middle of Prague. The store was pretty damn cool. The guys had done a pretty damn good job making a great K2 snowboard store. We attended the official opening of the store (at least I think so, my Czech is a bit rusty), followed by some autograph signing and drinks. I actually got to sign my first cell phone and pair of tits ever. Well, to be honest I had to sign the tits of a Czech K2 rider and I had to draw the tits on his t-shirt. But first tits signing ever! I also signed the store toilet, a great experience even though it kinda smelled of... well, toilet, when I had to squat down and sign it.
After some interviews for different mags and TV stations we headed to the club. After we got to the club things got a little blurry. We had some beers while the place filled up.
After this the alcohol level and my lack of sleep started catching up with me. But we showed the film, got to throw out loads of stash and give away a full K2 setup to a lucky winner. The guy who won it was so fucking happy, ha-ha, it was great to see the winner was a guy who really appreciated it.
After that point I tried to find spots backstage where I could get a quick power nap, unfortunately people kept finding me right when I was about to fall asleep and ended up bringing me back into the club and bar.
I even won a dance off against a bodybuilder, I think he was gay.
Here are some photos of the party. Enjoy!
