Hawaii state of mind…


Free, wanderlust, happy, scared, creative, careless…pretty much sums up where my minds been since coming home to Hawaii nearly 2 week’s ago. Just shy of my 30th birthday, I needed this move. Aside from missing all of the friends I’d left behind, I wouldn’t say I was miserable in FL, but it was just all too familiar. In other words, my routine & the mundane had gotten the best of me. I needed a reset. I needed sun, surf, family, mountains & scenery, I needed home. The crazy thing about Hawaii’s the familiar feeling you get when you come back as it’s almost like you never left, as if time just stands still here. And it’s not just the familiar places but also the people.

It’s been a great inspiration being here surrounded by so much beauty, so much, that I’m also working on a little release to pay homage to this great land. As in typical style though, when I began to work on it creativity flowed and I ended up with a lot more ideas which (who knows) just might turn into other mini drops. I’ll take it one step at a time. The release date’s pending but you’ll see something within the next few months. For now, just take a look at one of the beaches we’ve been frequenting to get an idea of what I’m talking about. I can’t wait to show you guys the type of influence living here will have on SP:

It’s Good to be HOME!


The last 3 months of life have been CHAOTIC (for both me and my lady)! Between selling all of our apartment furniture, transporting my dog & car, packing and saying goodbye’s to all of our friends & family, let’s just say that we were drained. But through all of the sweat & frustrations, when our airplane door closed a smile came across my face as I knew we had done it and in due time we’d be in paradise.

I had been away (save for Summer trips here and there) from Hawaii for 22 years and when we landed, I couldn’t believe that I was finally home! We traded a faster paced life, convenience & the same old same old for the gentle vibe of Island life, which for anyone unaccustomed to it, is very slow & chill. Having been here now slightly over a week, we’ve just been kicking back, expanding our minds, enjoying the beach & food & hiking which has been a nice payment for our moving troubles.

Due to the demands of the move, I took a little time off from SP and the blog but now that we’re here I’ll be updating more frequently as I want to show you a more in-depth look at Hawaiian life & culture, so stay tuned for more updates. On the new release front, I have a couple drops in the works so stay tuned for more updates on those as they come. Before we get to some visuals, be sure to check out my ladies new blog Maui Wowie Life as you just might find me in a couple episodes as well! Here’s a little glimpse of life on Maui:

No shoes here brah!

Canada, Eh


This was my first experience in a large Canadian city, and it was AWESOME! As a kid, we’d periodically trek up to northern Ontario in the middle of nowhere to our family cabin. So wilderness, outhouses, fishing & gorgeous scenery were the only things of this huge country I had seen. But this, this trip was much different so back on topic. We headed up to CA (namely Pickering) so I could meet my girlfriends moms side of the family and to celebrate her grandmas big 80. The family outings were sweet as her family’s MASSIVE and really made me wish I had such a large one. So if you do, cherish that shit! Besides the gatherings, we trekked around Toronto, ate some AMAZING food & also caught an interesting set from the Gaslamp Killer.

The one thing that stood out to me as we trekked through the city is how nice & happy the folks were. People were smiling, social & actually interested in another human beings presence. America, step your shit up! I mean hell, you could even walk around toking a J and no one even batted an eye (not that I would do that or anything…). It was a very short trip (4 evenings) and the perfect little breather before we batten down the hatches and depart for island life. With that being said, enjoy these visuals and send me some POUTINE:

Change’s a Coming…



There’s been a lot going on in my world which of course by default (since I’m a one-man team) relates to SP, so I wanted to write this post to give y’all some insight into what’s going down as of late. On June 10th me, my girlfriend & pup will be undertaking a big move from our current residence of FL allllllllllllll the way to my original place of birth on the lovely island of Maui, Hawaii (I know, pretty dope, right?). It’s an idea we’ve been kicking around for over a year now and we’re stoked to finally set a date and begin the BIG task of moving our lives from the Eastcoast to West (insert your favorite gangster rap lyric of choice).

Still Proud will still be going strong so don’t be concerned about that.  I’m actually very excited to introduce the brand over there because of how dynamic & strong the culture is. Plus, if there was ever a fun story to tell it would be Hawaii’s , so I’ll be keeping the blog a bit more updated as well. On the topic of releases…

With the upcoming move I had to skip out on an official “Summer” drop, but the good news is that we have some other little releases in the works so you probably won’t even notice:

-HI capsule: To celebrate the move I’ll be doing a Hawaii inspired capsule collection with some soft goods as well as a few limited hats.

-4th of July is also right around the corner so you just might see some grade A-Merikana items up for grabs.

-Cinco de SP: Oh, and no biggie but this Summer marks our 5th YEAR IN EXISTENCE (crazy shit)! So to celebrate, I’ve got a couple items in the works that go! Perhaps maybe even another basketball jersey…

The release date on those will be unveiled within the next month or two.

With all of this going on, I need your help. We still have a decent amount of stock on hand that I would like to depart with so let’s take our sale up from 50% to 55% off with “Spring” at checkout. It will not get any better than this folks so PLEASE spread the word to your friends!

As if all of this wasn’t enough, I’m heading up to Canada on Wednesday for 5 days to meet some of my girls family & to also venture around Toronto. I couldn’t be more excited! Stay tuned for a post trip recap as well as updates on all of the above as they unfold.
