We are very close with the EuroJerks car club. These guys have some really sweet looking automobiles and they are very well maintained. Gaston with his MkIV Jetta looking clean as ever wanted to put something together. We were in the Boulder Station hotel in Las Vegas at wuste2011. We were sipping on some bud light, with no pun intended and began to film. It came out pretty decent for the amount of footage we captured. The song on the video is exactly how the car made me feel.SWAG

DYNT Individuals | Brandon Groves

HWPO presents “DYNT Individuals” A series of randomly selected friends & supporters.

Brandon is a member of Travis’s car club the EuroJerks. We randomly choose him because we were recently up in the mountains and just seen his car. Really, so we took his car up to Mt. Baldy and put this together. The end gets really funny, tell us what you think…

HWPO presents “DYNT Individuals” A series of randomly selected friends & supporters for DYNT. We are going to begin working on some new projects with DYNT. We will begin releasing more our work. We hope u enjoyed the video. Leave a comment if you could and here’s a little write up about the model.

For Vol. 2 we shot with Danielle Jocelyn, a model originally from Lancaster, CA. She has been featured in numerous runway shows & shoots. She also is a aspiring actress that is well on her way with a personality & humor that is out of this world. She modeled the Limited “Monroe” Crewneck, if you don’t move fast I’m sure it will be sold out by the time you read this so get going. Continue to support and come around, who knows… you may be our next video feature.

We’ve decided to start a series of video’s with the DYNT fellas. This is the first of many were going to bring to you. Jason is a fellow member of Travis’s car club the EuroJerks. The day was raining and his car was perfect. I’m actually a fan of this video. It’s cool, the lighting that day was perfect for some reason. Leave a comment if you enjoyed it.

EVENT | Happy Birthday Mateo! “Boycott Mateo” Event Recap

Posted in Events, Hard Work Pays Off, Spotlight, Videos, Whats goin on on September 24, 2010 by hardwrkpaysoff

It’s always good to be able to celebrate another year of life, but its even better when you celebrate it with your team, family, friends & supporters. Mateo isn’t really big on parties but this year we definitely threw him one for the memory bank. Seeing to how this would be the only time that our team will be able to go out and have fun due to the amount of work we have to do, we thought we would make our one day of a night to remember. A over capacity Club 101 at Cantina Lounge in Fullerton was packed with enjoyment. The photos can be found on the DOnUt Facebook so make sure you add it to retrieve them, & the HWPO Flickr for those who do not have a facebook. Big Thank You to Phil of Cheeky Bastard Photography for giving us a break and handling the photobooth! Also a thank you to United Virtuoso & a happy birthday to Kenny & Epic!


Spotlight: Grast – New Lifestyle Boutique in New York City Subway

Posted in Hard Work Pays Off, Spotlight, Whats goin on on August 15, 2010 by hardwrkpaysoff

I think one of the dopest things you could possible imagine doing, being a brand or even just being a huge fan of the streetwear, art,  & skate culture would be opening your own shop,  But having it in a dope location is just a dream! I can’t stress enough how much I love the Subway system of New York, now I just liked it a little bit more!

Located within the mezzanine of West 42nd Street and 8th Avenue Station, a major transportation junction point that includes the Port Authority Bus Terminal, GRAST will offer many hard to find products, like 400% BE@RBRICKS by MEDICOM TOYS, and other graphic oriented items. In opening the shop, Andrade stated “I saw a void in the untapped market of the NYC subway and wanted to pay tribute to the history of the subway; including the NYC underground art scene and old school graffiti artists.” Similar to commuters in Tokyo, now their New York counterparts would not have to rush during their commute.
