Meet Me in the Mountains!!!


I can't wait to get out there. But until the fluffy white stuff starts falling, we have to make do with the omni-present video premiers. That being said, here is another one you should definately check out.

I have seen what these guys have put out in the past, and they are always awesome. I was a Robot Food feign when they were doing their stuff, so watching Airblaster duders boosting feels like home. Here are the teasers. See you there!

Nikita, Oh how I love thee.

It has been an ongoing love affair. Face it. Heightened only by the fact that I get to see you 5 days a week. You sponsor amazing events (check out the Nikita Chickita Showdown), you have the best style, you've been from Iceland from the get go, and you make the cutest clothes. Yes. Clothes. What did you think I was talking about? Sheesh.

Anyways, it's no small wonder I'm gaga for Nikita. They continually keep a tight, well developed line, that always harps back to their original mantra "For Girls Who Ride". Skate and snow inspired pieces that are adorable, functional, and best yet, at your closest Coastal. Here are some new pieces...enjoy.

Billabong Gift with Purchase

Who doesn't love free stuff? OK, there can be some pretty bogus 'FREE' stuff out there. So, who doesn't love COOL, free stuff? I thought so. Well, Billabong's got you covered.

For every Billabong purchase over $50, you score a free, reuseable shopping tote. How great is that?!

Reduce, reuse, re-Coastal.

Travis Rice's "That's It, That's All" premier in Seattle!!!

So, I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that if you are involved in the snowboard world in any capacity, you probably heard of "The Community Project." If not, then let me back up for a second. "Community Project" was a project involving hard hitting pro's like Travis Rice, JJ Thomas, Zach Leach, Tyler Lepore, the man himself: Terje Haakonsen, Shaun White, Eero Ettala, etc. Anyways, it was amazing. It was a film that brought all of these guys (unfortunately it was a dude fest, and no women were featured) to come out and film together, regardless of your sponsors, your team, or any of the politics that follows professional snowboarding. So, long story short, it was ground breaking. Well, that was 2 years ago. We hadn't heard anything from Travis Rice until NOW. Quiksilver and Red Bull are sponsoring the new flm: "That's It, That's All."

Although the film won't be released for a month or so, there will be a Seattle premier at the King Cat Theater. Here's the skinny:

8pm , doors at 7pm
King Cat Theater
2130 6th Ave. downtown Seattle
Tickets $10 available NOW
at SnoCon, Evo, Quiksilver Store and

I HIGHLY suggest attending this event!!! Even if watching pro shreds throw down ISN'T your thing, I guarantee the movie (or the bar, what what!) will keep you entertained. There is ALWAYS an after party, and it's ALWAYS a good time.

So, come out, watch some shredding, slap some high fives, and start the stoke for the winter to come!!

In the mean time, here's a teaser:

See ya out there!

New Volcom Accesories!!!

Hello, Hello! I hope you had a wonderful (albeit windy and quintesentially Seattle) weekend! Over here at Coastal, we just got in a slew of super cute, super affordable (!!!) handbags and accesories from Volcom. Here's the line-up:

The first is the Volcom Grandstand Bag, $42 (told you they were inexpensive).
This is the Stealth Handbag is black. For $36, you get an awesome PU handbag with a diagonally striped wht/blk, satin lining. What I love about this bag is how you can wear the strap tucked in as a clutch, tucked in and coming out of one side as a wristlet, or worn normally. Also, I L.O.V.E. the covered pyramid studs that are barely noticeable. They make it punky-chic.

Here are the Tucker Totes, $54:

We have them in Grey and in Black. You'll be surprised how much they hold!

The Busy Bee Hobo bag, $44, is an awesome Fall bag.

OK, I unpacked this bag , and instantly fell in love. This is the Chorus Girl handbag, $38. This uber sweet bag has a built in change purse that is connected to the inside of the bag. I don't fully understand the "Chorus Girl" part of the name, but it definately has a 1930's styling about it.

This is the big Stealth tote bag. For $48, you get this lipstick red wonder. It has the same details the Stealth handbag has. The same satin, striped liner, the same inconspicuous pyramid studs, and the same shiny PU, but it's BIG!!

For all you Vcological lovers, this is the Birdie totebag. It's made of recycled material, and makes a great solution to "paper or plastic?".

Volcom also has super cute bangles this Fall:
$24 for a set of 10. Mix 'em, match 'em, share 'em.

This scarf confused me at first, but I was just scared of it's amazing possibilities:
The Button Down scarf, $32, is super versatile. It can be worm as a hood, or doubled over as a scarf. With the loop shape, you'll never be feeling around for the other end of your scarf while the wind is a blowin'!

So, there ya have it! Get in here and try these beauties on!!!
See you soon!

Totally in your Element!

No side slipping on a snowboard to icy destruction. No barreling down the hill on a borrowed, over-sized down hill mountain bike. No paddling out into the line up on the North Shore. No tight rope unicycle antics. No alligator wrestling...I promise. This is an Element you can totally get into!!

Element skateboards have been making clothing for some time; and with it's ever growing Eden project gaining momentum, I thought this would be a perfect time to show some pieces we just received. In case you're just hearing of Element for the first time, check out their site: It's a wonderful company thats based on being kind to the environment, ourselves, and others. Without a "lets sit around the fire holding hands and sing Coom Baa Ya" feel. Anyways, I'll stop writing. Here are the clothes. That's what you came for anyways, right? Thought so.

In addition to the amazing sportswear, Element also dishes out the cutest accesories...

This is just a random sampling. Stop by either of the stores to check it out, try it on, and get in your helmet required.

OK! So the days are getting shorter, the rain is starting to fall, and so are the temperatures. Could it be? Seriously? Fall is here, and Winter is sure to follow. As sad as it may be, we still have a good two months until we can make some snow angels, and get our tongues stuck on some light poles. BUT, you can stock up on your Burton essentials NOW at either Coastal location. How great is that?! It's simply painless....

Here are some sneak peeks at our assortment:

Meet your next best friend. This is the super warm Sly Puffy Vest in Grape. It's lined with super soft satin and is mega layer friendly. You're other friends will be jealous.


Here's the Scoop Hoodie in Bright White Camo. It's a layering essential that makes slipping it inside your parka effortless. The camo isn't your Grandpa's camo either, it's a new mix of dots, lines, and what nots. Let's call it DigiCamo, shall we?


This is the North Star Hoodie in Multi Square Polka Dot. It's fuzzy on the inside and soft on the outside; the opposite of your boyfriend.


Oh, and this beauty's reversible....


This is seriously the cutest vest I have seen in a great has 2 looks. One is with an over-sized, cloak-esque hood, or the other is with the hood un-buttoned, for a cowl neck look. Fashionista meets Optimus Prime! It's a win/win.


So, get in here and get the goods before they're GONE!

See ya soon!
