As part of our recent Asian Adventure to exhibit at the China Vape Expo in Shenzhen, our crew teamed up with some old friends in Hong Kong and hit the underground party called Secret Island Party. We originally were just going to attend and hang - but were asked to set up the Racer Tasting Bar to share the vape experience and our flavors with the fine folks of Hong Kong - here's a look at this awesome event:
The first part of the trip was to take a ferry from Hong Kong to one of the many islands about 30 minutes away. The Hong Skyline from the sea was breathtaking. #YogurtBomb handcheck
Next we jumped in a local boat known as a sampan for the final leg to the mysterious Secret Island
The organizers sent out this map - which was actually fairly accurate as far as the layout and set up
Hong Kong's Jason B with a quick intro as our Sampan arrived at the beach
The beach arrival area was stunning - with camping nestled on the white sandy beach
The main area (aka center camp) had several bars, lots of food and of course, some excellent music.

As the sun went down, things shifted to a nocturnal wonderland
We set up the Racer Tasting Bar at the stage called "The Rabbit Hole"
Surprisingly, the people of Hong Kong had very little knowledge of vaping, despite the birth of the Ecig industry less than 50 miles away in Shenzhen. They did love the concept and the Racer flavors and we hopefully turned quite a few smokers on to the idea that there's an alternative to combustion that is light years ahead of dirty old cigs.
It was a lot of fun to "share" Cafe Racer's flavors
Meanwhile, the 3,000 or so people raged on at the several stages.

Lots of interesting characters on the beach ... and one hard core acid techno guy
Big ups to the whole team from Secret Island Party and to our local hosts May and Jason for opening up the world of Hong Kong's underground music and arts scene to us ..... we can't wait to return next year!
Here are some more pics from the event organizers... enjoy
