SUPERILL STORMS HAWAII FOR THE FIRST TIME
I attended my first Hawaiian car show seven years ago. I simply couldn’t get enough, so I started traveling to more events in Honolulu year after year, such as Spocom and Wekfest. This past June, it was time to give back and show some love to the 808 State by bringing them what we’ve been building up over the last couple of years—our Superill pop-up shop and car meet.
The formula for Superill is something Mark Arcenal of Fatlace/illest and I came up with. In essence, Super Street and Illest joined forces to tie automotive and streetwear cultures together. At the core of the collaboration is the limitededition gear (which you can find at superstreetgarage.com), but we also organized a no-frills, free car meet to go along with the apparel drop. It became bigger than what we both could’ve imagined in California, as thousands came to the last two events. We knew we had a recipe for something big, and since Honolulu is like a home away from home for both me and Mark, it only made sense to create Superill Hawaii.
Leeward Community College was the host venue, only a 30-minute cruise from Waikiki Beach, and there was no shortage of good vibes as the four-hour-long meet went off with a bang. We can’t thank the local Hawaii community enough for coming out to support the event with more than 200 registered cars and hundreds more enthusiasts.
From all of us at Super Street and Illest, mahalo! And stay tuned for our next Superill pop-up, which may be coming to a city near you!
