Cohen helped coordinate the USC-goFlow launch party — hosting over 300 guests at the USC Snowboard Team house. USC Concerts Committee hosted their annual concert. Springfest USC, put together one of the largest concerts USC has ever seen. goFlow, along with a charitable jewelry company called Bead Relief, sponsored the event. Artists included: 2 Chainz, GTA, Portugal the Man, BORNS, Isaiah Rashad, Audiopush, Holy Child, and Walla. Audio Push rapper, Oktane, was rocking a goFlow t-shirt at the event.

If you think a 300-person college party, and sponsoring one of the largest concerts in USC history is a solid start (we certainly do), then you’re surly going to be excited about the upcoming parties and events Cohen is plotting.

Ian Walsh’s Menehune Mayhem

On Saturday, April 4, Ian Walsh is hosting the 12th annual Menehune Mayhem at Ho’ Okipa Beach Park.

Menehune Mayhem is a surf contest that embraces the community of Maui and the scholastic achievements of its participants.

Ian Walsh, an advocate for introducing and instilling a passion for surfing in Hawaii’s youth, created Menehune Mayhem with the support of Fox as a way of giving back to the children and teens of Maui. The one-day free event for kids 17 years & under, showcases what the surf culture and sport have to offer on Maui.​ This year will mark the12th annual of Ian Walsh’s Menehune Mayhem.

“When I first started this event 11 years ago it started as something for the kids to look forward to and give them something to do at the beach because there was a lapse in surf events on Maui at that time.”

Last year over 150 young competitors participated in 10 divisions. We expect a great turnout this year too..and it’s not too late to enter!

To sweeten the deal even more, goFlow has teamed up with SoloShot for a giveaway!

1) Download the goFlow app
2) Upload your best Menehune Mayhem photo to goFlow
3) Share you post on Facebook with the hashtags #MenehuneMayhem and #goFlow

Judges Roni Eshel (founder of goFlow) and Ian Walsh will choose a winning photo, and that winner will receive a SoloShot Robot Camera!
