an insane gathering of UCSB and SBCC kids on the beach in Isla Vista, California the first saturday of spring quarter. students build or buy rafts to float around in the fucking cold ass water or they stand around on the beach and just get hammered and try to blackout off large quantities of keystone and natty light just because its fun and we know how to fuckin party and its why we're the best party school in the US.
