Sauna Truck April 3rd 2013: All Night Beach Mission

Sauna Truck City Beach Mission – Hightide, 4am ocean skinny dips,  starry night sky, boombox playing dirty dancing and 90s’s mix tapes, car loads of sweaty naked folks, Hino KL Sauna Truck,  fully customized 35foot red ‘spaceship’ bus, hot steamy mulled spiced boozy cider, magnificent tree exhaled air, deep black night, ominous twinkling cargo and oil tankers in the inlet, the city in the distance, the mobile sauna session was in full swing from 8pm sharp till 5am soft.

Infinite thank you’s to the trees, the land, the birds and the people who made it a sublime evening. Below are a few images from the night taken by a new saunagoer, Scott Armstrong.

Back to the Banks 2011

Ok the two nights at the Two Kings 10 year sauna sweatacular were dope, but we’ve got one more: we’re going back to Spanish Banks tonight for another beach mission. Maybe you were there for the epic acid Laser Zepplin after party circa 2005? Maybe you biked in for our Spanish banks ice trilogy in December 2009? Or maybe you just heard how amazing it is to stand sipping cider steaming naked in the moonlight on the beach in winter with an epic view of Vancouver and the north shore mountains. You can’t rent beachfront moments like this in this city, you just have to own it. Like tonight. Second-to-last parking lot at Spanish Banks, 8 till late.

10 years of saunasessions

So 10 years ago we had this idea to build a sauna in a truck and drive it up to the Intention festival for new years eve. That sunday we had a few peeps over for a sweat. We did it again the next week. And every week since. 10 sweaty years. This saturday, Jan 1, and this sunday Jan 2 we’ll be trying to figure out what happened and celebrating all those buckets of persperation. Bring some tunes, some tea, any old sauna party photos, and of course, bring a towel. 2Kings estate, 4093 Dumphries, basically on Kingsway just east of Knight st, across from the Rona, 8 till late.

Creation Slayshun

OK that may have been the most epic saunasession ever (or at least “one of the. . .”). KLC was closing down the Creation Station in Whistler and we went up there to heat it up. The tension started building when the truck (of course) broke down before we even started moving, but you know we’re dope so we got that shit operational. Were we doing gung fu cha styles on a stove in the cab during a rainstorm on the way up? Oh yea. Epic sweats for two days in whistler jumping in the river at Function Junction? Check. 2 days of dressup with hot peeps and limitless wardrobe? Freestyling for 16 hours with a mic feed live from the sauna? Rapping in a real fucking bear’s face? Ride back to Van with CP and Professor Prawns and a blown transmission with only two gears? Fuck yaaaah.

Seshin in Whistler

So don’t come to my house in East Van Sunday night cause I’m in Whister closing out KLC’s infamous Creation Station (at Function Junction) in some serious saunasession style. You know the deets, bring a towel! What I hear is that Prawnsie and CP will be out too so you know there’s gonna be something freestyle serious

Summer heat freestyles

I’m completely stoked about our recent summer sessions! We made it through the heat for some low-key saunasessions with help from PBS, CP and Unity crew. Epic freestyles! Last night we slayed ’em with the freestyle bike at the PNE and Deuce Lite HQ.

Check out some details (like the premiere of the freestyle bike and our night with CP) over at Professor Prawns Presents.

The cold nights are back and we know you need to sweat! We got some dope locations lined up, so get ready for fall sauna season!

Basscoast Saunasessions & Woodhead live at Slay Bay!

We just rolled the truck back from Squamish! Holy fuck, Basscoast!

The police were so stoked about the saunatruck they insisted we get a tow from Lions Bay up to Squamish after we hung out with them for an hour or two on the highway. By the time we got to the festival our special agents had our riverfront site marked out ready for 4 days of sweaty nights and icewater plunges. The truck was made for this. We were made for this.

All those Heatley Saunasessions

It’s been 6 months of awesome sunday nights here at One Two One Studios, and this sunday is the last time we heat it up on Heatley street! So when you’re done with Saturday night, and calling your Dad, and all the CarFree Vancouver festivities and BBQs on sunday, then it’s time for one more saunasession. Doesn’t matter what you’ve got to do first, we’ll be here after.

Tight Sweaters

We’ve been cooking up East Van something serious these last few months at Saunasessions HQ on Heatley. Only 3 sessions left in our residency at OneTwoOne Studios so come down while while we still have the luxury of 6 couches, a dance studio and the tree bar. This sunday we’re up for another late night jam like last week when we blistered up woodhead’s fingers pretty good, but I think he’s OK now. Thanks to our all-star players! Who was that guy on the bongos till 530am?

Sauna Champions

Relaxing after a great sauna victory.  Everyone's a winner!

Relaxing after a great sauna victory. Everyone’s a winner!

We can’t call it “Sauna Olympics” because they made that illegal. So the Vancouver Sauna Champions Invitational 2010 kicked off tonight with some demonstration qualifying heats. Our first event, the casual form sauna sitting was a thilling event with Megan “Sauna Hero” representing Thunder Bay besting all contenders. For sauna freestyle we had some amazing players in a exhibition round, with Khari Wendell McClelland emerging as the judges favourite. Get ready for the next set of heats . . .
