Elvis has left the…..beach?

After a grueling Vegas schedule, Elvis, aka BubbaC John, snuck out of town and headed to Mori for some fun in the sun. ¬†Surrounded by adoring fans, he agreed to play some classic tunes before catching some waves. ¬† No show would be complete without his amazing Bubbettes! ¬† BubbaC was heard saying he would be back to compare his longboard with Mori Estate Manager QUENCH Spotter’s longboard.¬†
