Regarding me and my surfboard business

Regarding surfboard companies that produce their product overseas and their business tactics… When you go to Asia and produce thousands and thousands of units…. you get them really, really cheep. the trouble is, you still have to sell them. When you find it hard to sell your 60 thousand units in the time you expected […]

Flow Skateboard Magazine Interview

I’m not the type to froth over me, myself, and I, or any of the things I’ve accomplished. In some cases I actually talk shit about myself… but as a Thank You to my friends at Flow Skateboard Magazine for all their hard work, and for my friends who are not living here in the […]

Also, we’re already looking forward […]

When we see the latest design, we feel lost until we’ve ridden one. Sometimes we’re patient enough to borrow a board […]
