500 on the 31st

Well this wasn't planned at 500th blog post falling on the final day of 2009...shit, this better be prolific.

'09 has been the biggest year of my life; board building transformed from me chasing people and building what i thought everyone wanted, to me letting it go and allowing my creativity to be what brings new opportunities and new shapes.  That alone has freed me more than I could ever explain, because at the very core of building boards and all of this stuff, its just plain what I love to do.

There are lots of good things happening already for the first month of 2010, there'll be a couple articles coming out shortly that I am extremely flattered by, I set up a newsletter to send out info on deals and sales and stock boards for sale, and lots of new models coming down the pipe for you guys to scope out and ride...not to mention some pretty cool shirts too (new designs) that'll be cheap, 'cause expensive shirts idn't quite where my head is at :)

A few other big things are goin' down this year, but i'll wait to explain those ones 'till later...until then, thankyou guys for allowing me to do the work that I do, and giving me the feedback that I need to keep pushing it forward!
