A sad fact that we all have to face at this time of year in the Northern Hemisphere: winter is nearly over.
Instead of crying into our pillows and spending our days waxing our snowboards, watching videos of ANYONE shredding on the youtube and vimeo, sleeping in till noon because mornings are no fun when there’s no snow… NO MORE. we decided to take action. We decided to invest in a shiny new longboard and lose our longboard virginity, dust off the skates and get ready for summer! Here’s what went down…
