The Boardr 2014 Year in Review

The Boardr 2014 Year in Review

Posted by Rob Meronek on Wednesday, December 31, 2014

2014 was our first full year of being in business after we started this little skateboard gathering of a company in late 2013. HiDefJoe has the video recap and I've got a walk down short term memory lane here for 2014. What a year it was of whipping around the world for all these skateboard adventures from South Africa to Denmark to Canada to China to all over America. Thanks to everyone who was a part of it along the way. 2015 will be much of the same and more. See you around out there on the wood and wheels.
