Vote for Flatspot Longboard Shop: Small Business BC Awards 2016

Flatspot Longboard Shop is now 3 years old! We missed out on the Small Business BC Awards by only a small margin last year and are hoping to score a win this time around. Your vote helps!

Mischa Chandler, Founder and Managing Partner of Flatspot, is both a friend and now we’re partners. After working with Flatspot as a consultant in their first two years, I have now joined on to support them as a partner as I believe a strong local shop makes for an even stronger community.

Please have a look at the Small Business BC Awards currently under way. If you agree, please show Flatspot your support. Skateboard retail is really about skateboard community and Mischa and Flatspot put it first as part of operating the shop.

Gbemi is still putting out some the best interviews with his blogs All Around Skate and Thane Magazine. I’m not just saying that because I have had a few interviews with him now, but because he consistently and without thanks is creating content focused on simply just being stoked on skating.

Bill Good Show Interview – Longboarders vs. Cops

Got another call to be on the Bill Good Show.

Link to the show.

As I mentioned in my previous post, my uncle listen to CKNW and I have been familiar with Bill Good for a good portion of my life. I’m stoked to be invited on again. I guess that means I’m either an easy target, on point or the only one returning their calls… as long as it’s not because I have a face for Radio!

Bill Good Show Interview – Education For Longboarders

It’s one thing to get a call from the media for a sound bite or a quote, but live is a bit unnerving sometimes. Got to be careful with your words or you can get in trouble fast. With something like longboarding, there’s a whole community of skaters counting on me not to blow it any worse then the situation already is.

Ultimately, I believe bans will do nothing, we need a strong public-private partnerships to communicate and educate for success.
