Just a quick update but wanted to thank everyone who ordered boards, other rewards, donated or shared my posts! Thanks to you I have been able to raise enough cash to keep this company moving, and got enough orders in for my boards to keep the Prince's Trust happy!
Here at Jungle HQ everything is manic! Boards strewn about the place, veneer scraps embedded in the carpet and so many sheets & crumpled up pieces of paper, not to mention the layer of sawdust that keeps topping itself up - pussycats are loving it but I'm surprised my fiancé hasn't left me!
Prototype production is finished and some testing has been going on - I am pleased to report that all boards are skating well! Now just waiting for some sun so I can get out and skate some more and take some high quality photos! Alongside all of this I am working on a Crowdfunder campaign which will be coming soon - watch this space!
After many delays and a couple of complications we have finally been able to start putting our prototypes together ahead of our Crowdfunder campaign, scheduled to launch later this month!
Its all go here at Jungle HQ - we have a new FSC Certified wood supplier, a constant supply of decorative offcuts, all essential tools and the new vacuum bag is working perfectly. Working with a mix of Ash, Oak and reclaimed Canadian Hard Maple veneers, the task now is to finish 3 new boards combining the amazing qualities of these 3 wood species - great core strength coupled with amazing shock, water and rot resistance!
