Fun boards? Long boards? Kite or wake boards? If they fit your ceiling height and have two parallel fins, then hell yeah, them too:
I had this board that stood in a nook right by the entrance of my apartment. It was my go-to board at the time so that's why it was close the door. But it was just standing there leaning on one side, looking like any board in storage would, so then I thought maybe it would look cool if it was hanging right there, sort of like an art piece. I wanted something that would be vertical because the space was limited, but still be functional and easy to use. I also wanted something that would not be an eyesore on its own. Nothing out there was a good solution for what I wanted, so being a product developer, I started to play around and design a rack that would do just that and actually hide from sight so it could give that floating effect. I was so surprised by the outcome and seeing my board "floating" on the wall, in a minimal, clean, and fun way, and I thought that maybe others would like to display and store their boards like that too. And that's how the AIR was born.
So why Kickstarter?
Kickstarter is a great platform to help raise the funds necessary for start ups. And the first round of full mass production requires a large amount of capital. We have produced all the necessary tooling and also a small amount of prototypes that were tested by a group of users and now we are ready for the first mass production. And in return, you, our backers, will have a chance to get the AIRs at a fraction of future retail prices, before overhead costs. And the more we raise here, the easier and faster production will be.
What type is your wall? Drywall? Concrete? No worries... suitable for any type and all the bits are included:
Risks and challenges
There are hardly any risks involved since most of the challenges have been met:
The products have been overseen by top engineers that supervised the tooling process. The tooling and molds for the products have been already produced and the products are fully functioning to the highest standards. Suppliers have been selected and are awaiting the green light for mass production. The products have passed rigorous international tests by top safety and standards institutions and have been approved for both commercial and personal use. Patents have been granted and others are pending in advanced stages. Logistics and shipping have been sorted and chosen and everything is pretty much.. ready to go.
The only risk that is uncertain is the time factor. according to our calculations we are providing enough time, for the campaign, production and shipping, so that you can have your product delivered on time. However, the unexpected may happen and delays that are out of control do occur sometimes, as machines may break down and shipments get stalled for various reasons.
But we are making every effort possible so that you will have an awesome product and delivered on time.
