What we will we do will your help??
The Waveskate project has vaulted along at blazing speeds, but to reach our goals, we have three steps to complete.
We need to complete the Waveskate bracket, which attaches to the bottom of the surfboard. We are working with Vista Industrial to design, and produce these new Waveskate Brackets, and are exited with the results.. The newly designed brackets, will be lighter, stronger, easier to use then our original prototypes,and more pleasing to the eye. see diagram below:
The Waveskate project also needs to finish the production of our custom Catalyst wheels. Specifically designed for this project, the 70mm prototypes have worked amazingly well in all terrain. Pure distribution in Oceanside Ca,,is presently assisting us with thew new wheel designs. The end result will be a smooth, fast, SAFE ride on our Waveskates.
Our focus has been the hurdles of production and design, and we have yet to ramp up our website and video production. Our last step in this project will be to create a up to date website, and to truly document the capabilities of these incredible boards. These steps will require hiring a professional production team. Again, with your help these goals can be reached.
We thank you for checking the Waveskate out! Give us a hand on this incredible ride!
Risks and challenges
The most exciting aspect of the Waveskate project is its market position
The first and only-
Of course that brings new obstacles. It is important that we are able showcase the Waveskates attributes and promote ourselves in a positive manner. My back round in Sports Team Management will come in handy in, building a team to be the PR face of Waveskate
We strongly believe Waveskate will experience huge initial growth, and keeping ahead of demand, and production will be paramount, since the surfboards take up to 6 weeks in production. We have are relieved to have an experienced office manager (Mrs. Jennifer Meyer) to handle this first wave of growth.Mrs. Meyer handled these same tasks for Envy skateboards, and is more than up to the tasks including arranging and shipping the rewards to our backers.
We have seen firsthand, incredible interest in the project. People flock the Waveskate wherever it goes. It is receiving media interest as well, and a feature story is set to hit stands this summer!
This is our Families pride and joy, and hopefully, our future as well. Thank you again
