What a Launch Week!

Posted by Ben Forman (Creator)

WOW - What a launch week! We reached our $10k Kickstarter goal in 4 days (and then doubled it in 6, tripled it in 9)!!! Thanks to all the ZBoard supporters out there, we also received 110k youtube views and 1200 facebook page likes. 

Adding to the fun was the feature on Yahoo's new webshow, "The Future is Now."

THANK YOU to everyone who's backed and gotten the word out about the ZBoard!

We've added the Kickstarter Custom Pro Special to the list of rewards. This reward will allow the backer to select the hand-painted deck design, battery box color, and customized engraving. We've sold two so far and I can tell you that one of the designs is going to look awesome.

Several backers have asked to be informed about the manufacture of their board and yes - we plan to update this page with behind-the-scenes pictures of our manufacturing process, along with some sneak peeks of special editions. Stay tuned.

Thanks again for your backing!

      Billy. If you pay the $495 now, you will not have to pay anything else at a later date (except for shipping if this is an international order).

      If you stick with the $100 reward, you will have to pay $50 shipping when the board is released (if this is a domestic order).
