Evolution (Workshop Photo Story)

It's been 365 days since our Kickstarter campaign closed on our goal. We were elated and over-whelmed. We were to spend the next-almost-year working on this project, refining, re-iterating and re-developing our recycled wine-barrel longboard to the best of our abilities. It was hard. It was exciting. We failed, a lot. We learned even more. By early March this year, we had every hand-built board off to it's new owner and a workshop readied for some serious production. This weekend, we looked back over the last year to see how far our boards have come. They're almost entirely different beasts (as are we!). 

Enough with the talk, here's a photo story from the workshop.
