A Word From Michael Brooke
| No Comment
It’s finally spring and things are rolling. This is the biggest Buyer’s Guide we’ve ever published. We decided to just push things a little bit further this year by doing eight covers as well. It’s funny, but back in 2004, when I launched the first Buyer’s Guide, I had no idea it would mushroom into something this big. As we head into spring, there’s a sense that something truly “BIG” is happening in the world of longboarding. The above photo was taken last fall at Toronto’s Board Meeting. Almost 1,000 people showed up, and it was truly a magical experience. The mind boggles as to how many might show up this year! Speaking of mindboggling, we have a huge amount of new product to present in this guide. We know it can get overwhelming, but just let your imagination run wild. There is something here for everyone.
My sincere thanks for picking up this guide. If you have some time, visit our website and click the link to our readership survey. You can win a $500 shopping spree

I’d also like to extend a huge debt of gratitude to my designer, Markintosh, and copy editor, Jonathan Harms. Their efforts are truly extraordinary.
