Custom for Evan Amakata.
A well deserved early Xmas gift for himself for closing on a real estate deal that is his biggest to date.
He & I were introduced through a mutual friend @ & happen to be close in age.
This marks Evan’s first true custom, modern performance board, coming off years of styling on a longboard.
As we talked about his board needs, the conversation led to how important it is at our age to not be intimidated by crossing bridges for the first time & to challenge ourselves outward. The tendency as we enter into our 40’s & 50’s is to want to be drawn towards comfort.
I know because I catch myself doing it every day. Which is fine but too much cruising to the point of stagnation is a sure way to start dying early.
Congratulations Evan on a milestone closing of a deal as well as doing a great job at keeping the momentum moving foreward.
Completely honored 🙏🏽 to make boards for this caliber of human being🍺.
