The Boardr Skateboard Company Interview
I often reach out to my favorite skateboarding companies from time to time for interviews. I love to establish relationships with the movers and shakers of the industry, but if I'm being completely honest, I do it because it gives me the opportunity to meet and soak in the creativeness and knowledge of those who shape skateboarding and its culture around me. As I'm sure you've gathered from the articles title, today's interview is with The Boardr Skateboarding Company.
The Boardr's goal is to bring Authority and Authenticity to Skateboarding as a whole. They achieve this through their website, events, and more. I first heard of the Boardr when they were a part of a Zumiez contest I competed in back a few years ago in McKinney. Fast forward to now and I got to interview the raddest dude behind it all, Rob Meronek. Let's dive in.
What originally got you into skateboarding?
What is The Boardr?
Where did the idea for The Boardr come from?
For people out there wanting to start their own business, what advice would you have for them?
What future company goals do you have/are most excited for in the next 5 years?
I'm so pumped for everything The Boardr is doing. Independent skate shops, board brands, and companies like Rob's are the reason skateboarding thrives. I'd like to personally thank Rob for keeping skateboarding flourishing and for taking time out of his busy schedule to be interviewed.
The Boardr's next two events are going to be in Texas (home of Shred Social, though a little more south). That's the Hot Wheels Junior Series in Austin, Texas and the Grind For Life Series in Houston, Texas. You can get more information on both events HERE.
