Alright guys, here's the situation, right now I'm sitting in a hotel room in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina... it's 25 degrees outside and everything is covered in a thick layer of frozen ice and snow. The plane that was supposed to get me to St. Pete yesterday, has been grounded and I am stuck 600 miles away from home. All thanks to a Winter Storm named Leon.
(Insert heavy sigh here....)
This is a tough pill to swallow, because we were supposed to open our online shop to all our email subscribers at 8am this morning. Due to things I can not change, like being snowed in, we have to delay the VIP launch until tomorrow morning, January 31st at 8am. (Going on the notion that I can fly home today...)
Since our email subscribers get 24 hours of early access to shop the store before the general public, we have to delay the public launch of the online shop until Saturday, February 1st at 8am.
This is nowhere near ideal, because no ones wants to push the launch of their new business back a day, however, as an entrepreneur I have learned that you have to embrace change and adapt accordingly. I've also learned that nothing is possible without the support and encouragement of the people around you. Nick and I are so thankful to have such an awesome community that supports our dream! You are the reason we have worked so hard to make this launch happen. You are the reason we pushed through those long nights and tough times and I can't thank you enough for standing behind us.
When the online shop opens, we will have 11 awesome handcrafted skateboards for sale along with some LongLine apparel and swag. If you haven't signed up for the early VIP launch, you still can at signup.longlineskateboards.com. This gives you access to shop for 24 hours before the general public!
We can't thank you enough for all your support, encouragement and patience.
Nick + Kelli Lambiase
Founders of LongLine Skateboards
