Over 3 million served

13 Jun, 2011

I started in August 2007. In November 2009 passed 1 million, in October 2010 it passed 2 million and now only 8 months later the 3 million mark has arrived!  What an insane journey this blog has become.  When I began writing, I never expected to become a leader in snowboard blogs and reviews.  It’s an honor to have the respect of fellow snowboarders around the world coming to this website.  And since I turned 28 yesterday, it’s also a great birthday present!

Thanks to everyone who has come to my website and read what I’ve written.  I hope over the past years that you’ve found it useful and informational for snowboarding.  Thank you all!
