Tell us about your business.I built my first longboard in 2008 for myself. In April of 2009 I was laid off from my job and decided to turn this into my livelihood. I started selling through friends, by word of mouth, then onto weekend farmer and flea markets and currently Pike Place Market in Seattle.
