New Beginnings - Seeing 2020 πŸ‘€

Just by happenstance, I started operating online May 1st, 2018, and it just so happened I opened Never Ever Board's first retail store on May 1st, 2019 after just a few weeks of hard work. πŸ”¨ 🎨

It was difficult outfitting a store for the first time and understanding what needs to be done to actually make it look like a store, but slowly but surely it all came together, as it has each day blossoming and evolving to the ultimate version that aligns with our brand. 🏬 πŸ„ 🌊

A new year, a great time to reflect, we've been in business now forΒ 20 months, a little over a year and a half, still a baby so still counting by months lol. πŸ‘Ά ❀️ 

Here are a few highlights from the year thinking back...Β 

Earlier just before opening as we were picking up some things for the shop from someone through facebook marketplace on Oak Island, we ran into a real-life American Ninja Warrior! 😎

We set up shop at various events, the former check6 brewery, the Oak Island Labor Day Surf-Off which we helped sponsor and had a number of FREE events at the skate park with FREE food, entry and lots of fun! Hosted our first tournament at the skate park and gave away some cool prizes! πŸ” 🌭

Recently we helped push to have the skate park open to the public for free and by a unanimous decision from our town council we made this possible! The kids are loving it and the park is averaging about 20 to 25 kids per day, adding one more cool thing to do on Oak Island. πŸ›ΉΒ
