It has been great to discover and explore your craftwork. My daughter is new to skateboarding but she has been into drawing and painting for a few years. I am enjoying showing her what you do and hopefully inspiring her to see different avenues for artistic expression. And, I really appreciate you hosting this most excellent forum.

Cheers!

Thanks for the welcome! I chose my words carefully when I said she 'participated' in the competition. :-) The beginners group was for those with under 2-years of experience, and with 8-months of casual skating, her quiver of tricks was comparatively sparse. Still, she worked really hard leading up the event and is really looking forward to the next one. It has helped her to set some goals and increased her dedication. Definitely a big win!

How about your own intro Paul?

Where are you in Japan?  I spent a year outside of Nagoya in a small town called Seto.  My then fiance got to come over for 6 months doing research in Nagoya.  

On your search for a board, you've got some great choices with BDS boards. Lots of great cruiser sizes, long wheel bases, and insane art work.

I am in Kobe. I have never been to Seto, but I am sure it was an amazing experience to have. How lucky to be able to come to Japan for a year. I am not sure I would recommend settling here like I have to everyone, but it is definitely worth a visit. And, if you can settle in for 6 months or a year, it's really eye-opening.
