What up, I’m Billy!
The story behind this site...
The Covid-19 pandemic was at it’s peak.
Bordem got the best of me, so I decided to buy a surfskate.
But I found a major issue while researching.
I came across a bunch of websites that claimed they ‘reviewed’ it…
When in reality, all they did was read the specifications on the company’s product page, write some fluff, and claim they ‘reviewed’ it.
It was so frustrating because you could tell they didn’t own it! I was left even more confused than when I started.
So that’s when I thought of the idea for this website.
To create a valuable source of skate & surf reviews based on actual experience.
If I wouldn’t recommend it to my best friend, I won’t recommend it to you.

My love for boardsports…
Started when my dad brought home a crappy skateboard from Costco.
I was about 5 years old at the time.
The next day I skated for hours. I remember being upset when my mom called me in for dinner.
Fast forward and most of my teen years were spent either skating in my driveway or at my local skatepark.
I remember the feeling of landing my first kickflip. The amount of time it took me to land it was ridiculous, but I loved every second of it.
That’s me at 12…
I started filming skateboarding with my friends. We figured out how to get the footage onto a computer and edit it.
I sent a video of me skating to PacSun and they ended up sponsoring me.
Free skate gear and a 20% discount, what more could I ask for in life?!
It wasn’t the most legit sponsorship, but it really showed me the power of the internet.
After my contract was up, I drifted away from board sports for a bit.
The pressure of landing tricks for a video was stressful.
I was burnt out.
After going through the motions of high school, I really felt lost. I probably only skated a few times.
Once I got my license, I started surfing on the weekends. This re-sparked my love for board sports and made me realized why I started in the first place.
Whether you’re skating or surfing, it’s all about having fun!
24 and skate/surf any chance I get!
The ability to hop on a board and immediately forget about reality is something that’s so addicting. It’s my form of therapy.
Here’s a little barrel I got a few winters ago. I live in New Jersey, so the surf is best in fall/winter.
If you made it this far…
