Awesome Jim!    We honeymooned in Thailand.   Beautiful place -- I don't recall the road conditions too well, but I'm sure you'll have much to say about that soon!

Great ride, and great cause.

I´ve been offer full sponsorship from Rollsrolls, Subsonicskateboards and Hackbrett. Hackbrett will make me a custom board if I want.
Rayne has been offering me 40% off on a dee-lite.

Anyone out there how can help me in which board I shall choose? Have someone been riding subsonics for long-distance?

I talked to Hackbrett yesterday and this is what he said.

we dont build lowriders ourselves, we could propably get landyachtz to sponsor an evo or a dually or a spud or a switch. we could then make it light by replacing some of the wood with foam and carbon wrap it. we can make them even lighter than the carbon evo.

What do you guys think about that, is it a good idea or should I go for a raven or a rollsrolls woody?

I haven´t decided yet, but if it will be a landy I will ride with a hybrid switch with foam and carbon. Anyone who´s ride this board?

Some days ago I got a pair of loaded slidegloves 4:th generation from my sponsor life on a board. I tried them for about one hour and they split in three places. Is it crappy quality or these gloves or did I just have som bad luck?

Now the flight is booked, we are leaving for Thailand 12 of jan and I´m so stoked about this.

With me I have my girlfriend Maria and she will ride by my side on inlines.

Thanks to all my sponsors. If it wasn´t for you this trip would be impossible. I can´t thank you enough.

That rocks Jim, Thailand is such a beautiful country.    Can't wait to see some shots or vids or whatever, just a few words when you feel inclined.   Personally I'd have a hard time thinking about the internet when I was anywhere near a beach or any kind of tropical place!

All the Best!!

Today I had mine first tv interview with tv4, a little bit scary, but I think it went well.
