    Loaded Labs Interview with Longboard Envy

    We recently had the chance to chat with the folks at Longboard Envy about the Loaded Labs Menopause project. Check out their introduction below, and be sure to read the full interview here!

    "Product research and development has usually been a highly secretive thing—companies would produce prototypes within their factories, and only reveal the products to inside members. This is a totally founded strategy—many products, in the early days of the development, are flawed and can tarnish the reputation of a company if revealed to the mass public. Sometimes, prototypes are released to the public in the last few months of development, but this is mostly as a marketing strategy and hype-building exercise. That means that realistically speaking, the consumers don’t have a direct influence on an end product.

    Many of us dream to partake in this secret research and development that happens behind the scenes at many skateboard companies- I know that when I was a wee little grom, I slobbered at the thought of being let in on company secrets. If only companies would tell us what happens in their secret Area 51 warehouses…

    Oh wait, Loaded does."

All your efforts are greatly appreciated and will help us create better gear.

    We’ve had some time to digest all the data and wanted to share some of our findings with you.
