Did you see #IndoBoard Man Hunter Joslin yesterday on the #TodayShow doing his guerrilla marketing tactics? In 1998, small business man Hunter Joslin officially began his business in a spare bedroom in Melbourne Beach, Florida with 10 thousand dollars he borrowed from the bank. Since there wasn’t much room in the bedroom, we’d line the rollers up in the kitchen (!!!) with good friend Lance Albers as we three meticulously placed the stickers centered on the rollers. If we were off by a millimeter – Hunter would let you know it! As the business grew, so did the cardboard boxes that contained the boards and rollers which literally took over the house. Yes, I think it’s fair to say we once lived in a cardboard box. In all sincerity, I hope that the Indo Board has brought you a sense of joy, a healthier body, a sense of confidence, and a few good laughs because, essentially, that is Hunter’s purpose despite the unconventional marketing tactics. Thank you, Tom Dugan of Eastern Surf Magazine for letting us use your photos http://www.easternsurf.com/. Happy day everyone. – Georgette

Soul Surfer, opening in theatres today, is based on Bethany Hamilton’s true life story. Bethany was attacked by a 14 foot tiger shark on October 31, 2003. The attack left Bethany with a severed left arm.
We are so stoked that Indo Board was there from the beginning helping Bethany in her quest to become a Professional Surfer after the loss of her arm. She continues to surf and inspire people all over the world. Go Bethany! Keep surfing! You are amazing!
You give us hope.
Much Aloha and Mahalo goes out to Tom Hamilton, Bethany’s dad, for his adamant support of the fact that Indo Board played a part in Bethany’s training. Indo Board was well placed in several scenes in the film largely due to Tom’s influence in the production of the film.
Go see Soul Surfer. You’ll leave the theatre inspired.
Lots of moans, groans, grunts, and even a few roars as Indo Board President, Hunter Joslin keeps good form under the expert advice of Certified Athletic Trainer, Vinny Comiskey. This is Chapter 23.
Hunter is a surfer, skater, snowboarder, wakeboarder, Indo Board Master and all around extreme athlete who had too many skateboard falls during the 1970′s Dogtown and Z-Boys era. The skateboard falls left him with osteoarthritis of his right hip. Follow Hunter as he video blogs his way beginning with pre-op jitters and back to competitive form.
