After airing on ABC’s Shark Tank, the Spooner gang received a few requests to tell their story at some local schools. Tierra Del Sol’s band teacher invited us to speak to the Middle School students on Career Day. For hours kids were spinning, twisting, rocking and flipping. The students all seemed to like the idea of the board improving their balance and coordination skills so they can be that future surfer, skater, or snowboarder they’ve always dreamed to be. Students listened intently to the guys recall their Shark Tank experience and how they cultivated their business from a dog igloo to what it is today . The Spooner crew explained to the middle schoolers that it’s important to keep an open mind and stay determined, since this company was an accident after all! Ultimately, Career Day was a fun success!
