Special Thanks To
The community:
It's super hard to explain in words to you guys how excited I am that this is finally happening, I am incredibly grateful for the support and love this project has gotten.
It's been about a year and a half now since I started on the first designs for what would eventually become the Alyssia, and it's been a heck of a journey going from design,
to prototyping, to changes, to the final design you guys see now. I truly hope that everyone who joins in receives a board worth all the patience and generosity you've given,
and I hope that the Alyssia is worth as much to you as it really is to me.

Once again, I thank all of you, and a special thanks to the Sneakbox Design team for partnering up with me, I genuinely could not have done any of this without all of your support.

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Grats, it really is a beautiful board! I'm hoping to sneak a order in for one myself before the limit is hit, either way though GLWGB!

GB has ended!

I want to thank everyone who joined, truly thank you so much, I don't know how much I've said it but I honestly can't say it enough so thank you again and again and again

I'm incredibly lucky to have this community come together to make this a reality for me, I can't wait for the day the Alyssia gets into your hands and I'm looking forward so much to seeing the pics and everyone's builds!

I will be providing monthly updates, first update will be when we put the order in/pay the invoice so keep a lookout!

Thank you again everyone, and I hope you're all having a wonderful December/holiday!

Update 1

I missed the update on invoice payment! Apologies! Sneakbox paid the invoice to DDS back in December

I've completed purchasing accessories (gaskets, screwdrivers, microfiber cloth, etc) and will packing them on my end ahead of time before shipping them to Sneakbox to speed up final packing

DDS has informed us they won't be able to begin machining until after LNY, will update here once I get news that machining has started
