Over the weekend during some rad waves, I got to learn a little more about Vintagemay.
Matt Scott, a proud sponsor goes behind the scene and tells us a little more…
(D) How long has Vintagemay been operational?
(VM) Vintagemay has been established as a fresh new online store since May 2010.
(D) Where does the name Vintagemay come from?
(VM) I guess it comes from the idea of the Vintage style photos and finally developed into fashion industry. The Label also started in May, so 2 and 2 make Vintagemay.
(D) Sky’s the limit for vintagemay, what’s next?
(VM) I’m in negotiations with several Australian and international chain stores at present and more to come.
(D) What are Vintagemay’s hopes and dreams for Forster?
(VM) Forster has been a good base for my office as there is always fun waves and frothing groms to surf with when I need a break from design.
Heaps of Groms have been helping out and about and have been rewarded with some paid work in the warehouse and showroom. They seem to love learning and seeing what comes there way, I’m happy to help and keeps them out of strife.
(D) Why does Vintagemay support bodyboarding?
(VM) Vintagemay supports bodyboarding, as it has always been apart of my life. Growing up with Jake Stone and seein’ how far he has come in bodyboarding keeps me motivated to succeed, with my dreams.
(D) What does the future hold for Vintagemay and Bodyboarding?
(VM) Vintagemay is not a bodyboard brand by any means. Once I get a team together, it will be skaters , surfers, professional athletes of all manners, however as bodyboard is one of my passions and have grown up around it, I will not hesitate to have some booga’s on my team!
Having the FTBA comps are helpful enough for me at the moment – it’s always good to have a local following and support the community no matter how big the label gets.
(D) Thanks again Matty.
