First impression is that it was well worth the wait for the 2nd Generation Boosted Board (6 month delays due to battery safety issues….good call Boosted Boards) and even more fun than expected.
Even as someone who grew up bombing the San Francisco Bay Area’s Piedmont Hills as a youth, there is an adjustment to this board for sure. Being under power is a very different experience and the Boostedboard Dual+ (most powerful available) packs some serious torque and stopping power. But after a few weeks and only one “minor” fall, I am much more confident. But even with the new sensation of being under power I was immediately surprised at just how stable the board is at its top speed of 22MPH.
That’s about it for now as I will probably do a full review of the 2nd Generation Boosted Board in full later but wanted to share my initial thoughts.
I have decided to start posting my videos on Vimeo.com in addition to YouTube. With the recent news of Vayner Media starting a relationship with Vimeo.com, it seemed like a good idea to get in now.

I have heard, that it is a much more polished (artsy for lack of a better term) level of content creation and that seems true from my initial impression. I think it will be a good resource to see what people are creating and look forward to using it.
The only problem so far is the limit to how much you can upload each week. You can upgrade and pay each month to upload more, and I may do that, but not until I am posting enough to use the upgraded data. And this could be part of the reason the content is so good as well so maybe not a bad thing.
Have a great new year and thanks to everyone for an incredible 2016. Looking forward to some incredible things to come in 2017!!!!
This last Saturday was an emotional last day as a PGA Director of Golf. While I am excited about the next chapter in my life, I cherish the memories and relationships I have been fortunate to gain over the years.
Thanks to everyone who helped me get to where I am today and special thanks to my wife Jennifer, my family and my friends for their support. I am grateful for all the friendships I have gained over the years and appreciate all the kind words you all have shared with me over the last couple weeks. Special thanks to Michael Vanderveer and Dan Johnson for being the two best assistant pros in the biz and great friends.
I look forward to staying active in the PGA and continuing to focus on http://www.PGAjay.com. I appreciated everyone staying in touch and look forward to continuing such great friendships.
