Welcome 2017, and a Happy New Year to you all. We are proud to make some major announcements and goals for 2017. We want to take a few moments to share these with you, and what to expect from us in the coming year.
First, we are excited to announce that we will be setting up a new online store with new designs that will be based in Japan. We will offer the same great service we have now, but with a focus on designs that appeal to customers in that region. We are looking to accomplish this in the first quarter of 2017, and will announce our soft launch date.
Second, we are rolling out some new designs for 2017 that will also launch in the first quarter. These include some designs from Kohala Surf Co and Haakeng. Our late 2016 designs will still be available through the third quarter and phased out.
Lastly, we are proud to announce that Haakeng Co, our US branch, will finally find a new home in Florida. After much discussion, we have decided to base in the Sunshine State. The new company will also launch in the first quarter of this year.
We are excited about moving forward with these endeavors and we look forward to a prosperous year.
