In parallel to the program that brought the Comet FSM in to the world, Comet Skateboard’s new Cometogether Design & Test Pilot Program for 2013 has been announced. This program will offer riders (from around the world) the opportunity to take part in collectively designing a new skateboard shape for the next step in
world domination coastboarding fun! Comet has created a forum on their site in which riders can suggest ideas and discuss what the final shape should be.
To keep everything in order, Comet is offering a limited number of Test Pilot Packages for purchase (somewhat like a “membership fee”) that will include the following:
Test Pilot Package:
1. Limited edition Prototype Skateboard
2. Limited edition Cometogether T-shirt
3. Test Rider Survey
4. Final New Release Skateboard
The purchase of a package will help “kickstart” the design process and ensure that only a crew with the best intentions will be involved with the process. But wait, there’s more! As an added bonus, you can also add discounted Caliber Trucks and/or Volante Wheels to your order!
We’re plenty stoked to see Comet considering (and implementing) the thoughts/designs/ideas of the skateboarding community before their own. Something radical this way comes! If you’d like to read the official announcement for the program, click this bunch of blue lines!
