Welcome to yet another week of Comacan Questions, we’ve enjoyed bringing stories and information about other businesses and even a few spotlight interviews with skaters themselves. We are beyond stoked to be sharing our 30th interview this week. This week we spoke with some friends of ours from the Northern Ontario skateboard scene. Input from the community is important to us, we asked who you, our readers and supporters wanted to hear from. There was an outpouring of names, some of which we just spoke with Slipz Wax (Interview #28) and DaveTheBeard (Interview #29), however we have lots more on the way, directly selected based on your input. With that in mind we are proud to share another supporter selected interview this week, this week were talking to Success Goons.

The name I honestly do not remember where I came up with this name, but I fell in love with it as soon as it came to my brain.
3. Do you sell products?
Yes, we do we sell hoodies, T-shirts, skateboards and we’re working on something top-secret right now.

I wanted to make a skateboard family where everyone is excepted, where everyone has a chance to express who they truly are and have no shame in it!!!
6. What’s your dream with Success Goons?
My dreams with Success Goons is to simply give back and support other skaters/people who can’t afford to skateboard.

My favourite part I got so many hard to choose but has to be giving back to the community and just hanging out with the homies, having a great time skateboarding.
9. What does skateboarding mean to you?
To me skateboarding means having freedom and not being scared to step out of your comfort zone and overall, just having a great time there is no other feeling better than being on a board
10. Anyone you’d like to thank?
I would like to thank all of my team riders, my graphic designer, my mother RIP and my family for helping me in the beginning. Also, I would like to say thank you to the guy I look up too, Westley st Onge. I’d like to thank him for helping me learn about business, always talking with me, showing me a lot. He has been motivating me since I was 15 years old, I used to go over and we talked for hours about business and all the ideas we had, so thank you very much Westley.
