We all have that burning fire within us, which always pushes us beyond limits. That fire can either burn us or direct towards a vision if we are focused enough. If all our energies work in a sync and in focused manner on what we want to create, than the fire will turn fierce and propel towards it with full force.
This is what the graphic represents, it represents us - 'The Piso Team'. We had started the journey with skateboarding almost a decade ago in 2013 during the Third Eye tour and this is where it has led us to :). In last decade and also today not a single day has gone where there were no challenges. Every day it was like skate to survive, keep pushing and pushing and pushing. It was and is an amazing journey where constantly we are on our toes on how we can do better than what we did yesterday.
All our team members have this vision of spreading the joy of skateboarding to as many people as possible. The potential which skateboarding has to uplift a community in a positive and a healthy way is phenomenal! We started back then with skateboarding, and are now soon going to start a brand new chapter in Piso. We are hoping one day skateboarding will transform the world into a better place to live and skate.
This graphic is dedicated to all the team members of Piso and also to those who helped when we had nothing. The Lovely Skate Community, which always believed and backed us in our crucial phases. Thank you everyone for showering us with your love and support. All our writers like our OG homie Anveer Mehta (Founder - Skateable spaces) who made sure our website was always interactive and fresh. The designers who have worked with us like Shrey Sawant, Joshua Kennedy...thank you so much for adding value to our vision. Special thanks to Shreyas for his valuable contribution in our crucial and challenging phases. Last but not the least, our OG designer MALCOLM REBELLO for crafting out this design to perfection, thank you so much Malcolm baab, full Piso team bows down to your efforts and the way you designed it.
Below are our core team members, who over the past few years have worked superrrr hard selflessly, at times without expecting anything in return towards making all this happen. Loongggg way to go guys, lets keep pushing!
'This graphic is for you guys! Regardless of what is written for tomorrow, I as a founder of Piso am privileged to work with such an amazing team. I cannot ask for anything more than this in my life. Really grateful for everything. You are a dream team and I am honored to work with you guys, Lets keep pussshingggg!'
'I believe that in order to become a good skateboarder one needs to put himself in a community which inspires him and pushes his progression. Piso has given me all that and much more. It feels great to be able to communicate freely with my fellow team members and discuss our opinions on/fine-tune: products, various projects and other skateboarding-related activities. Afterall, we are here for skateboarding and skateboarding is here for us! Piso always wants to provide what is best for the people and community which makes me proud to wear the logo on my t-shirt. In addition to that: it reminds me that I am part of a team which resonates on the same frequency, is deeply connected, has similar interests and has an unstoppable driving force to reach the ultimate goal. People say it all the time but it's true... Just remember to have fun out there! Don't take skateboarding too seriously and remember why you started doing it in the first place!'
'Piso to me has grown to be one of the backbones of the skateboarding community in India. It cares about the well-being of the community and its individual skaters as much or more as it cares about itself as a skateboard business. Working with Piso has very possibly sustained me as a skater. I do not know what I would've done or how I would have been able to keep skating and keep pushing my limits if it wasn't for the support I got from it.'
'I have no words to say actually, I do not know what I would have been doing if Piso was not there. I remember getting my first mobile phone, my first scooter through working with Piso. I am able to contribute financially to my family and also skate and have fun with the team. Working with Piso is not really a work, we are more like a family :). No one has any designated work here, everyone does what needs to be done without having any discrimination against any type of work. Everyone of us have mopped floors, have become delivery boys, have developed new products, made our own furniture, rather each and every small part in Piso is efficiently crafted by us. Piso is home for me :)'
