First of all, I just want to say thank you to all you regular readers of the site, you’ve really made this site something I look forward to updating everyday. Moving forward, I’m going to devote even more time to the site because, well, this baby is still growing at an alarming rate. 170,000 views in the past two months is no joke! Big thanks to all the sponsors/advertisers for helping offset my site costs.

In honor of the huge increase of spam in the comments section (none of which actually shows up thanks to the wonderful akismet plugin) and the appearance of spam text messages on my freakin cell phone (how?) I am heading to the spam capital of the world (the other kind!). If anyone needs me I’ll be getting tanned and jacked in Maui for the week.

I’ve pre-written a few posts, so there will continue to be new content posted while I’m away. As soon as I return I’ll post up the Project #3 gallery (had some great submissions already)! Oh, and keep your eyes peeled, I’ve got a bunch of fun stuff planned for the upcoming months.


Jeff Hamada is the Founder and Editor of Booooooom. He lives and works in Vancouver.

  • The growth is good to hear.. so congrats on creating a successful site.
    Hope the trip goes good and look forward to seeing the submissions thus far for project #3

  • I expect some pics of you catchin’ perfect lefts.
    (That’s some nerdy surfer talk.)

  • Enjoy your holiday and congrats on the heavy readership. This site deserves it!
