TransWorld Business and IASC have teamed up again to take a comprehensive look at the state of skateboarding. We're reaching out to specialty skate retailers from across the globe to get a sense of how healthy the industry is and where it's heading.

The survey only takes a few minutes and will provide a ton of great information to better manage our businesses. Please keep in mind that your privacy is very important to us, and we will keep your identity confidential when analyzing and reporting data. Those who participate will receive a personal copy of the study's results. The results will also be presented at the upcoming IASC Skatebarding Summit, May 14-16, at the Westin South Coast Plaza hotel in Costa Mesa, California.

Thanks for your time. Click here for more information on the 2014 IASC Skateboarding Summit.
