On Tuesday we hit 200 posts on the Progression Blog. Now, two hundred may not seem like a massive number in these days of constant news feeds and unless streams of content but we have always tried to focus on unique and original content rather than just reposting every kiteboarding press release or the latest pro riders video from Brazil!
