what came 1st, the donkey customer or the the donkey board maker?

from rebelboards.com (credit to barn e)

"So we put our heads together and with our combined knowledge of business, IT, water sports, and successful financial investments, we came up with three key concepts for how to approach this business venture. First is to shape the boards in Asia to save cost. Secondly, kick the industry standard and go with epoxy construction. Finally, make it an online business for less overhead. With our unconventional approach, that makes us a “rebel” in a sense, we decided to call our product, “RebelBoards”; thus, our company was born.

It took six months of research to answer our first challenge, to find a reliable manufacturer and business partner in Asia.. Then, after coming up with our logos, we ordered seven different sample boards. When we unpacked them, first impressions were good as we had a unique product, epoxy boards with stringers, very cool."
