Side Hustle

ContactBoards

Founder & Inventor · 2012 – Present

The contactboard is a newly shaped skateboard for beginner through professional level boarders to use to better defy gravity. The patented shape lends itself beyond a skateboard and can be applied to other board sports on snow or water for example, which will revolutionize the board sports industry. Key accomplishments include securing the utility patent (9,764,219) for the contactboard, designing and creating rapid prototypes to correct measurements and angles, and creating full sized boards out of 3–D printed material and wood.
