I was born in Grand Haven, grew up skateboarding,drawing and listen to punk rock in the 80’s. Now that I am older, I decided I needed to get back into the skate community and build a company. My main focus was to be just on skateboards, but then I thought to myself, why limit myself and my creativity. So, I added wood working to the company profile. I will be introducing custom guitar bodies, computer cases and more.
The reason the company is named 5 Mile Hill, is because I was a street skater and I loved taking on a treacherous hill road that over looked Grand Haven’s Lake Michigan beach. Plus, it’s a tribute to my home town and the skaters.
Our goal is to produce the finest products and get more involved into the community. We are trying to produce everything in Michigan and in the USA.
