Information about the inventor, Brian Green:

- 53 years young, married and living in San Diego. He has been inventing products as a hobby for over 25 years. Brian grew up in Connecticut ice skating on ponds, skiing, roller skating and inline skating and wanted to create a more convenient and stable way to skate that would appeal to all ability levels.

- Brian has been working on perfecting “strap in” skates for over eight years through development, prototyping and testing in collaboration with European engineers, USA designers and Asian manufactures.

- In 2013, he partnered with Bob Pollack, a San Diego Entrepreneur, who had over 30 years of retail and consumer product experience. Bob immediately understood and shared Brian’s passion and vision to bring skating to people of all ages and ability levels. Bob invested and together they started Cardiff Skate Co with Bob leading the company as CEO.
