His books are available for review or other media exploitation and content. 

His Bike Grip Board invention has roots that go back to his childhood. He was at the  beach with his family, in Southern California, and told his mom he wanted to make  a body board with handles. The reason for this, was because the board would slip  out of his hands as he neared the beach. Then, when he held on tight, hitting the  beach, would hurt his hands.  

His mom told him, he could not put handles on a body board. It just would not work.  

When he got a little older, he decided to make one anyway. He did, and the rest is history. The board is a revolutionary product destined to change the body board industry.
