FlipTech was founded in 2013 by inventor and action sports enthusiast, Mike Bellon. Mike grew up skateboarding and surfing in San Diego, California. One day while skating, he had an idea to build a scooter that could do tricks just like a skateboard. Bellon went straight to the store, bought a bunch of scooters, and started cutting them up in his garage. He then sourced a U.S. manufacturer to perfect the process and start production. It was on that day that FlipTech was born.
