Randy and Jerry have been skateboarding lovers since early 2000's in college. In student age, they were troubled to spend their money for the expensive or even over-priced skateboards. Therefore, Randy and Jerry co-founded Backfire Skateboards in 2009 with a mission for the company to deliver high quality, affordable skateboards and fun to all skateboarders in the world. Backfire entered the electric skateboard field in later 2014 and introduced Backfire G1, then in 2016 started the project for Backfire G2, and come production in later 2017. Randy leads the major R&D and lives in China. As a skater, Randy did a lot of testing on his own during R&D stage to make sure the board performs the best for the users. Jerry came to the United States to get his Master degree in business and lived in Richmond Virginia with his family; currently leads the company's strategic planning and marketing.
