viberideCarson MacDonald, Charlie Cannon and Chris Goodhue introduce the Sharks to VibeRide, their patented skatboard brakes that are over 20 years in the making, in Shark Tank episode 1511. The three guys met in college at Utah State and share a passion for skateboarding. With Utah’s hilly terrain, they identified a problem with skateboarding there immediately: wipe-outs were common.

With that in mind, Carson began exploring the world of skateboard brakes. This led him to an Australian company that had several patents on a skateboard braking system. Carson acquired the patents and the three friends began improving upon the design. Part of the reason they guys were able to acquire the patents was Carson had already built an online drone business that earned over $10 million! In 2023, after 3 years of tinkering and perfecting the design, the VibeRide braking system was ready for the masses.

The company sells through its website only. They use their social media accountss to drive interest in their products. A brake equipped longboard costs $249. They also sell brakes for attaching to your own board for $169 and they claim the brakes are compatible with 99% of longboard deck types. Rounding out their offerings are a brake-equipped, electric longboard for $499 and a variety of branded apparel. The guys likely want a Shark to help them with inventory and scaling.
