6: Jack Bateman

Owner and founder of Borealis Skate Co., Jack Bateman, has a passion around creating custom boards. The challenge of not being able to find a longboard design that sparked his interest was the biggest problem Jack faced when looking to buy one. This in turn led to the start of making custom designs on already completed boards. From constructing a longboard to replicate an actual Sriracha bottle to The Ever North Longboard, just about any design is possible. Now attending college at NDSU, Jack’s dream is to open up a custom board shop to expand and turn his passion into his career.
