Our Story - Our Early Days in Hermosa Beach

Born and raised in Naperville, IL, Dustin and Mike always had a dream of living by the beach.  They had been friends since they were children and always shared a love for bikes, fun, and the great outdoors.  They had always loved the Midwest, the different seasons, and the snowy winters, but they had envisioned a different future. 

In 2003, after graduating college, they made the decision to live out their dream.  They packed their things and made their way to California.  It didn’t take them long to find a home in Hermosa Beach.

Initially, their career paths took them in different directions landing Mike in the steel industry and Dustin in the entertainment industry.  It didn’t take long, however, for them to realize that their hearts really belonged to the beach and everything that Beachbikes is about.
