Ground Control was founded by Jon Elliott in the year 2000. Jon was one
of the top skaters at the time and his tall body size and heavier weight
put a lot of strain on existing frame designs. His vision was to develop the strongest and most durable frames in the industry. The first
frames hit stores in summer 2001 and featured signature design elements
that are still leading in the industry today. Ground Control continues to lead the way in aggressive frame technology year after year. - Ground Control Frame Company.
