Attic skate shop was founded by Brett Hamilton in 1997 in Costa Mesa, Ca. What made him want to sell skateboards was because he hated regular jobs like selling food at the swap meet at the OC fair grounds or when he would cut bushes for a living. Brett was in a crossroads until he had the opportunity to meet several good people in the skateboarding industry that allowed him to become a seller for these huge skate brands.

As his drive and passion skyrocketed so did his business and a new location was needed. In 2002 it was decided that Attic skate shop would open its doors to the public. Ever since then it’s been the kids that motivated Brett into becoming a role model for them and give them opportunities into the skateboarding world just like he was given when he first started. Now Attic skate shop consists of nice, hard working young local rippers who are Austen Coburn, Colby Franz, Julio Morales, Trae Montgomery, Kris Reeves, Josh Borden and also includes a long time friend and pro rider Omar Hassan into there team. –
