Kelly and Eric were inspired to help local adaptive surfers cross the sand to the waters edge in their wheelchairs with dignity and independence. Motivated to create a user-friendly solution, the two designed numerous prototypes and tested them with the adaptive surfing community. The initial concept worked, and they have since continued to improve upon the design with the input of the adaptive surfers and other wheelchair users. Their goal to have Access Trax (formerly known as Beach Trax) available to the public has been realized in 2018 with the launch of their company, Access Trax.
Go. Be. Live. aren’t words, they’re a mantra to live by. They aren’t rules that confine you, but stones on the path to freedom. These principles encompass all we do. Go. Be. Live. is different for every person. What does Go Be Live mean to you? We believe so strongly in these principals that we want to share with you just a little of what it means to us.
GoldenBoy Mobility started 40 years ago as a manufacturing company where Gary Sr. and his brother, Chris, designed, developed, and manufactured the GoldenBoy wheelchair lift. In 1978, Gary Sr. opened his own store whose motto was “Customer service first!” GoldenBoy specialized in van conversions, lifts, driving controls, and soon became a premier location for any custom modification.
Gary Jr. and the staff at GoldenBoy still focus on putting customer service first. This is a family business where our customers are part of our family. At GoldenBoy, you will be treated with respect and customer service while our experienced technicians work on your vehicle. We look forward to welcoming you to our family.
