It’s been a big year for The Dry Bag so far, after launching in May and receiving such an amazing response, we felt it was time to get out there and meet with the people who love what we’re doing. On the search for like-minded people, we knew that there was no better place to speak with lovers of water sport, than at the UK’s largest surfing event – Boardmasters!
From the minute we pitched up to Fistral beach last Wednesday the attraction and curiosity towards The Dry Bag grew from strength to strength as the word spread that we were in town! Not only did we see a great response from our avid surfing community, body boarders, open water swimmers, divers, triathletes and sailors came over to chat with us. By Sunday afternoon we had sold out of some version of The Dry Bag – a fantastic response to our first show!
For those of you who couldn’t get down to the festival, we made sure you felt part of the action. Followers on social media were updated with festival antics, from a “Where’s Wally” style find The Dry Bag to a hidden sticker and we hosted a fantastic Q&A with Britain’s best pro surfers, Alan Stokes and Ben Skinner, who were both competing in the surf event at Boardmasters. They discussed a range of topics such as how they got into surfing, who they felt would do well at Boardmasters, and of course, how they use their Dry Bag! What the full interview here!
After an awesome five days surrounded by great music, amazing surf and wonderful views, we were absolutely delighted with the feedback we received on The Dry Bag. Feedback complemented the simplicity and innovation of the bag, and it was great to hear that people thought it solved such a common wetsuit drying problem amongst the water sports community. Offering a drying and travelling solution as well as UV protection for you wetsuit.
Overall, we left Cornwall with a positive spring in our step and we can’t wait to be present at more events throughout the country in 2018 to help solve your wetsuit drying problems!
