Remember Your First Surfboard?
You got a new surfboard—am I right?
I can’t think of anything more enjoyable than buying a new surfboard—you likely dropped at least $500 bones on that new stick and right now you are thinking about how to cover that beauty, how to protect it, make it last.
I remember my first surfboard, it was called a Crazy Horse and I didn’t have a board bag for it and it got dinged up fast. where is that board now?
I bought it from my friend Dave’s older brother, it had one fin and was something like 7’6. The journey of a lifetime begins with one board.
I don’t even remember how I got the money to pay for it, maybe from a summer of mowing lawns—yea, that must have been it. I think I was 10.
Board bags Protect Your Valuable Stick
That first surfboard of mine got beat up, dinged, and punished by the sun as I was learning to surf. I wish I still had that surfboard and if I had it in a bag all those years, it would have had a fighting chance to survive the elements.
Let’s get back to you and your new surfboard, or maybe you got an older one that needs a new safe, cool, hemp home.
Not all board bags are the same and what you should really be thinking about first is protection.
Most board bags are padded and can offer some resistance from a knock against the wall or a hit from your little brother as he climbs inside your truck.
This is the main difference between a surfboard sock and a board bag. Most board bags have 3mm of padding, the Wave Tribe Pioneer bags have 6mm of Rebound Foam Dynamics including open-to-nose technology.
I tend to be clumsy, so I designed our board bags with more padding than necessary.
Hemp: The ‘Cool’ Fabric
Your board bag needs to breathe enough to allow your surfboard to remain cool inside the love pocket you just bought for it.
Wave Tribe bags are made from breathable hemp fabric, which keeps your board 10 degrees cooler than the normal plastic board bag.
What You Buy Matters: No To Plastic
Did you know it takes about 450 years just for one plastic bottle to break down? Here at Wave Tribe, we want to reduce the plastic in our lives and products so we started using other more sustainable materials in our surfboard bags.
Yea, I know our bags are a little more expensive. But look, if your bag falls apart in a few months then you’ll have to buy another cheap-ass plastic bag anyway.
Why not spend a little more money and buy one that will last and that is better for the planet?
Longevity is the most eco part of our bag and not because of the rad hemp or stylish design but because we put Japanese YKK nickel-plated zippers on every Wave Tribe surf bag.
Look, it’s happened to all of us.We got a sick board bag at a deep discount. It fits our surfboard perfectly and after a few months or a year, the zipper sticks or breaks off in our hands. Useless.
First of all, Wave Tribe zippers won’t break—we guarantee it.
Second of all, if for some reason your zipper does break while you are zipping up your precious sled, we will replace your board bag as fast as a John John's right-handed punt.
So when you are done with your board bag (well not for a long time we hope) you can just plant this bag in your garden! Hemp board bags protect your board (very important) and also protect the earth (that is cool too).
High Quality & Radness For The Earth
Yep, if it ain’t quality it ain’t eco—I don’t care if you can smoke it, plant it, or recycle it—it has got to last and do its job well.
That’s how we roll, though we are known as the eco surf dudes, really we are more about designing awesome quality that lasts for surfers that give a damn about their gear.
Ok let's review . . .
The Wave Tribe surfboard bagis made from a strong density Rugged Eco Hemp exterior which is one tough fiber and naturally built to last with high impact padding protection with Rebound Foam Dynamics including open-to-nose technology.
All Sides are guarded by our Japanese Never-Rust-or-Break Nickel-Plated Zippers streamline zipper trails and our trademarked Easy Flow Zip System.
Additionally, we strengthened the top carry handle, adding heavy-duty stitching along with the handle and other stress points.
So we know that buying a board bag isn't rocket science but you should buy one that WORKS and is SUSTAINABLE. (Doing the right thing is always a good thing.) If you still need convincing that these are the best on the market, then you should read the ESPN review that said our "boardbags are better."
They also said:
"the production of this board bag is better for the land, the durability causes less waste, and its biodegradable nature is good for all of us."
Wave Tribe has been around since the mid-2000s and we aren’t going anywhere as long as you keep investing in our future together.

Together we will do cool stuff like plant trees in the Amazon and donate to awesome campaigns like Heal The Oceans campaign.
