Why Wave Tribe Travel Boardbags?

If you have a bigger board you need a bigger bag. Larger tails, glass-on fins and thicker boards require a custom bag and we got it—cause this is what we ride too.

The Mini Simmons Fish Hybrid Boardbag global series has a wider tail section, fin extender to fit your glass-on fins, and more padding then any other bag made—guaranteed.

These bags have been beat up (on surf trips around the world) like a Mike Tyson opponent and survived. Not only survived, but thrived through multiple trips and some mean looking airline staff with tattoos of sharks and nose rings.

Here is a recent interview with a wavetribian reviewing his travel bag experience.

Derek, founder of Wave Tribe, and world surf traveler said about these bags while designing them:

"the most important thing about a bag is that your boards arrive safe. The eco part is just a nice added benefit."

Derek goes on to say, "look, after decades of using shitty bags with broken zippers and barely any padding, I decided I wanted to create a bag with the best zippers available in the world, and the most padding. That's what I did."

Wave Tribe quality means your boards arrive safe and your bag zipper won't break—ever. 

The second raddest thing is that Wave Tribe's boardbags is that they are made from hemp, probably the most awesome textile on the planet.

These travel bags have been tossed, beaten, dropped, and dragged in extensive research and development to make sure the best travel bag is constructed for you.

Wave Tribe's Travel Boardbag's Mantra (Om)

Our global mantra with each generation is:

  1. Protect your surfboards with more padding, stylish design and quality components.
  2. Use strong high quality zippers using nickel plated non-corrosion YKK zippers made in Japan.
  3. Do the planet good by using ecological materials like hemp and surf like crazy.

In the current generation we added more padding to the bag itself, increasing it from 12 to 15 mm.

You'd think that was enough for most companies but not ours, we also added nose and tail pieces of another 13mm to protect those vulnerable areas during travel—the most protected travel boardbag in the surf industry yo (approved by Walter White).

13 mm Foam Inserts Nose & Tail

We also included more padding in the shoulder straps and the even added padding to the board separator inside our comfy bags so your boards wouldn't smash up against each other during those long flights.

Additionally we strengthened the top carry handle, adding heavy duty stitching.

You can fit lots of goodies in your bag and you might as well because the airline is going to charge you a transport fee no matter what you put in this eco travel buddy.

Surfers Love Our Bags Customer Marcus from Oregon sent us this photo of his recent surf trip and says about the Wave Tribe Travel Boardbag:

"This bag rocks, 2 boards, wetsuit, booties, 2 leashes and a foam roller. Closes easily."
