What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

LOGE at The Sands Westport is a one-of-a-kind camp and lodging experience on the Washington Coast with easy access to world-class surfing, beach exploration and other outdoor adventures. After locating a 60’s-era motel minutes from the beach in Westport, WA, we are now in the process of refurbishing and rehabilitating the property to create a place to relax, recharge and re-experience the outdoors. On-site amenities include:

  • Motel rooms 
  • Bunk rooms
  • Northwest-friendly covered campsites,
  • Wetsuit drying & storage 
  • Hot showers
  • Bar & cafe
  • Retail shop
  • Surfboard ding repair & shaping
  • Stage & movie screen 
  • Communal fire pit

 LOGE is much more than just a place to stay the night, it’s a place to connect with the community and meet new friends. With features and amenities geared towards surfers, hikers, and outdoor lovers, LOGE is the easy answer to the question, “Where are we going, what are we doing and where are we staying this weekend?”

LOGE (pronounced Lodge) came into existence when a group of developers were looking to fill a gap in the market with lodging centered around outdoor enthusiasts in locations where hip lodging options are not currently available. Our goal is to provide a fun, clean, and affordable experience in a location that is both a place to adventure outside and to stay comfortably.

A concept like LOGE does not yet exist in Westport, but there are similar one-off versions in neighboring coastal communities like Tofino, Long Beach, Seaside, Illwaco and Cannon Beach currently experiencing great success. Westport is both rich in natural and recreational assets, as well as being even closer to major urban centers. As we grow the LOGE experience, we are looking to thoughtfully give back to the surf community, environment, and the local economy. For starters, we will be donating 1% of our Kickstarter campaign earnings to the Surfrider Foundation to further their mission of protecting our oceans and beaches.

We are a lot like you. We are surfers, creatives, builders. We love to travel, we love the outdoors and we believe community plays a huge role in both our lives and our adventures. We are also long-time patrons to Westport, WA and are invested in the local economy.

LOGE's founder grew up on the Olympic Peninsula in a family of outdoor recreationalists and entrepreneurs which ingrained in him an urge to see the area thrive. So while LOGE is a financial venture, it’s a personal one as well. We aim to enable recreational access on the coast while building the economy of Westport in a sustainable way.

 

So far we have purchased the property and secured some initial funding, but with your help we can:

  • Increase our brand awareness
  • Ensure operational cash flow 
  • Finish the build-out of this unique property 

By Kickstarting us, you will help us dial in the finishing touches and be a part of our founding team. 

 

 

 

 

 

Stay Options 

From campsites, beds in the bunk room, and motel room packages to full month-long escapes, we're pleased to offer discounted rates on nightly room stays. Be sure to get in early for the best deals. 

Experience 

The reason we chose Westport is its access to world-class surfing and gorgeous coastline. Come experience it for yourself with surf and stay packages that include rental gear from our partner, Bigfoot Surf School, or pick up a s'more kit for your next beach bonfire. 

Memorabilia 

From custom LOGE stickers for your board, car or laptop, t-shirts, hats, koozies and Yeti Lowball tumblers, we're offering many ways and reward levels to rep LOGE.

Founder Recognition 

We are offering the chance to be a permanent part of this LOGE property by naming a room or a campsite, adopting one of our decorative surfboards, or leaving a message on a featured plaque.

Risks and challenges

Like every new project, we have our own risks and challenges. But primarily, without Kickstarter funding, our mission of building community and awareness through recreation will be dramatically lengthened.

We have secured the property, but with your help we can add extra signature LOGE amenities even quicker.

FAQ

  • The Tiers represent the same reward at different price points. The reason for this is that we want to incentivize early supporters. You'll notice the low tiers have very limited quantities, so once they are gone it's on to the next tier. Thanks again for the question hope that clears things up for everyone.
