Surf the Alps

From flat Denmark to the mountains of the Alps, surfing is now possible anywhere in the world. Check out this video from when we zig zagged through the tallest peaks of Europe.

The Invention of Fingersurfing

Fingersurfing was, like so many other good things, lovingly conceived on the backseat of a car. We were driving along in the flat danish countryside, dreaming ourselves away to a place with proper surf. We played with our hands out the window, putting different flat objects like pea pods under our fingers, imitating the surfmoves we had seen in Kauaii, Costa Rica, and Puerto Rico. Fingersurfing has come a long way since then. 

We have found the perfect shape for the Fingersurfboard. We have designed a leash and even a tiny piece of Fingersurf wax, making it much easier to make all those gnarly tricks that we haven’t discovered yet. 

Now we have a product that we would love to share with all of you guys, so everybody can be able to experience the feeling of surfing, no matter how far away from the beach you live .

Via con dios!

Alexandra Mainka

Head of Sales US & Asia

Alexandra will handle sales from her base in Puerto Rico and during her many travels to surfspots in Bali and the rest of Asia.

Production Plan

Right now, the complete package is ready to be produced. We've designed the board, the wax and the leash in a way that makes it easy to carry all of the components in one single Fingersurfbag.

We have found a factory who can produce all the elements and package them. They estimate about a month to productiontime after we hit the go! button.

During this period, our plan is to develop an online platform where we can sell the boards and build the Fingersurf community together with Fingersurfers around the world.

Since seasons are different from continent to continent, we won´t let the danish climate decide when we launch. Instead we´ll just focus on getting Fingersurfing out to you as quickly as possible, where ever you are.

Risks and challenges

The primary challenge is to create the best possible experience for all the potential Fingersurfers out there. Thats why we are spending numerous hours perfecting the shape of the board, and will continue to do so even after the project is funded. We actually want to create boards that match every aspect and style of surfing, so there is a Fingersurfboard for everyone.

Another challenge is to get the word out to people around the world. We need these people to help us not just to support the project, but to come up with awesome tricks and styles for Fingersurfing.

Because the real fun begins when we can learn from each other, and start spotting other Fingersurfers on the roads.
