About

 Experience Surf Company, LLC

(Installation Video)

Experience Surf Company Board Locks work with the majority of SINGLE FIN BOX designs without board modification!

EXPERIENCE is a company located in Southern California. The culture is captured within the name: EXPERIENCE everything life has to offer. You only have one opportunity to enjoy each moment...

We are an up-and-coming surf company looking to introduce our invention to the surfboard and SUP world. We’re surfers who are OBSESSED with going in the water, but we love stopping for food on our way home. We got sick of the risk with leaving our boards on the back of a pickup truck while we went and had some grub.

Our original-design board lock is a theft-deterrent device for securing a surfboard or SUP with a single-fin design. You can use the device to secure your board to a vehicle while you shop, to a bench while camping, to a sign post, boat, dock, bike rack…heck, just be creative and protect your valuables!

We're hoping to get this initial product established and selling so we can work on designing styles for FCS and Futures. In the future, we hope to expand our business into more surf accessories and clothing.

Risks and challenges

The first risk is behind us: we self-funded the first 100 units, established an LLC, and launched a website. Now we’re ready for funding to generate some revenue so we can invest in marketing. This is our biggest challenge because marketing is costly, and not being able to market the product to our specific audience will hinder our ability to earn profits for expanding our product line. We would love to be able to make a style compatible with FCS or Futures, but we need to expand our marketing to make this happen.

In addition, our current machining process only allows us to produce 100 units every 3 to 4 weeks. With more funding, we could expand our processing to improve our product delivery time. Ultimately, it would be great to have the part die-cast – this would reduce the cost of the lock to our customers and provide wholesale opportunities to other surf shops. However, this manufacturing process is expensive to initiate.
