About

The Concept

3 boards and your accomodation, all in a bag over your shoulder!
3 boards and your accomodation, all in a bag over your shoulder!

BoardSwag is a premium 3x surfboard travel boardbag with an additional compartment that holds an inflatable tent.

The BoardSwag was dreamt up by a couple of road-tripping Aussie surfers who slept a night in their boardbags to catch the early session at a secluded break. While the surf was mind blowing, the wet, uncomfortable sleep sparked an idea. And the Boardswag was born!

With its inbuilt swag and mattress, Boardswag makes your surfing adventures more spontaneous!

Out of bed and into the surf!
Out of bed and into the surf!

The perfect travel companion. Haul your boards by day and pass out in the swag by night, right next to the waves.

How It Works

On the outside BoardSwag looks like your typical travel cover, on the inside it's so much more. Featuring a top compartment that comfortably holds 3 boards and any other gear you can throw at it, and an additional bottom compartment that unzips to reveal an inflatable swag for you to crawl into at night.

The BoardSwag tent can be completely inflated and set up in under a minute, and the pack up is even quicker! We've made the process as simple as possible so you can spend more time in the surf and less time setting up camp.

BoardBag Features
BoardBag Features

All the bells and whistles you'd expect to find on a premium travel boardbag with extra emphasis put on the use of durable materials and components.

Swag Features
Swag Features

The swag component has been designed from the ground up and features a dual layer waterproof canopy, dual fly windows, a large doorway and fly screen, multiple anchor points and an inflatable strut structure which is rigid and durable without the need for pegs or tie downs. The swag is also designed to be detachable from the bag so that at any time it can be left set up or packed away while the bag is being used on separate day missions.

Risks and challenges

At BoardSwag we've been meticulously working on the design of the product and the selection of our manufacturing partners for over two years now. We're now at the stage where we have a tried and tested final product that is completely market ready and more importantly that we are stoked with!

Unlike a lot of products on this platform which require expensive tooling and set up costs, the BoardSwag is a relatively simple product with no set up costs and little manufacture risk. The fact that our product is market ready means there is no more time to be spent on development, once we have enough orders we can move immediately into production.

That being said, bringing any product to market can present challenges and unfortunately, delays can occur due to unforeseen circumstances. To minimise these risks we have selected and built relationships with reputable suppliers and manufacturing partners who we trust to deliver this premium product. Going through the manufacturing process is difficult, but our team and partners are more than up to the challenge. We give you our promise to do our best to make sure that the production process is done efficiently and effectively.
