Hello, I'm Marie.
I'm a SCUBA instructor, ocean, life and cheese enthusiast. One day, I discovered surfing. I absolutely loved it but quickly faced one little problem... carrying the surfboard to the surf spot!
What they're saying about their surf bag
I have surfed my whole life and been on plenty of surf trips. The ease of use that CMS brings on the trips is incredible. The pouch is also super handy for water bottles, sunscreen & snacks for long days on the beach, so happy about my purchase. It's extra useful for scaling down uneven slopes or sand dunes, I love it.
CMS is my favourite recent buy! My arms still have enough power to actually surf and it's not a struggle to take it home after I'm done surfing. It also makes it much easier to take the surfboard on the scooter, when not having a surf rack. The fact that it is made from ocean plastic is even more special! It’s not only stylish and helpful, but it actually helps with cleaning up the ocean.
As a beginner surfer, I was a bit annoyed of having to carry the board to the surfspot and especially back to the car after surfing! With a big board, it's a dread! Super happy about Carry My Surf, it was easier managing through the rocks and I felt safer my hands were free especially when you have to go down some cliffs!
Carrying my surfboard always hurt my arm after a while and I'd have to stop to switch sides as it's a really long board. CarryMySurf ba has been a game changer! Now I can carrymy board easily and with hands free to carry other things, even climbing down steep slopes to get to different beaches. Now my arms only ache from paddling, not carrying my surf board!

Carry my Surf. The Story.
Hello there! I'm Marie, a SCUBA instructor who is absolutely in love with surfing, water and life. But above all, my heart is deeply committed to protecting our beautiful oceans. The issue of plastic pollution has become a serious concern, with a staggering 12 million tons of plastic finding its way into the ocean each year. As a SCUBA instructor, I've unfortunately been witnessing firsthand the devastating impact it has on the marine life.During my surfing adventures, something caught my attention—a struggle faced by most of the surfers as they are trying to carry their heavy boards to the surf spots. It struck a chord within me, and I knew I had to do something to make their lives easier. But I didn't want to create just any bag; I wanted to make a bag that would truly make a difference. That's when the spark of inspiration ignited—I would craft it from the very plastic we collect from the ocean.Transforming a problem into a solution, while giving it a meaning for the planet, became my mission.
Let me share with you the incredible features of this innovative bag. It's astonishingly lightweight, weighing only 350 grams, making it a breeze to carry during all your travels.Using the bag is as easy as can be—simply lay it flat, place your board in the center, and effortlessly carry it like a fashionable handbag. And guess what? I've added a handy pocket where you can stash all your essentials. No more fumbling for keys, wax, phone. But that's not all! You can also conveniently tuck your wetsuit inside, saving you the hassle of putting it on before reaching your surf spot.Oh, and there's more! Inside the bag, you'll find sturdy straps crafted from recycled materials, ensuring your surfboards stay securely in place throughout your travels. These straps prevent any unwanted sliding in and out, giving you peace of mind. To prioritize your comfort, we've added shoulder pads to the straps, providing an enjoyable and pain-free carrying experience.However, the real essence of this bag lies in my deep concern for the planet. That's why these bags are meticulously handcrafted, supporting local businesses right here in Spain. But what truly sets them apart is that they're made from recycled marine plastic debris. I've joined forces with the amazing Seaqual Initiative, a brilliant community dedicated to retrieving plastic from the ocean. Through their innovative process, the rescued plastic is transformed into fibers, bringing our surf bags to life with a touch of magic.By purchasing one of these bags, you're not just making your surf life easier; you're actively participating in the crucial task of cleaning our oceans—one wave at a time.Feel free to explore our website or drop me a line at email@example.com if you have any questions. As we dive into full production, rest assured that saving the ocean is our top priority!See you out there, catching waves and making a positive impact,With love,
Environmental Dedication: Our Mission
WHY RECYCLING MARINE PLASTIC DEBRIS IS MORE CHALLENGING THAN CONVENTIONAL PLASTIC?Plastics that have been floating in the ocean endure the harsh effects of saltwater and UV rays. Once retrieved from the ocean, they require sorting, cleaning, and cutting before undergoing a gradual melting process to transform them into yarn.
We collaborate with the world's only NGO dedicated to recycling ocean-found plastic, converting it into fibers for our surf bags. This endeavor also involves providing employment opportunities to local communities for the recycling process.
While we could have opted for inexpensive imported fabric to reduce costs, it contradicts our principles. We genuinely care about the environment and aspire to aid the oceans. We advocate for making mindful choices rather than excessive consumption.Our aim was to offer you the finest surf bag that considers the well-being of the ocean, all at an affordable price.
We take pride in declaring that each surf bag makes a significant impact.
