A SCOTTISH PACKAGING EXPERT (NERD) AND A GUERNSEY 'MASTER' SURF COACH WALK INTO A TRADESHOW...
Sounds almost like the start of a joke. However, it's the truth and the very first step of a 2 year journey. Jez, whilst lead generating for an E-Commerce company was distracted by Ross's packaging stand at a tradeshow event up in Birmingham. He had a light bulb moment and had to discuss an idea he'd had for years. "Hi, I'm Jez, a surf coach and I have a proposition for you!." After discussing the constant issues of travelling with surfboards on airlines Ross said with determination "Leave it with me." Within 1 week prototypes were sent and the design, testing and redesign to find a cost effective, ethical and light solution began. That was nearly 2 years ago. Since that first day, the prototypes still line Jez's board bags on his monthly surf coaching travels. Pilot schemes with some of the industries leaders have been run with over 2,000 boards shipped to 4 different continents without one hitch. The two experts (well...Nerds really) in their respective fields, felt ready to unleash their creation, 'BoardBUBL™' to the World.
