Hello Ireland!

Wave Tribe is coming to Ireland

29th January Tralee, Ireland/the Hague, the Netherlands

Eco Surf brand Wave Tribe has signed surfer and pro Kite Surfer Ryan Coote as ambassador and agent for Ireland. Both are stoked about the cooperation.

Ryan: “I am really glad to be part of Wave Tribe. As a person I ask myself what is the meaning of life. I have had a few ideas as to what it might be. The simplest answer that I have come up with is DO IT BETTER. To the WT team it’s not just about making money out of functional gear for use in and out of the water it’s about making better gear. Better gear for the water user and better for the world that we all live in play in and love.” Ryan started as a surfer and progressed to become one of Ireland’s best Kite Surfers.Ryan Barrelling

Jaap Romme (Chief of the European Tribe): “We’re excited about Ryan joining our team. His energy and commitment will hugely help build Wave Tribe’s name in Ireland. His stoke for eco and quality means he will also be a true asset to the team in terms of brand and product development. Thank you for choosing us Ryan!”

If you’re a surfer in Ireland and keen to improve your Eco Karma get in touch with Ryan or look us up online at www.wavetribe.eu.

The Hague, Netherlands, September 2014

Eco surf brand Wave Tribe opens European HQ    

Founded in California, the first Eco surf brand Wave Tribe now opens its European HQ. Wave Tribe’s goal is Eco Surfto reduce the ecological footprint of surfers. Founder Derek Dodds: “7 years ago I was on a surf trip in Mexico with some friends and it suddenly stood out to me how much plastic we had with us. All the boardbags and other accessories were made of plastic. The stuff us surfers want to keep out of the oceans!” Derek founded the surfers reply to the plastic soup: Wave Tribe. In 7 years it grew to become one of the recognised brands in the Californian surf scene.

Wave Tribe is a brand for surfers by surfers and makes ecologically friendly surf accessories. Boardbags are made from Hemp, Leashes and Boardsocks from recycled plastic and deckpads are made out of Cork. The quality of the gear fits a premium brand. These types of eco accessories are currently non-existent in the EU surf market, Wave Tribe is going to change that. Our motto is: ‘Better Quality, More Eco, Same Price’.

Aside from being ecological, Wave Tribe is a true 21st century brand. With a very strong online presence our customers call it ‘My Local online’.  Contact is always very personal, like sitting down with a cuppa at your (physical) local and discussing last week’s awesome sets.  Wave Tribe forms a community of surfers who want to be eco responsible when performing their sport and supports its members with advice and tips on how to improve eco surf behaviour.

Wave Tribe is already present in several UK shops through our UK distributor.
