THE SKUNKWORKS SURFBOARD CO.
Our vision is to create the most robust, high-performance soft surfboards and stand-up-paddleboards in the world while making a minimum impact on the environment.
We can become the largest surfboard manufacturer globally, a market worth over $3 billion. We have solved an industry problem and by winning £100k in grants we have set up a manufacturing facility in N.I and grown from team of 2 to 4. I own a surf school, my biggest expense is replacing boards. Current boards have 5 structural flaws all attributed to adhesives, a global problem costing time, money and the environment. Our patent-pending heat-bonding technique eliminates adhesives. As we bond one section of our board to another it becomes the strongest section, not the weakest. We only use 100% recyclable materials. We make other peoples lives better by offering a product that saves money, time and the environment. We have had requests for over 200 boards, even though they have not even been released yet, such is the need.Winning Pitch to Rich will allow us to produce a ‘market ready board’, become a major employer, centre for innovation and a platform to reinvigorate the economy. – Click to vote
WE HAVE, INDIVIDUALLY, STARTED AND SUCCEEDED (AND SOMETIMES FAILED!) IN BUSINESS. WE UNDERSTAND THE DEDICATION, HARD-WORK AND TENACITY NEEDED TO MAKE IT. THIS IS OUR FIRST COLLABORATION AND WE HAVE STARTED SOMETHING SPECIAL.LIKE MOST GREAT COMPANIES WE HAVE SPOTTED A PROBLEM AND SOLVED IT. WE ARE NOT TRYING TO CREATE A NEW MARKET, RATHER REVOLUTIONISING A MARKET THAT ALREADY EXISTS! THE STIR WE HAVE CAUSED AMONGST OUR FUTURE CUSTOMERS ILLUSTRATES THE MASSIVE NEED FOR OUR PRODUCT. WE CAN REVOLUTIONISE THE SURFING WORLD. OUR SURFBOARDS WILL OUTLAST OUR COMPETITORS BY UP TO 500%, SOLVING THE INDUSTRY’S BIGGEST PROBLEM. WE USE ONLY 100% RECYCLABLE MATERIALS, AN INDUSTRY FIRST. WE WANT TO INNOVATE AS A TEAM AND ENCOURAGE GREAT IDEAS, THIS IS WHAT WE STAND FOR. EACH MONTH EVERYONE PITCHES NEW PRODUCT IDEAS TO THE REST OF THE TEAM, THESE HAVE INCLUDED FLIP-FLOPS, YOGA MATS, SURF WAX AND SKATE BOARDS. THE SKUNKWORKS SURFBOARD COMPANY HAS A BIG FUTURE AND WE WOULD LOVE YOU TO BE A PART OF IT.
