This partnership falls under the dryrobe® Warmth Project, supporting charities and communities that share values of promoting wellbeing, through outdoor activity and protecting the environment. As dryrobe® also have their roots on Cornish shores, we were keen to find out more about their journey. From humble beginnings to supporters of epic events to a leading global brand.
The story and history of dryrobe® can be traced back to Cornwall, born on the shoreline and developed by regular surfer Gideon Bright. It was developed into the product we see everywhere today in 2010. The dryrobe® Advance change robe is used as much by surfers as everyone else. It's now the jacket of choice for many a dog walker up and down the country, not forgetting campers, triathletes, spectators, wakeboarders, mountain bikers... the versatility of the dryrobe® appears to be endless.
Founder and designer Gideon Bright has worked tirelessly ever since to continuously upgrade and refine the design. dryrobe® Advance products are now made with 100% recycled fabrics.
The Wave Project
The Wave project harnesses the power of the ocean to to improve the mental wellbeing of young people. We've previously shared the story of where it all began at Watergate Bay in a podcast with the founder Joe Taylor.
Now the charity is over ten years old and explores locations up and down the UK, helping over 1500 children each year access surf therapy.
