MIGRA, the groundbreaking new surfboard bag that opens up a world of surf travel adventurers for those looking to tame the waves, is live on Kickstarter and raising funds to bring the project to life.
The Migra surfboard bag is designed from the ground to inspire surfers to travel and explore more with their boards in tow. It is a bag two years in the making from conception to prototype and has been engineered to give extra protection to the board with additional features added to increase functionality during transport.
"The inspiration to develop the MIGRA bag comes from a journey to some remote islands in the Philippines. During this trip we used several different modes of transportation, from a pedal tuk tuk to small prop airplanes, and every time we had to figure out a way to load our boards and especially how to protect them,” says co-founder and creative director Marco De Santi. “After this trip we have started to think how to develop a product that could not only protect your board during transport but also guarantee quality and reliability.”
The MIGRA Surfboard Bag focuses on protection and functionality. A double foam layer protection is placed along the rails to protect the surfboard to impact while the practical external carry system will easily hold a wetsuit or other gear. Twelve multitasking rings on the edges are stitched in to allow balanced carrying or quickly tie down the bag in any situation. These rings can also double as an external carry system allowing travelers to carry wetsuits, towels, and other goods and tools. In addition, the bag includes a removable shoulder strap with a practical hook for easy transport as well as salt-resistant hardware designed for durability and resistance to seizing.
"Designing a product that is strongly bound to a specific surf board shape hasn’t been easy. First we started thinking about outdoor travel gear but considering also everyday surf. We wanted to create a product that could be used daily and not just be stored in the corner until your next airplane booking,” say co-founder and general manager Mirco Freddi. “We have started with three single board sized surfboard bags that are mostly used in daily surf and are already developing other versions for two and three boards.”
