A New Way to Carry Your Surfboard
A rad new way to get your board to the beach.
Known for simple, high-quality eco-bags, New York label Baggu’s nylon totes and supple leather pouches have been steadily gaining a following among locals.
Now the brand is taking its first sandy steps into the beach-gear arena, teaming up with Brooklyn-based Pilgrim Surf and Supply Co. to create the Surf Sling, a clever recycled-canvas board carrier designed to make treks from the car to the crests (ahem, Diamond Head, Queens) a heck of a lot easier.
Outfitted with sturdy-yet-soft nylon straps, the 34-inch-tall tote splits apart at the top and sides, making it easy to slip in a surfboard or body board. Keeping with Baggu’s signature basic aesthetic, its exterior is bare save for a colorful key loop and discreet top pocket roomy enough to store wax and a few small accessories.
And it’s not just for water sports; the Sling transports cardboard boxes to the recycle bin with ease and makes schlepping cumbersome beach chairs and picnic blankets out to Magic Island a snap.
