It all began on the beaches of Thailand and Australia - back in 2006. Having been friends since uni, Dan and
Joel – that’s us – had quit the rat race and slipped on our flip-flops to spend six months on an epic beach,
boat, surf and scuba holiday.
For weeks we fought to keep our technology, valuables and clothes safe from the impact of water and sand. And
finally light dawned – what we needed was a totally trustworthy waterproof bag that guarantee us peace of mind
without slowing us down. More than that, if this was our need it had to be true for thousands of others too.
Back home, even before our tans had faded, we were researching, designing, innovating and producing our first
prototypes – the perfect dry bags. And they became our first OverBoard products.
The response from friends, family and a growing band of highly satisfied customers spurred us on and so the
range had to grow. More colours, sizes and solutions to protect everything from phones and iPads to emergency
supplies – from the ravages of water, snow, dirt and sand.
Fast forward and today we are the leaders in waterproof bags and cases, with customers and distributors in over
70 countries. Sure, it’s been hard work – but there are perks. Not only do we test everything in the factory,
the ultimate trial is in real life situations, ideally with the sun beating down. And somebody has to do it!
Wherever you go, whatever you do, there’s an OverBoard 100% waterproof product for you.
…Keep it dry!
