On the beaches of Thailand and Australia, 2006, two old uni friends (Dan and Joel) came up with an idea. As they surfed, scuba dived, and sailed their way through the next six months, they found they were constantly fighting to keep their tech, clothes and valuables safe from the encroaching sand and sea.
They realised that what they needed was a totally trustworthy waterproof bag that guaranteed peace of mind without slowing them down. And with that, OverBoard was born. As soon as they arrived home they were researching, designing, innovating and producing their first prototypes – the perfect dry bags which became the first OverBoard products.
The response was overwhelming and they were soon producing dry bags for phones, iPads and even emergency supplies, all to keep them safe from the damage caused by water, snow, dirt and sand.
The Dan and Joel commitment has been simple – to combine good looking, high quality and value-for-money gear with 100% waterproof protection.
Today, OverBoard are the leaders in waterproof bags, and it’s not hard to see why. All of their products are rigorously tested to ensure they’re capable of withstanding the extremes they may find themselves in. From temperature and strength tests to dust and depth testing, OverBoard take their commitment seriously.
