The site currently lists Australia, California and Bali as locations where you can pre-book a board and pick up on arrival, but the view is obviously towards expanding the reach of the service. As it turned out I recently found myself on the Gold Coast with cyclone Linda looming and my travelling quiver looking decidedly inadequate. Blake Thornton had slung me an Awayco code and the site suggests you can try the concept for a month for free. I had every intention of exploiting the deal, but as it was I got stuck in the Cooly vortex and never made it to the Stacey board-shop in Currumbin where Awayco offer its services. You know who these guys are. While initially open to the Awayco concept, they soon realised that the subscription surfboard model had the capacity to completely transform the whole fabric of the surfboard culture.
Awayco Gear Rental: How It Works
Reviewing the Awayco membership program, maybe a new way to think about board "ownership"
The other is at the brands San Fransisco HQ. Awayco Members find and book the gear they want at awayco. Our planet is an amusement park and everyone should have a ticket to ride. By making high-quality gear accessible, Awayco releases its members from the weight of ownership so they can move through the world more freely. Less belongings, more experience. Less planning, more play. The business recently made some changes to the membership model after getting feedback from users, key partners and manufacturers explains co-founder, Adrian Buchan.
For careers with passion. AWAYCO wants to reinvigorate the rental business offering high-quality bicycles, winter sports equipment and surf gear, whilst working sustainably against waste and overconsumption and attracting more customers to sports retail. In the app, users can currently find more than 20, high-quality branded products at specialist retailers in over locations. Shops will benefit from the integration of their branch websites, platform marketing, local marketing support and easy-to-use in-store booking software. AWAYCO impressed the judges by fundamentally simplifying sports activities and travel, and is a worthy winner in the Connected Sports category. I want to travel lighter and discover new equipment, and Awayco is a way to do this. See you at the summit. For enquiries please contact Mrs. Beatriz Lourenco beatriz awayco.
Do you typically buy one board per year? You could get by with never buying another board again as an Awayco member. A fair trade? Depends on your particular brand of surfboard promiscuity.
