“I want a shirt that says I'm a bodyboarder and proud” is how this all started.
Sure there’s plenty of bodyboard companies out there, but they all use logos which mean nothing to anyone who isn’t a bodyboarder. I want everyone to know I'm a bodyboarder, not just other bodyboarders and surfers.
So a group of friends got together and started Gone Bodyboarding.
is to provide limited runs of custom and original T-shirt and accessories, making sure that you wont see 100's of the same designs walking down the beach.
The Gone website has been designed as a community reference page where you can source information about clubs, material, equipment and world bodyboarding events.
We have included blogs from our gone ambassadors, some are competition bodyboarders, some are soul/solo bodyboarders and some are total beginners, so every level of bodyboarding can share their experiences.
"WE ARE NOT THE ELITE, THE 1%, WE ARE THE CORE!"
WE ARE FOR ALL BODYBOARDERS, WE MAY NOT BE ON THE WORLD TOUR, WE MAY NOT BE THE LOCAL CLUB CHAMPIONS, WE MAY HAVE NEVER BEEN TO A COMPETITION.
WE MAY HAVE BEEN BODYBOARDING FOR 40 YEARS OR 6 MONTHS, WE MIGHT BODYBOARD ON OUR OWN OR ONLY WITH OUR MATES. WE MAY CHASE THE BIG SLABS OR THE HORSE SHOEING BEACH BREAK. WE ARE FATHERS, DAUGHTERS, TRADIES AND OFFICE WORKERS. SOME OF US DO IT EVERY DAY AND SOME OF US WHEN WE CAN.
We might be all these things or none of them but we are the ones who keep this sport alive..... we are the core!
