Topless board bag was NEVER intended to compete with sock’s or day bags. Those bags get wax inside, dirt and sand inside and boards stick to the inside of bags and eventually scratch boards. I’m sure YOU use a sock or some type of bag?..but 85% of ALL surfers or ten million surfers use no UV protection all ALL. Here’s why topless board bag is so unique. Topless board bag was invented for the surfer who’s boards are hanging in the garage or patio with NO cover, NO dirt, NO dust and NO UV protection. They grab their boards, attach them to the top of cars, back of trucks or inside vehicles and drive with the sun’s UV rays beating down on the boards. Then they surf, get out of water and sit on beach for the day or hang out with friends for an hour or so. Or strap boards up against a fence like surfers do at Tourmaline surf park in San Diego OR lay boards on the ground OR put their boards back on their vehicles where the sun continues to deteriorate, fade and discolor surfboards. 85% of ALL surfers use NO cover because of the hassels of surf bags on the market. They are great for travel and for surfers who don’t mind dealing with their hassels.

Take a good look and you’ll see…Topless Board Bag is a great idea for the easiest UV protection and a cover a surfer will actually use. Topless Board Bag…“The easiest UV protection for surfboards”. http://www.toplessboardbag.com
So what your saying is topless boardbag has no top.
My stupid old redundant terry sock bag has one of those pesky tops protecting my board from UV , dirt , wax , dings , yadda …yadda … yadda… turn it inside out to wash it …yadda…yadda…yadda… protects on bothsides at the same time …yadda…yadda…yadda… rolls up to the size of a football …yadda…yadda…yadda…
Beefan… ear hair is a bigger problem for me as the nose ones just don’t stand a chance with my finger always diggin around in there and having been shafted soo many times, bumfluff is also not an issue So suggest ear trimmers would get me VERY keen.
Rocky…BTW just saw a nice piece of topless swim by my rock, no wax, no dirt but nice UV tinted tits they were
Good point of view and I for one will cop it sweet if I have pre judged.
One of several points i just do not get is this…
assume that when one leaves a board IN a car is when it gets hot enough for the wax to melt or soften enough to stick to a conventional sock/bag. So now the TOPLESS without a top (oh now I get the name…silly Rocky) does away with that problem…BUT , now the melted or soft wax will stick ti your car seats, upholstery, tray …whatever for the same reason it was going to stick to a normal bag…Have I got something wrong here???
If the board is on a rack then same applies, or it is not hot enough to cause a wax problem so TOPLESS has no advantage.
Hard to guess why the average Joe really uses a bag but prolly because…
Travel…could not check in a TOPLESS
Stop wax getting in or on car…Topless is F&%ked in that department
Asthetics…OK if you like wearing a skirt or your board packed by Grandma
Rocky is missing the point of this revolutionary invention
Topless Board Bag when placed on wax side of board (which some surfers buy it for) can then be placed inside vehicle with NO wax transfer to car seats. Other surfers are placing topless board bag on wax side of surfboard then slipping surfboard into day bag or travel bag with eaze and NO wax issues ANYMORE inside travel bag. No more wax on bottom of surfboard. Topless board bag covering bottom of surfboard while on top of vehicle when driving is the easiest and smartest TO AND FROM THE BEACH UV protection for a surfboard which is why i invented it in the first place. **SIMPLE UV PROTECTION TO AND FROM THE BEACH. **
It’s was invented for the millions of surfers who drive to the beach with **NO **UV protection on their investment…if they care about their surfboards that is. It was invented for the surfer who gets out of the water, slip this cover on in **less than ten seconds **and hangs out with friends with no issues of surfboard fading and discoloring WHILE all the other boards sit and slowly fade. It was invented for the surfer you and i see driving down the street each and everyday with NO UV PROTECTION ON THEIR SURFBOARD. Now there is a simple way to PROTECT those surfboards **TO AND FROM THE BEACH. **Some laugh and write silly comments for Topless Board Bag is new…but that’s okay for it solves a problem. That’s what simple ideas do they solve problems.That’s why the United States Patent Office is issuing us a Patent. I laugh all the way to the bank each day. Topless Board Bag however is a great idea and all we need is 3% of the 3 million surfers on the west coast to get one. The surf industry is an 8 biilion dollar a year industry with 1 billion being accessories like wax, wet suites, leaches, board bags etc. We want just a small piece of that accessory pie and we’re proving Topless Board Bag is a hit with surfers right here in San Diego. We currently have four investors with an angle investor who surfs we just met last Saturday at Tourmaline Surf Park in San Diego. Topless Board Bag…“Simple UV Protection For Surfboards”.
Topless Board Bag is going to turn the surf industry…UPSIDE down.
If you have convinced all those hardcore surfers at the US Patent office that this is ‘the next big thing’…it must be soooper 'cause they never allow patents on silly ideas.
Also your ‘heart felt’ concern for true innovation, environmental concern and absolute single minded approach to your true soul and contribution to the surfing culture, without the slightest hint of greed or concern for your personal financial position is oozing and flowing like the blood of a true martyr from the quote above.
So CONRATULATIONS, you are a role model for all surfers globally, that this surfing thing is all about a great big cash cow just waiting to be milked, and true innovators like you deserve everything you get…as Midget alludes to…Mr T…rump would be proud of yer boy…but I hear ya Toppo, what does Midget know about the surfing industry, and hell he ain’t no overnight millionaire like you gunna be.
One last question…you don’t live in or around the San Deigo Zoo by any chance because if the patents office thought for one minute you got this fantastic idea from ruminations over the fence on the wind, you may loose priority…just a thought.
Rocky…my dog just farted, …brilliant!!..now busy writing out the patent application for…??? hey I ain’t sayin nuttin
Dear Mrs. Topless (at least, I HOPE you are a Mrs., because that’s the only way any of us would wanna see you topless),
although I appreciate your enthusiasm for this original idea, I am sure that Burton Snowboards, who also owns Channel Islands surfboards, probably has much better patent attorneys at their disposal than you do, and probably has a patent on this type of thing for surfboards already, especially considering they’ve been making them for snowboards for many years. I know this, because I own SIX of them.
#1) You don’t get wax on your seats, your arm, your pants or your car racks.
#2) You can stack boards in your car or on your roof without waxing the bottom of your boards.
#3) You can designate the logo on any Board Bag or Socks the “up-side” and then always put your board wax up on the logo side. Thus eliminating the possibility of getting wax on the bottom of your board.
#4) A Bag or Sock keeps dirt and rocks out better than a half open design where dirt or debris could enter the bag.
#5) Most people who are leaving there boards exposed to the sun like on a car roof or truck bed want the silver reflective material because the main concern is heat not UV exposure!
Mahalo to the 750 + surfers who have looked at our blog and according to our stats visited our web site as well. As you can see only a handful have chosen to be silly and critical. Mahalo also to those we’re in contact with via this blog and their interest and potential investment in this simple UV protection for surfboards. No where in our blog were we critical or demeaning to any of our fellow surfers or other products but we do want to clarify. Our UV board cover is intended for the millions of surfers WHO DON’T use a board bag or board sock for what ever reason. Not the surfers who do use day bags or socks.
We introduced our topless board cover in San Diego in October, 2010. To date we’ve sold over 600. We’re just spreading the Aloha spirit to those surfers who want a simple cover that slips on in less than ten second for easy garage to beach protection. All the comments are true regarding other board bags and we don’t argue that.
These blogs do work however so mahalo, mahalo. We’ve just ordered a few hundred more from our manufacture in Chula Vista California and our new colors will be on line after June 12th. We will also be promoting our UV bag cover at the Pacific Beach Surf Club contest at Tourmaline Surf Park in San Diego on Saturday, June 11th.
