About Organic Dynamic Factory Store

Project 2017-05-21 22:31:44 +1200

THE PROBLEM

Current materials used to make surfboards are extremeley toxic, carcinogenic, non recyclable and non biodegradable. An average surfboard weighing 3kg will emit 300kg of CO2 in it's lifetime.

THE SOLUTION

Light, strong surfboards made from recycled polystrene packaging, NZ grown timber and plant based resins that are built to last. 

 

WHY ARE WE RAISING MONEY ?

We currently lease space inside a joinery factory, but we would like our own space, With greater production capacity and a small retail store out front. The store will be close to Lyall Bay in Wellington and stock a range of sustainable surfcraft and accesories. We will also have a load of demo boards for people to test out before they order a custom surfboard. And of course coffee.

A more efficient production facility will enable us to provide competitive wholesale prices to selected retailers around NZ, And investment in our own CNC machine will make it possible to provide fully machined blanks to other surfboard manufacturers around NZ, So that you can get a sustainably made custom surfboard from your local shaper. 

 

REWARDS

Trevor the Triumph and Demo board Raffle 

We love this car, And it has served us well on our NZ demo tour. But we also love producing sustainable surfboards so we are going to raffle him off to rasie money for our new facility. Car is a Manual, Comes with current WOF and Rego, 4 New tyres, Roof racks and your choice of demo board from the 7'0" Slinger, 5'8" Whittler or 5'4" Stump.

Runner up gets to choose from 1 of the remaining demo boards.

    $9k to go!

    08:13AM Thu 23/11/17 on Organic Dynamic Factory Store

    Hello Pledgers! 

    Hope everyones having a great week and enjoying the beautiful weather! Thanks again for all your generous support so far! 

    We have raised almost $21,000 so far and have 6 days left to raise another $9000 to reach our target. Keep in mind the Raffle won't go ahead unless we hit our $30k target. So please check out our other rewards and share the campaign with your friends. 

    I should also mention that whatever we raise on Pledgeme is up for match funding by the Wellington City council, Powershop and BNZ bank who have sponsored the Low Carbon Challenge this year. If your interested in the program there is more info here.

    This money will all go towards a slick production facility that will allow us to make sustainable surfboards faster and more accurate to the CAD files so that we can start collaborating with other surfboard shapers. It will also allow us to make long boards which is a huge market that we havent been able to tap into due to machinery limitations.

    We are currently travelling around the North Island, meeting up with surfers and shapers along the way and offering free demos. The feedback about the feel and performance of the boards has been amazing and we have some awesome footage that we will be releasing very soon. 

    We have a new reward! Its an organic cotton terry towelling hooded changing robe. These are really handy for changing in and out wetsuits and boardies at the beach and available for $120 on the campaign. 

     

     

    Thanks again and good luck to the raffle ticket holders!

    Cheers

    Jack

    Huge thanks to everyone that has pledged on the campaign so far. We are almost half way there with 11 days to go so are feeling pretty good! To promote our campaign we are doing a nationwide demo tour so that surfers can test our boards out before they buy them. We've done the South Island and the feedback has been great! We are about to head up North, First stop Mt Maunganui on Sunday so please come down if your around.

    If your on the fence about getting a board or need some advice about what board to get feel free to call me anytime and i'll be more than happy to help, My number is 0273 150 998. 

    Cheers! 

    Jack
