The original changing robe. Endlessly imitated, never matched.
Endlessly Imitated, Never matched
It’s hard to believe that before we created it, the changing robe didn’t exist. But we well remember the days when an ordinary beach towel was all we had to protect us (and our dignity) from the elements as we got into and out of the water.
Created in 2007
Our story began in St Ives: a beautiful Cornish harbour town known for its wild Atlantic coastline and its innovative, artistic spirit. Like many St. Ives residents before them, surfers Martyn and Tamsin Tarplee had a vision. They loved the ocean and the lifestyle that came with it but refused to believe they couldn’t improve the one bit of the experience they loathed: the brutal ‘exposure’ to the elements as they changed.
