Mom and dad can finally sit on the beach knowing their child is safe playing with their new favorite beach toy–the Surfer Dudes wave rider. Kids can put down their buckets and shovels and get some exercise. This toy kindles an interest in surfing for all ages, and there is no better way for young ones to learn more about this incredible sport. The claim of “World’s Best Beach Toy” will be a hard one to beat!
This unique toy is a self-righting surfer that can catch any wave and ride it all the way back to shore. Kids stay safe in the shallows because they never have to go into deep water to retrieve the toy—it floats back to shore every single time. The unique design of Surfer Dudes allows it to stay upright in the waves and surf just like a real pro. Kids never need to go more than shin-deep in the water to enjoy this fun new toy. All they have to do is throw it out into the waves and watch it ride back in style.
I encountered some unique problems during the design process of Surfer Dudes. The curvature of the board needed to be precise, or the nose would catch the water and flip the Dude over every time. There was also the issue of balance. Having a standard surfboard fin on the bottom of the Surfer Dude board was not enough to keep the toy upright, so I had to invent a new twist on an old design. My patented new beach toy is fun for the whole family, but most importantly, it’s safe.
I came up with the idea for the wave rider beach toy while watching my youngest son in the shallows. His older brother was surfing with his friends, and my youngest wanted nothing more than to be out in the deeper water with the “cool kids.” So I set about designing Surfer Dudes–the answer to his problem!
My son’s new toy was an immediate hit. He now felt like he was part of the group. He could safely throw his Surfer Dude into the waves and catch him on the ride back to shore. Even the older boys set down their boards and joined in the fun! Surfer Dudes is an excellent beach toy for staying safe in the shallows while keeping the young ones entertained for hours.
The Kickstarter campaign has been started to crowd fund the necessary costs to cover the molds for manufacturing and to order the first batch of Surfer Dudes for distribution. The manufacturers are standing by with designs in hand—all they need is the cash to start production. All materials in Surfer Dudes are non-toxic and American made.
