The Migra surfboard bag is the brainchild of two friends who for more than fifteen years have travelled to remote islands in search of the perfect wave or “rip” as it’s call by surfers. While each destinations yielded a new thrill, the getting there left something to be desired. The biggest challenge they faced on every outing was safely transporting their toys! They needed adequate protection, as well as places to store peripheral gear. Shortly after a surf trip to the Philippines the two friends felt compelled to pool their talents to develop a surfboard bag. The goal was simple, design a bag that would have extra protection and be fully featured.

 

Designing and launching a product successfully can be a daunting task. Many ideas and dreams never gain enough footing to rise with the swell and be carried along into production. However, for Marco and Mirco, Migra’s founders, their passion for surfing, coupled with their collective talents of product designer and business manager, uniquely positioned them for success. The duo spent over two years developing the MIGRA bag seeking out the right materials, tuning the functionality, and insuring that the product was durable and of high quality. The project also received a huge boost by way of a successful Kickstarter campaign.  Without further ado let’s have a look at the design features that make the Migra surfboard product the bag to have.

Overall the design of the Migra Surfboard bag seems to be spot on. The solution is a nice blend of product protection, function, and design appeal. Pricing currently is around €189 which seems like a good price to value proposition. So if you are a surfer looking for that special bag to make travel easier and more organized, I’d say it would be worthwhile to give a serious look at getting your hands on a Migra!
