Made for adventure. Guaranteed for life.

In the last two hundred years, surfing has evolved from heavy wooden planks ridden by Hawaiian royalty into lighter and smarter modern quad fin composites with aeroflex technology and GPS positioning. Advances in surf technology enhance the sport and make it better for everyone. But while the surfboard has changed over time, the soft travel bags for transporting the boards have stayed the same. ‘Til now.

Crypt Cases™ introduces a new evolution in surfboard travel gear – the first ever, hard travel case with collapsible technology that guarantees your board arrives safely anywhere in the world. Crypt Cases™ patented design combines rigid hard case security with collapsible convenience for easy storage. Too often, surfboards and surf trips have been ruined by unforgiving travel and airport conditions. Crypt Cases is the first hard travel surf case for surf professionals and surf enthusiasts who love their boards and will not settle for anything less to protect them. 

Crypt Cases™ is in the initial rounds of development and will be kicking off a crowd-funding campaign in the coming months. Stay up to date with our progress by signing up here.

Drew Boyles, Founder and Inventor

Drew Boyles is an entrepreneur and world traveler. As a surfer for 27 years, Drew understands the limitations and fragility of travel surf bags in the market today.

Drew Boyles’ entrepreneurial experience spans 25 years of executive leadership with employers such as Brunswick Corp., Starbucks and Andersen Management Consulting, as well as dozens of large and small companies. Drew was the co-chair of Surfrider Foundation, a non-profit environmental organization that works to protect and preserve the world’s oceans. Drew also hopes to travel the world’s top surf destinations with his Crypt Case.
