Let’s face it, drying your wetsuit is a major pain in the arse, especially when you are trying to cram multiple surfs into one day, let alone in the depths of winter. However, there is now a clever wetsuit hanger with built in deodorising dryer that can dry your wetsuit in under 20 minutes. The Blawesome Wetsuit Dryer is now through the design and development stage and the team behind this ingenious hanger are currently seeking funding on Kickstarter.
It doesn’t matter what sport or activity you use your wetsuit for, whether its is surfing, paddleboarding, swimming, coasteering, bodyboarding, diving or kitesurfing the Blawesome Wetsuit Dryer can and will dry any wetsuit. This isn’t the first wetsuit drying hanger to come to market, but what stands the Blawesome out from the crowd is the sheer volume of air it pushes through your suit – a whopping 60 cubic feet per minute! Not only does it dry your suit in record time the Blawesome also gives you the opportunity to add a specially designed ‘pearl’ which dissolves during the drying process and deodorises and disinfects the wetsuit at the same time.
The Blawesome has been really well thought out and when not in use packs into a cylinder that is just 5.5″ tall including the power cord. When needed, the dryer simply unfolds from the cylinder and can be hung from pretty much anything and includes a magnetic hook for the tailgate of the van!
The Blawesome Wetsuit Hanger will be available on general sale in April 2017 with a retail price of €115, but there are a variety of packages available for backers and the Dory Package will allow you to get your hands on a dryer, car and home charger and 12 deodorising pearls for just €69. Full details of the Blawesome, it’s journey to market and all the Kickstarter packages can be found by following THIS LINK.
