About tripstix


Inflatable innovations.

It all started back in 2010 when a group of passionate surfers from the Eisbach river in Munich embarked on a surfing trip. They soon realized that inflatable surfboards are good for traveling, but they are less than ideal to surf.

As a result, they decided to bridge the gap between inflatable toys and real surfboards. Their vision was to build an inflatable surfboard with the performance of a real surfboard. They invented a new technology which allowed them to build a high-performance inflatable surfboard, which can be rolled up and carried in a small backpack.

The invention is the brainchild of Stefan Klare, Doctor of Engineering, founder, head of research & development and CEO of Tripstix.
