About tripstix


Inflatable innovation

It all started in 2010, when a group of passionate surfers from Eisbach/Munich planned their next surf trip. Instead of bulky and highly fragile hardboards, they decided to look at inflatable boards as an alternative. It quickly became clear that although they were good for traveling, they were by no means a real alternative to a hardboard.

With this Stefan Klare started the TRIPSTIX project with the aim to close the gap between inflatable toys and hardboards. As a result of a long development process, new, patented technologies were created, which made it possible to fulfill Stefan’s vision of a powerful, but small packable inflatable surfboard.

TRIPSTIX is the only company in the world that can build high-precision inflatable objects with unique performance characteristics. A scientific foundation coupled with the claim to excellence of founder and CEO Dr.-Ing. Stefan Klare and his team provide patented and award-winning designs (winner ISPO Award 2020 (Product-of-the-Year); 2nd place Edison Award 2017; winner ISPO BRAND NEW Award 2016).
