Hi Helen
Tim & I just wanted to say a big thank you for arranging our Paddle Board Bag ‘Summer Time’ with such short notice pre-christmas. We were absolutely wrapped with the bag, not only did it arrive before we went away and needed it, it is so well made and we just love it!!
We had the board and bag up with us on a boat in the Marlborough Sounds and it worked really well tied onto the side of the boat.
Your website is super functional and easy to use and it has been a real pleasure dealing with Stash-It. Thanks so much and attached is a pic of our bag in action. Cheers Amanda

Helen @ Stash-it.
Stash-it Board Bags have been an integral name in the New Zealand surfing industry for as long as I can remember. Helen Jowsey, the matriarch behind the whole she-bang, has been consistently producing the best in protective sheathing for your stick for over 20 years.

Full credit to the girls/guys at Stash-it for making a kick-arse product!!  I've got a few of their products off the shelf or custom made (this longboard bag inc.) and I'm stoked with the quality of workman ship and materials used. The recycled billboard canvas is awesome and strong as!!  I'm concerned about resource consumption so the fact that not just the billboards but the foam too being a recycled bi-product is really cool. Not many people these days make a product that lasts, because then the customer doesn't need to buy a new one the next year.  I'm happy to pay a bit more if it means its not crap from china that is expected to fall apart. I'm also a big fan of buying NZ made and supporting local industry,  no where, I know of, can you get a customised bag and talk to the person who is going to make it.(and if you catch Helen on a good day she'll make you anything you want!!). Good work Stash-it!!

Love my new cover, Thanks to the team at stash-it.

I just took delivery of my new recycled surfboard bag from NZ manufacturer Stash-it. The thing is that this bag is made out of an old billboard, It's totally unique and I get to lower my carbon footprint. How cool is that!
If you want to have a totally unique, hard wearing and cool looking custom made bag for your surfboard (or snowboard) I urge you to contact Helen. She's a top chick and knows how to make really high quality bags.

Hey fellas, I've had my stashit bag for my shortie for 15 years and still going strong. Awesome gear. Cheers T 2010

Just writing to say a big thankyou.
I was competing at the Royal New Zealand Air Force Interbase Boardriders competition in May earlier this year, and won a sweet Stash-it boardbag kindly donated by you guys!
The 6.4 bag is gonna be perfect for the 6'3 custom I'm looking at getting made, I was stoked to win such a nice prize!
We really appreciate your sponsorship for these Air Force surfing events and it gives everyone an incentive to compete a little harder when there is such cool prizes up for grabs.
Thanks Stash-it!!

I just want to thank you for the prompt and pleasant way you dealt with the faulty zippers for my waveski board and beach bag. To get a reply that the repair had been finished in less than 24 hours was great! Beside that the manner in which it was dealt with was really great, no questions asked about the fault and no waiting to get the bag when I picked it up.
It is simply good business: produce a great product, back the quality of the work (because your staff are obviously very skilled), and treat customers as if they are the only ones that matter!
I will definitely recommend you to anyone who could use your products and services!
Again Thanks for the service

I am actually really impressed with the quality of my new kite board bag -it's much better than a brand-name one and obviously fits much better. If it's ok with you I would like to put some pictures up on kiteforum.co.nz

Cover arrived today - looks great! Just to let you know I appreciate the fast and professional service you deliver which sadly seems to be pretty rare these days.
So it stands out when you get it. Thanks again

Just letting you  know that my ski bag arrived on Saturday and it is fabulous. I have packed it with our skis and poles and the boot bag with my boots and ski jacket and pants. Thanks very much for the great product. When Reece gets his own snowboard I will be ordering a bag for him as well. Keep up the great work as your product is fantastic. Kind Regards

Hi Helen
We just wanted to email and say a big THANK YOU for the fabulous covers that you have made for the mobile Activboards.  We have had some great comments about these as well as them being practical and protecting the systems.  The covers with the extra flaps are working really well and we thank you and your team once again for a fantastic job. Kind regards, Christine Wilkinson, Office Manager,
