The Mami Wata x Missibaba ‘Banananananas’ luxury board bag collaboration started as an initiative to raise funds to build a clubhouse for African youth surf charity Waves for Change in Harper, Liberia.
The process of bringing the brands together has been such a positive adventure that we felt we should continue it. Thus, having a custom board bag service came about.
Banana’s being our common fixation we decided that this should be the motif for the board bag. When ordering your board bag you will go to the Missibaba Studio in Cape Town to choose your own colourway and placement for each banana from their extensive leather library that houses juicy leathers from around the globe. All materials and trims have been selected to endure the travelling life of a board bag – from the vinyl to the solid brass trims.
The Banananaaas board bag can be ordered in following sizes:
Short Boards- 6ft: from R20 000
Medium Boards- 6-8.5ft: from R23 000
Long board- 8.5ft: from R25 000
In July, members of the public can get involved in the club house house fundraise by visiting the GoFundMe platform on the Mami Wata website where they can buy unique Mami Wata products, such as the first Mami Wata X Missibaba custom surfboard bag, as well as African surf experiences. The proceeds from every purchase via the GoFundme platform will go towards the construction and operation of the club house.
