Surf’s up! The world’s first selfrighting, self surfing toy
Wahu Surfer Dudes ticked all the right boxes to win the 2015 Toy & Hobby Retailer Industry Awards Outdoor Toy of the Year.
The team at Wahu were thrilled to receive the news that Wahu Surfer Dudes was the winner of the Outdoor Toy of the Year Award in the 2015 in the Toy & Hobby Retailer Industry Awards.
Thrilled, but not too surprised as the Dudes have been surfing out the door all summer.
So what makes the Dudes so special? Wahu Surfer Dudes Powered by Waves are the world’s first self-righting, self-surfing toy!
Simply throw your Dude into the surf and they’ll catch’n shred the waves and throw down radical tricks as they surf right back to you.
“There is actually quite a bit of technology behind the design of the Wahu Surfer Dudes,” says Tim Britz, managing director of Britz Marketing, which owns the Wahu brand. “From the unsinkable foam boards to the patented Dual Chrome-Tech Internal Ballast System, the Self-Righting Hydrodynamic Manta Wing and the precise angles and balance of each component to ensure each Dude really does surf!
“For an outdoor toy the Wahu Surfer Dudes tick all the boxes. They’re colourful, collectable and at a great price point but ultimately I think it’s the simplicity of their function as well as being a lot of fun that resonates with kids,” Britz says.
There are six different Dudes and Dudettes to collect, from Margaret River Max to Bondi Bec, all with individual gnarly board graphics.
And the best thing – they’re powered by waves, no batteries required!
Expect to see Dudes ripping up beaches right around Australia.
And, keep an eye on this space, there might be more Wahu Surfer Dude characters coming soon!
