If you love surfing you also love things that make your surfing life easier. And the GoDry wetsuit hanger does just that.
A really simple, yet clever, mobile hanging device so you can dry your wettie wherever you're at. No more having to find a fence or a branch or a bush to hang your rubber on. Instead you just stick the GoDry on the side of your cabbie and there you have it - the perfect wetsuit drying spot!
Cos let's face it - hang the wettie on a fence and you gonna end up with a nail rip in it, or hang it in the tree or on the bush and next time you pull it on you realise you ain't the only occupant! Cue the nice big hairy spider who has made a happy home in the sleeve....
Wayne from R-evolve ZA is the SA distributor of the GoDry wetsuit hanger and gave me one to test drive.
Not only does the GoDry work a treat when you out for a surf and can dry your wettie on your car, but it is also a great option for a convenient place to dry your suit at home. No more puddles on the bathroom floor - just pop this guy up in the shower and bam - dry suit and no mess. Also means you won't rust your towel rail!
Plus the way it lets your suit hang means it's not like a traditional hanger that ends up poking holes through the shoulders of your suit. Instead your suit is folded in half as it hangs over the nicely sized rail - and it means no pressure on your suit - and dried in half the time.
Let's take a quick look at what you get in the box:
Super easy to put it all together and stick on your surface. Even the non-technically minded can manage. Of course, once I'd hung one wettie on it I immediately wanted to see if it could handle more! So on went the second wettie - and no issues, hung onto the wall like a limpet still.
I'd recommend setting it up in your shower so it can drip in there - but for purposes of taking some pics I just had it up on the bathroom wall.
To dry your suit after a sesh just attach the GoDry to the side of your car. It extends far enough away from the attachment point so that it keeps your salty suit well away from your vehicle, so no risk of rust!
You can choose whether to dry your suit in the sun or shade - just pick the appropriate side of your car. Too easy. The design promotes air flow around your suit so gets it dry in the shortest time possible.
The GoDry is super light, and dismantles for easy storage. It really is a pretty damn useful piece of kit.
