Reef Surf Tent Concept

20 August 2010 | 8:52 am

Designed by LifeStyleDesign for Reef, this surf tent concept is meant to provide quick shelter on the beach when you’re far from civilization or just want to be able to roll out of bed in the morning and hit the waves.

Reef Surf Tent Concept

Here are the specs for this concept:

  • The tent has two parts: the inflatable sleep pod and the adjustable canopy—both of which pack snugly into what doubles as an ice chest. The two parts can be used together or separately and in either case provide a comfortable sleeping den and a shaded lounge area.
  • The inflatable sleep pod eliminates the difficulty of traditional tent assembly in low light or tight space conditions. Inflated with a foot pump, the air is stored in sectioned compartments to maintain function in the case of puncture. The waterproof skin is coupled with ample ventilation to prevent condensation and excessive heat.

The canopy is anchored by containers filled with either rocks, sand or water and the connection ropes cinch down the shelter from its highest position to its lowest to protect from sun, rain and wind, respectively. Mesh siding on the canopy provides a ventilated storage compartment for boards and wetsuits.

We are not sure when the concept is due for production phase but when the tent will be available we’ll get one!
