Founder / CEO of Dolsey Ltd / Michael Dolsey Designs
Dolsey Ltd, imports and distributes SUPs, Surfboards, Foils, Rashguards, and Accessories.
I have always had a passion for surfing and watersports. In 1991, my car was broken into in CR at the beach, my liscense and glasses stolen. That led me to invent an ankle wallet , to keep my keys and license in /on me while surfing. The sewing of that ankle wallet led to making board shorts for lifeguards and shops, which led me to make rashguards, I am rashguards.com, I then started designing and importing surfboards, SUPs, and accessories, that are more stable and durable, for rental and lesson providers. New upcoming items include electric foil boards, and an electric fin system to power your SUP.
I love my job !!
