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