Matt grew up in Perranporth, Cornwall, and the beach was never far away. Matt lives in Hong Kong now, and enjoys trekking and paddleboarding in the warmer waters! This also means he can be close to some of our manufacturing partners, and ensure the transparency and high standards so integral to us. Matt also has huge experience in the design, sourcing and accreditation of textiles and clothing.
Mark grew up in the rain of Lancashire, spending many weekends sailing and cycling in the Lake District. Now with a family, Mark spends a lot of time paddleboarding, dinghy sailing and walking his dogs. It was spending time (and getting cold) before and after activity that provoked the development of the Sea Monster… protection and warmth with a more ethical approach to sustainability.
Melissa also grew up in Perranporth, which is no surprise, as she is the sister of Matt! Melissa lives near the south coast, loves the sea and has recently taken up open water swimming, so is a personal user of the Sea Monster changing robe!
The heart of ddipp is, and will continue to be, high quality, useful, and ethical design. We want our products to help you enjoy the best bit of your day!
