Who. What. Why.
Ideas are funny things, and SWAYY is no exception to this.
The late Tennessee summer of 2013 marks the true birth of SWAYY when few buddies and I (Seth) all decided to do a little hammock camping. Before we all would send it off to different corners of the globe for a year abroad, we wanted to have one last bro sesh on the beautiful Ocoee Lake in Eastern Tennessee. So we stuffed our hammocks, filled our canoes, and before we knew it we are all headed for our little island on the lake… And that’s where things got chilly.
All growing up I’ve heard that “the bridge ices before the road” because of wind swiftly passing under and over it sucks up all its heat, and this trip shed new light on what that truly meant. CBS (Cold Butt Syndrome)... It is a real issue, and it was at that very moment that the idea for SWAYY was born.
And the rest, well, it’s now our history. But the reason why we do what we do isn't just for kicks, the awesome gear we create, or even the money.
"...the reason why we do what we do isn't just for kicks, the awesome gear we create, or even the money."
Each year we send a percentage of sales overseas to Papua, Indonesia to help build jungle schoolhouses for kids who have never heard of the alphabet, seriously. We are solely set on making an impact that will benefit generations to come. This isn't just what we do, but it is the entire reason why we are doing what we are doing.
So jump on board and remember...
