Hailing from the shores of Bondi Beach, Australia, DisruptSports.com is shaking up sports equipment with forward-thinking and disruptive technologies.Disrupt Sports, is an online platform that allows the user to choose from a number of sports equipment, individually design up, and tailor to their needs.
This order then gets fed through to our own network of manufacturers where we have negotiated and contracted to give you the same price as off the shelf, mass-made equipment
.Disrupt was founded on the simple idea of creating a piece of equipment with your personality, and individual needs in mind. We help you custom make your own equipment. From the dimensions to the construct and even the artistic design, we are able to give you expert advice and guidance on the path to creating your dream sports equipment (surfboards, snowboards, skateboards & yogamats).
In the past two years we've expanded our sales remit to work with brands and their agencies to help create custom branded sports equipment to complement their existing lines as well as for promotional purposes. Brands include Hermes, Corona, Fitbit, Adidas, Puma and many more.
