We are a small team of recent college graduates who met as roommates at UC San Diego. We love going to the beach, whether it be for surfing, snorkeling, boogie boarding, or just playing around! However, the more we learned about stingrays, the more worried we became. Sharks are the most infamous ocean creatures, but stingrays are a more realistic threat—at some beaches there are literally dozens of stings a day. If you haven't been stung yourself, you probably at least know someone that has... and they can tell you that it isn't much fun! This isn't how the beach was meant to be experienced. With our background in engineering and business we set out to solve this problem and protect beachgoers from injury. And that's how Dragonskin was born!
