Quipmo’s Adventure Has Begun!

It’s been an absolute whirlwind but we’ve been blown away by how incredibly positive the feedback has been so far! www.quipmo.com

What an absolutely amazing start we’ve had to the Quipmo adventure! We’ve received so much incredibly positive feedback, received so much interest and have already incorporated numerous pieces of awesome feedback that we’ve received from our users to make the Quipmo experience even better!! 

It’s just the beginning but we’re making adventure easy!

 

A Startup – one foot after the other …

There’s nothing quite like setting up a start up – every day is new and your task list just keeps growing – but that’s what makes it fun – the constant problem solving and the constant looking at what might be – the constant aim of creating something awesome! The thing that is perhaps most fun however is being able to try new things and make changes to improve Quipmo. We just want to create a community where our gear owners and our gear renters have an amazing experience. From our perspective all of our work to date has just earnt us our place at Everest’s base camp – the mountain is in front of us – it’s time for us to simply put one foot after the other and remember exactly what we’re trying to achieve – for Quipmo to be the place where people can rent gear, or rent out their gear safely, efficiently and with a process that is, well … easy. 

Celebrating the little things

After spending nearly twelve months working behind the scenes on Quipmo, it’s been nothing shy of phenomenally exciting to have launched site in beta! Like any startup Chris, Max and the Quipmo team are putting in a huge amount of effort behind the scenes and like with any great journey it’s important to celebrate the wins along the way! There’s already been a number of things to celebrate but there really was nothing like the first listing post our beta launch – a full kite surfing kit listed in Auckland, New Zealand!! Almost as exciting was the very first kayak listing in our paddle category!! 

It really is just the beginning but we are definitely taking steps forward – one at a time.

Another great reason to celebrate

On another note completely and something that has absolutely nothing to do with building Quipmo but that has had Chris smiling from ear to ear is the purchase of a new toy – a JS Hyfi Black Box2! Rated the 2016 SBIA Board of the Year – it’s definitely got an incredible rap! We keep you posted on exactly how Chris goes with it but all of the details on these awesome boards can be found on JS’s site.

For interest Chris weighs 80kgs and at 37 is well past his prime paddling days. He’s gone with a 5′ 11″, 20″, 2 7/16″ – 30.5 Ltr model and all of the other dimension options are noted the graphic.

To see the Hyfi in action – there’s no better example than the footage in the JS vid below:

Quipmo is gathering momentum and together we are going to create an awesome community where adventure is made easy. Our first step is to build up the number of listings on the site so that adventure really is at people’s fingertips.

Where is Quipmo from

Quipmo is the brainchild of Australian’s Chris Evans and Max Taylor. Chris and Max met as housemates in 2015. From day 1, it became apparent that they both shared a passion for travel and the outdoors. Whilst the standard 9-5 was very much their focus, it was the thrill of weekend adventures and holiday travel that was cherished the most.

Life was hectic for the two as they juggled study and work but many nights were spent reminiscing about adventures had all over the globe. Throughout the countless hours of banter, a common theme emerged – finding quality gear for an adventure whilst travelling was always a challenge. Both agreed that the difficulty and cost of transporting gear made having an adventure away from home especially difficult. This had been a source of great frustration over the years, and was the key problem to solve – how to make access to quality gear for adventures more efficient, affordable and readily available.

After countless brainstorming sessions, thousands of hours of research, spamming friends with surveys and almost a year’s worth of skype credit, Quipmo is born! A place where adventures are made easy!

Adventure Made Easy!

Quipmo is the surf, bike and snow peer to peer gear rental marketplace for like minded travellers and locals who share a passion for adventure!

Introduction to Quipmo

So first off – what is Quipmo?

Quipmo is the surf, bike and snow peer to peer marketplace that lets individuals and stores rent their gear to like minded travellers and locals who share a passion for adventure!

We all need adventure!

Maybe you’re travelling in a remote part of the world and keen to rent off a local, maybe you’re away on business and just want to take a SUP out for a paddle after work rather than using the hotel gym, or maybe you just want to try something new – whether that’s a new sport or a new board? All of these things should be easy and all of these things should be right at your fingertips!

But if you’re like us there’s a good chance that you have a few pre-loved pieces of gear lying around the house too ..

And here’s where things get interesting – why not put those bits of gear to work and make a few bucks off them, and not to mention make someone else’s day too! We just wanted a place where people could rent out their gear safely, efficiently and with a process that was, well … easy.

What do we want out of Quipmo?

Just for people to lead a life full of adventure and to never have lack of gear getting in the road of making that happen. There’s no better feeling than carving your own path – whether that’s chasing a wave, smashing a trail, shredding your own line down a mountain or boosting into the sky with a kite. Our vision is pretty simple really – the more often people are stoked the more stoked people will be! We want people to get out and #AdventureToday!
