Yo! What’s going on guys? New episode of Badass Asian Dudes.
This week’s guest is Andy Park, the founder of 7till8. 7till8 makes custom fit surf and dive wetsuits tailored to your body’s exact specifications. You just go on their website, send your measurements, and then they send you a custom wetsuit in a few weeks.
You see this a lot with clothing for example suits, shirts, jackets - but i remember when Andy and his former business partner came up with this idea years back - I thought it was pretty genius because custom and made to measure clothing was getting big in those days.
Of course just having an idea is nothing. The hardest part is executing it and actually turning it into something.
But what do you do if you have no experience with wetsuits and you’ve never made a wetsuit before?
And also how do you compete against the already established wetsuit companies out there like Body Glove, Billabong, and O’Neill that have been in the game for years?
All they had was the idea of creating a custom wetsuit company.
That’s the position Andy and his former business partner were in.
