About Robie Robes

Growing up on the beaches of West Cornwall in the UK, Martyn and Tamsin Tarplee enjoyed all that life by the ocean had to offer. Swimming, surfing, sailing, diving and boating.

The surf and ocean sports culture had seen rapid growth in wetsuits and other technologies that allowed people to enjoy the water in almost any climate or weather. But back on land, Martyn and his friends always found it remarkable that they still struggled with getting changed while wrapped in a towel.

Their lightbulb moment came in 2007 when Martyn and Tamsin designed a combined robe and towel that allowed them to stay warm and dry as well as get changed on the beach without “flashing their derrière”, as it were.

Since then, the demand for Robie Robes has been phenomenal. Their robes have been kicking butt around the world and have become an essential in every surfer, swimmer and ocean sports enthusiast’s kit bag.

The Authentic Robie Robe is made to the highest standard from quality 100% Turkish cotton. Frequently imitated but never bettered, their design has been continually tested and refined to provide a comfortable yet durable robe that will last many a year in the most trying conditions.

Hooded and loose fitting the design is long enough to allow you to dry your whole body, head to toe. It also gives ease of movement allowing you to change clothes easily underneath.

More than just a beach towel; whatever your sport or lifestyle choice, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without your Robie Robe.
