Bring some comfort in to your Sea Swimming and protect yourself from the elements with a reliable, durable and practical product that gives back through up-cycling.

Curly Changing Mats are water resistant due to the threads of grass and have a wide surface area allowing it to dry quickly.

On the bottom of the mat there are pores to allow water drainage from the top surface and there is a cushion effect due to the 10mm thickness.

 

CC Mats Story 

Since I started sea swimming I have been astounded at the amount of people injured, many of them from standing on sharp objects in the cold sand, stones or concrete surfaces that surround our swimming spots as they had no protection or comfort for their feet.

The people were bringing hot water bottles, flasks with hot tea or coffee, woolly hats and changing robes but nothing for their feet. When I was growing up I was always told to keep your feet and head warm at all times.

This is where I came up with the simple idea of Curly Changing Mats (CCM) , a very simple but creative and colourful way of keeping your feet warm while changing before and after you enter the water. Why not look after your feet with CC Mats? nothing worse than cold toes!

Up-Cycle Movement 

In my current profession as a landscape gardener for JC Curley Landscapes, we use a lot of Astroturf which we buy off Sanctuary synthetics. The Astroturf that they supply is of high grade and comes in a range of different colours. 


The problem is all off-cuts currently go to landfill but now we have a new use for them. You could say we are up-cycling to a certain degree by making Curly Changing Mats. By talking with Sanctuary Synthetics, they have agreed to work with us to create a great product rather than dump their off-cuts, a win win for everyone.

For use and general storage

For use and general storage of the Curly Changing Mat you quite simply curl it up like a sushi roll. It has a black elastic band etched to a wooden nut; it is easy to un-curl and re-curl when using the mat. The Curly Changing Mat is super light, weighing no more than 350 grams, making it ideal to fit into your swim bag or the side pocket of your rucksack, or just carry it in your hand.


The Curly Changing Mat is very suitable to be used in all weather conditions as the threads on the back of the mat make it slip resistant.
