A world that works for everybody
My name is Andy Mindel, and I’ve been making things online since the early days of the internet. I'm passionate about the ocean and anything that makes it easier for people to enjoy the sports they love.
I live near the coast where I spend as much time as possible kite surfing, paddle boarding and mountain biking. Moving to the coast inspired me to make a board carrier to get my board to the beach without using the car.
I hang out with my little dudes as much as possible and take them for travel adventures whenever possible.
A selection of projects I'm currently involved in.
I created Shore Ride to make it easier for me to enjoy paddle-boarding. I needed something I could easily attach to my board or kayak and allow me to walk or cycle to the water. I noticed others struggling with a similar issue so decided to turn the idea into a product called Shore Ride.
This is a farm space that myself and my wife have setup. We wanted to create something together, a space where people could feel earthed and inspired. We have some way to go with our venture but gradually we hope that the vision will unfold and turn into something that we, our kids and community will love.
I started this meetup in my local town of Shoreham-by-Sea to bring together all the entrepreneurial spirits. Those that have started something, those that are thinking about it and any shade in between. Come and join us if you're ever passing by Shoreham.
