It all started out of a love for water, sports and adventure. In the early 80s, some friends and I fell in love with windsurfing. We were windsurfing pioneers in Slovenia. And as is normal for pioneers, we had a very strong will but quite poor equipment! We wanted to surf more than those 2 or 3 windy days in summer, so we needed something to keep us warm.
At that time it was impossible to buy this kind of wetsuit in our country. And western European countries were too expensive for us, so I decided to make our own neoprene suits. We bought some neoprene abroad, smuggled it across the frontier and made ourselves our own technical wetsuits. The word spread and what started out of a necessity, turned into a hobby. It then slowly grew in to a full time occupation that was closely related to the things I love.
Now, after more than twenty years of professional activity, passion is still the main driving force at Sandiline. We love what we do, that is why we still develop and produce our gear in our facilities in Slovenia. In order to be fit for their intended purposes, our products are carefully designed by our experts and tested by top-class athletes or professional users before reaching the market.
All the gear we produce is made with the same dedication and passion as those first wetsuits for me and my friends, but now with the benefit of more than two decades of experience and innovation. That experience makes our gear suitable (for specific performances in specific conditions), durable and likeable. Satisfied users, from Olympic medallist to elder ladies who just fell in love with the sea, prove that we’ve chosen the right path - a path we will keep following in the future.
Thanks to all who make this possible!
