Manta5's Founder Guy Howard-Willis, has always had a passion for water sport and cycling, driving him together with his son to found Toperdo7 - an online business that grew to become New-Zealand's largest outdoor and adventure sports retailer.
The hydrofoiling bike concept literally came to Guy’s mind in a dream - a dream where he pushed off from his holiday home jetty and rode a bicycle-type product that brought him the same feeling and freedom as his road bike. He cruised out into the bay before being greeted by a pod of dolphins which swam alongside him as he rode.
7+ years of development, 8 major prototypes, dozens of specialist consultants, hundreds of design iterations and tests. The result, a product that delivers one of the most unique experiences on water to date.
