Shared economic model, like Uber, basis for house swap biz
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 21 February, 2017 - In the frame of the disruptive innovation, and thanks to the support of local public institutions, Swap and surf (S&s) is still innovating by working on the ultimate network for surfers through sharing economy.
S&s has received a grant from the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region. S&s is now be able to grow without compromising its values. The South West of France is not only a promise land for the outdoors lover, but also a privileged land to develop all kinds of projects related to outdoor activities.
At this point, thanks to the website and with the help of the S&s team, all surf trips projects are achievable for less expenses and a better experience. S&s wants to go further and add a service, not upstream, but while traveling, via a mobile app and relying on the experience and knowledge of local surfers.
An app will complement the digital tool for a full service before, and as you travel. In a collaborative logic that sticks to S&s values, all surfers are welcome to participate in this process.
S&s’s ambition is to offer a geolocalized service of all what a traveling surfer may need, and this global mapping will come from surfers, those who practice, without other intermediaries. Swap and surf will remain a network that only cares about the practice, whatever the level, from the daily practitioner to the one who surf twice a year.
