We love water. We play on it and we live on it. But we were tired of trying to keep our electronics dry which was a huge takeaway from the joy we get from our time on the water, so we set out to solve a really big problem. How could we carry and keep our electronic items above water and safe from getting wet? And not only wet, but protected from sand and dirt? ugo®


We are two women, one of whom has overcome the odds having survived two bouts of breast cancer and the naysayers who have told us 100% waterproof the way we wanted to do it couldn’t be done. Three years later we are excited to share that we’ve sold thousands of ugo®'s and have had zero customer phone fails.
