Beach Beginnings
The Myhoody Story

Mount Maunganui businesswoman,  Shereen Bell has been a beach-lover all her life.

Shereen has had a love for swimming from her early years. Shereen grew up around pools, and the beach. She enjoyed camping trips away with her family and joining the Red Beach Surf Lifesaving Club in her teens. Shereen was inspired to design her innovative microfibre hooded towel. Shereen observed the difficulty of parents trying to get their kids and teens out of the swimming pool. Getting quickly dried off, into the car to home for dinner was a common goal. Something Shereen herself could easily relate to!

Shereen sought to transform family beach days, making it easy to pack for and pack up afterwards. She envisioned a hoodie towel product that would eliminate all that scrambling to throw sandy beach towels on the kids. Have you ever tried to simultaneously gather beach toys, boards and bags? Washing off all the sand and keeping warm was no longer a struggle with the Myhoody surf poncho hooded towel. 

As parents to twins, Shereen and her husband Tim have had many family holidays on the beach, boating at the lake.

They love fishing and spending weekends away watching their children thrive in their natural environment. They understand that beach and water play is woven into the fabric of their hooded towels just as most Kiwi lifestyles.

Shereen’s hoodie towel creation.

Myhoody surf poncho hoodie towel, is a beach essential. Grab and go – easy!

Shereen creatively envisioned a need for a stylishly designed garment using a practical fabric. Her hoodie styled towels are lightweight, quick drying and fit every family member. Myhoody surf poncho hooded towels are a Kiwi essential for summer days and winter chills.

My husband and I love our Myhoody hooded towel. We use them around our pool and on the beach for sun and wind protection. They are a perfect weight, very light to wear when wet and quick drying. Great surf poncho hooded towels for getting changed out of togs underneath.

My kids love their new Myhoody! hooded towels. They are perfect for at the beach or around the pool, especially when they are in and out of the water all the time. Very comfy and they dry super fast! We highly recommend these surf poncho hooded towels.
