  • Are you wondering who is behind wiemeer and how it came about?
    We are behind wiemeer - 2 creative minds (like to dive into waves) - Annika and Nadine. We met on the island of Fuerteventura in search of waves, adventure and the sea.What was missing after the daily surfing session - a cozy poncho, which is not only practical and fairly manufactured, but was also nice to look at. The ponchos we designed for ourselves soon became ponchos we sewed ourselves for friends, and so the idea came up of founding our own small label to provide our friends and their friends with ponchos and an alternative to the conventional surf ponchos to our throwaway and consumer society.No sooner said than done - words became deeds and so the idea of founding the label wiemeer came about bit by bit.
  • What material are the surf ponchos made of?
    Our surf ponchos are made from high-quality cotton terry cloth with an Oeko Tex Standard 100 certificate. Terry cloth is not only cuddly soft and warm, but also absorbs moisture well and is particularly absorbent. So perfect to change into after surfing and snuggle up!
  • Where are the surf ponchos made?
    We manufacture the surf ponchos on demand. In other words, every surf poncho is sewn for you by us (Annika & Nadine) on request. Instead of the usual mass production in developing countries, we manufacture on request to avoid overproduction and to offer a fair and sustainably manufactured surf poncho. From the few leftovers that are left over from the production of a poncho, we make reusable cosmetic pads & in between, with larger leftovers still recycled surf ponchos to really leave hardly any waste behind.We sew in our studio with a view of the mountains & sometimes also in our second home by the sea, on Fuerteventura.
  • Which is the right size?
    We offer our surf ponchos in the sizes Short, Medium & Long as well as in Mini, Kids & Youth. The adult sizes only differ in length, not in width. We would be happy to help you choose the right size - feel free to contact us at any time at: or take a look at our Sizeguide. Since every poncho is made to order, we are happy to accommodate special length/width requests. For a small surcharge of € 5,- we also offer XL, if you would like to have an extra long/wide poncho. We ask you to choose your order carefully & to ask twice if you have any questions or doubts!
  • Can the poncho designs be changed?
    You are welcome to change our given models with a different color choice. If you have special wishes for your surf poncho, we also offer you the opportunity to create your own dream poncho with us.

  • How long does it take to manufacture & Delivery?
    Normally, our production and delivery time is about 3 weeks, since every surf poncho is made on request. Good things take time - your surf poncho is not only fair & sustainable, but also made with a lot of love. Anticipation is known to be the greatest joy! ... the next surf trip/birthday is coming up sooner? For surf poncho & gift emergencies we will try to find a solution! :) Just write to us and tell us your dilemma:
  • Can the poncho be washed in the washing machine?
    Your poncho can be washed in the washing machine at 30-40°C. Incidentally, it is quite normal for terrycloth fabrics to lose excess fluff during the first few washes. It is best not to overload or underload the washing machine, otherwise there will be increased friction within the washing drum, which in turn can lead to more fluff. You are also welcome to do without fabric softener, as this forms a film veil and the superfluous lint cannot be removed properly. It is best to wash with towels of the same color or darker color as the fabric can easily stain. We recommend washing the surf ponchos at 30°/40° to protect the material and to preserve the pattern of the pockets for as long as possible. The poncho can also be washed at 60°.
  • Can the surf poncho be returned?
    In principle, you can of course also exchange or return the surf poncho you have ordered (within 14 days within the framework of the statutory right of withdrawal). In this case, the buyer bears the return costs of the goods ((according to the latest consumer rights directive of 06/13/2014). We deliberately do not offer free returns - this means that products are selected in a more targeted manner and with more care. If you are not sure about the size or color selection, we will be happy to advise you to avoid unnecessary returns. This is not only better for us as a small company, but also for the environment because we can avoid unnecessary postage.
  • How much does the shipping cost?
    The shipping costs in Germany and Austria are a flat rate of € 5. In the rest of Europe, a flat rate of € 8. From a purchase value of € 125,- we offer free shipping within the EU. (*Shipping to Switzerland on request) We do not use plastic for shipping and use second-hand boxes to reduce unnecessary packaging materials. This way we can pay a little more attention to the environment together.
  • What happens if my poncho breaks?
    A surf poncho has to be able to withstand a lot - salt water, sun and constant rubbing can leave a mark or two over time. That's why we have our renew your poncho service< /strong>. If your wiemeer surf poncho has a hole, a seam is torn, or your pocket has faded a bit due to the sun and washing, we will do our best to get your poncho back in shape. Send us an email with a photo of your problem to: & we will then send you a non-binding offer for the repair. If you agree, you can send the poncho directly to us so that you can hold it in your hands repaired a little later. So we can pay more attention to the environment together & give one or the other surf poncho its well-deserved second chance to continue to accompany you on your surfing adventures.
  • Why a wiemeer poncho & no other conventional surf poncho?
    Quite simply - your surf poncho should be your companion for all your surfing adventures. Like your surfboard or wetsuit, you should choose it with care - what's good for the environment? For the sea? For you and your skin? We are all environmentally conscious and every little sustainability decision can make the world a little better. Conventional ponchos also serve their purpose, you are quite right - but you should also consider that these are neither manufactured sustainably and under fair working conditions, nor are they made of high-quality materials. It is mass produced, which creates another big problem - overproduction. As a surfer & sea lover, love for nature starts at the beach - but it doesn't stop there. It's about making conscious decisions & preferring to pay a little more to get a durable and high-quality product instead of continuing to buy cheap & fast in a throwaway society.
