We’ve decided to help you out this Christmas, so we’ve rounded up a bunch of our favourite experiences that we think would make the perfect gift for your dude.
Loqules is a peer to peer marketplace that connects people with tastemakers that create rad experiences in the lifestyle space of surf, skate, snow, music, art, food, fashion, art and fitness. If you think about how AirBNB that solves the problem of where to stay, Loqules solves the problem of cool stuff to do once you get there.
We’re looking for TWO interns to join us in our Sydney based office and help change the way people experience the world around them.
Although still operating in a public beta, we’ve been fortunate enough that some very nice people at some very nice publications have been interested in writing about Loqules and our mission of changing the way people experience the world around them. Instead of having one of those weird bars on the front page of our website with who has written about us, we decided instead to post a self congratulatory blog post collating them instead! We kid… kinda.
When I was 16 years old I started a record label in high school with some friends called Below Par Records. Throughout the years, we signed some great bands including Something With Numbers, The Scare, Brand New and Yellowcard but our most successful artist in Australia was Kisschasy.
I signed them when I was 19 and was fortunate enough to travel the world with them, make some killer records, watch them grow into a household name and most importantly make lifelong friends.
At Loqules we are super lucky to get to work with a bunch of inspiring people that follow their passions and their heart on a daily basis, it makes creating a platform to facilitate rad experiences extremely gratifying. We have a wide range of Loqule experts on our platform that are crushing it and we’re also stoked to have some world champions among the ranks – Scotty James, Ben Player and Harley Ingleby.
We caught up with these guys to pick their brains about what it takes to be the best in your field and recognised as the best in the world at what you do.
With Father’s Day just around the corner and a barrage of lame “things” you could get him that he doesn’t really need, we thought we’d highlight 5 awesome experiences on Loqules that will stoke your dad out and make you the most popular person in your family.
We’re also running a $50 August promotion so you’ll get $50 off any experience you book in August.
To celebrate August (because hey who doesn’t celebrate August?) we are giving all new members that sign up for Loqules a FREE $50 credit towards their first experience.
Here at Loqules we’re stoked to have an ever-growing list of influencers and taste-makers joining us and offering awesome experiences. The lifestyle space of food, among others, we have Claire Van Vuuren(@bloodwoodntown), Head Chef and co-owner of Bloodwood in Newtown. We’re proud to introduce new Loqule Patrick Friesen(@patrickfriesen), Head Chef at Papi Chulo in Manly and creator of Work In Progress pop-up bar in Sydney’s CBD who is offering the ultimate slow cooked meats experience.
We thought we’d ask Claire and Patrick to share a seasonal, warming recipe for you to have a go at whilst winter is still lingering around.
We’re really starting to ramp up Loqules by adding more and more rad experiences every week.
Today we’re super amped to announce our first snow experiences in Australia and New Zealand, with professional snowboarders Scotty James and Will Jackways joining the Loqules platform.
