The founder of Motley Scoops is the Dutchman Bert van Heerde. A passionate artist and a specialist with decades of experience in the field of metal detection.

With his extensive experience, he commissioned a team of engineers to develop the perfect beach scoop. He then used his artistic nature and vision to give the Motley Beach Scoops their excentric and colorful identity. That’s how Motley Scoops was born. In a nutshell.

A Motley Beach Scoop is a unique beach scoop. Specially designed by Bert and Motley Beach Scoops, together with a team of highly professionel and experienced engineers and detectorists. That should mean something to you. The scoop is made of two-millimeter-thick high-grade Inox steel and is therefore much stronger than carbon, wood or glass fiber. This boy is ready for some heavy duty work.

The handle has an ideal height and is designed with an all round grip thanks to the ingenious hexagon shaped holes. This means you won’t be needing extra tape or foam to get full grip. It also means lighter weight and easier handling. These larger and smaller notches also allow sand and water to drain easily from the handle and scope. You only have to do the light work.

The Motley Beach Scoop has an ingenious two-step footpad, so you can dig carefully or work roughly in each situation. The scoop has high quality welds and a super easy one pin lock system, which makes the handle and scoop very easy to disassemble as a travel concept.
