About The Creator
Whale Sacs are handmade by me, Tina Oakley now as we've grown, the whole family is helping out! We are based out of Portland, OR.
The beginning of Whale Sacs came about in my first year of playing disc golf in Wisconsin where the summers are hot and humid. My family is extremely creative, it runs in our genes so I've taken interest in numerous hobbies including disc golf, sewing, music, bowling, and many others, which led to the creation of the Whale Sac that exists today. Originally the Whale Sac was simply a square pouch with whale themed fabric, but over time it transformed into this Whale shaped, tie-on sac.
Tina section used to say "Tina 's dream is to be a touring professional disc golfer" but we've come a LONG way thanks to you and many supporters of Whale Sacs. NOW I can happily write that I AM a touring Professional Disc Golfer! How cool is that!? My dream now is to spread these happy whales around the country and hopefully the world.

Whale Sacs – The Beginning
Years ago I started what was called the “Whale Club”. I would help mend my friend’s clothes by patching them up but only using whale fabric. There were only a few handfuls of people in the whale club in the beginning. Once I began disc golfing in the hot and humid summers of the midwest, I decided to make my own hand drying bags with this same whale fabric, and so the first “Whale Sac” was born. Initially this was simply a square filled with clay, and eventually there was also a piece added to tie it onto my disc golf bag. In the summer of 2014 during the 2014 Worlds Disc Golf Championship in Portland, OR, an idea was born to make the sacs into the shape of an actual whale using the tail to tie on. Now there are countless members of the Whale Club.
