Is this case completely waterproof, or just highly water resistant? Would my iPhone be okay if it were mounted on a surfboard?

I would like to try is for surfing if it will definitely keep my iPhone safe.

    The case is totally waterproof and works great for surfing. We should have our surf mount out shortly. While the current mount will work, the surf mount will have flotation and a larger attachment area.

    Optrix was designed to go where you go. With a water resistant case Optrix can go out and play in the rain, get dropped in a puddle or film any sport that might get messy.
