    Under Van Storage
    « on: September 01, 2021, 11:06:55 am »
    Hi all,

    So at the ripe age of 40 I've decided to give surfing a go  :) My 'van is in Newquay after all and I can't have my kids out doing me in a couple of years  ;D

    I have booked a couple of lessons etc but then I started to think forwards in time. If I come to buy a surfboard for me and probably the kids, where am I going to store it? A beginners board is approx 9ft long, not something you want to have lying around in the living room area. Also when I lend out to friends and family I don't want them to have to deal with it.

    That got me thinking to storing it under the 'van. I couldn't find any cabinet solutions so I thought about hanging it off the bottom in a bag and having it chained there to stop it being half inched.

    Anyone else got any thoughts on what could be done?

    Might be easier if you took up frisbee instead  ;D .
    I can’t think of anything , people on our site have canoes under their vans but we’re on a small rural site so no real need to chain anything up.
    Have a wander round your site to see what others do.
    Have you got decking or skirting you could ‘hide’ it behind ?

    Even frisbee may be a bit of a push these days  :( I'm sure this old dog has a couple of new ticks up its sleeves.

    Under the decking is a good shout. I can screw into it. No skirt though. Only issue I can think of is access as we are on a fairly steep hill. I'll have to have a good look next time I am down there.

    Most people seem to rent on our site or don't seem to be into water sports so I haven't really seen any gear lying around
