Good to see some other eurovans. I'm in the process of building a rack and putting a air compressor with tank underneath the floor. For those days when the turbine has to come out. I love mine even tho it looks like piss right now.

It is odd so many of us who still got "vans" 8)

One of the good things about kitesurfing compared to windsurfing or sup, is "the gear packs down to almost nothing" so you dont need a huge car, but can just go by bike or bus.

And then many of us still got huge cars ha haa :naughty:

But if going 2 persons on a drive to a spot, with 2 maybe 3 waveboards each, and the full kite quiver - which typically is at least 4 and maybe 5 or 6 kites each, a car gets stuffed pretty fast, right ? :lol:

So a nice luxury to have "room".

:D Peter

True, but i have my van mainly to be able to sleep in kite spots :roll:

and then its nice to travel with extra "space" isnt it :allbegood:

i used to go kiting with a "convertible" and it did the job but then i couldnt sleep on it for the weekend, have a shower or a fridge with cold beers for the post kite session hahahaha :thumb:

And this ends the end of my speech trying to emulate Peter´s style, which is a funny thing isnt it :nono:

:D Speedy

@ Gbleck
You can bust out a leef blower and all the sand goes out the back. Fold down the front seat and you can store a 190x70 raceboard inside with all your kites.


Exactly :D

I'm enjoying this thing. A bit mechanically testy but I got it for way cheap. Have the kinks mostly dialed now. Decent gas mileage and not so pristine the dogs can't ride along. Does decent in the snow - front wheel dr.
