Yep wet gear bucket.

Boards in covers if put in the car.

Brush to quickly brush down kite bags, feet before getting in.

Don't have kids or a dog and if you do don't take them to the beach with you kiting, or ignore all the above and just deal with a car you will have to vacuum every weekend!! :angryfire:


A good brush is a must for kiting. My next vehicle will not have any rugs. Although you can get some pretty good rubber mats to try and catch most of the sand and salt water, carpets are just a pain. I think I had more problems with the car getting skanky from spring snowboarding than kiting.

Yea I'm just getting tiered of driving a huge truck and they just keep getting bigger. I'd love to have a sports car but can't justify that. Trucks are so simple as it dosent matter if the back is dirty.

I guess it's plastic bins and brushes for me.

No one has tried those roof boxes?

So I'm buying a new car instead of a truck and I'm worried about keeping it clean inside with all the sand and wet gear... Anyone have some fun ideas to keep your car clean?

Does anyone use those roof boxes for kite gear? Seems good but they would be hot for kites.

Any cool ideas for showers in a car? Lots of people over here have the black PVC pipe on the roof to use for a shower but you don't want that on a car.


No good recommendation for hauling the gear. I store my TT in a snowboard bag and transport it inside the vehicle. Kites stay in their bags, everything else goes into a kids size hockey bag. Not a good system for wet gear.

For the shower I use the Coleman Camp Shower. Best $7 investment ever!

I always pack my kite back into the bag and all my wet gear goes onto my Cabrinha wet bag. This fits my wetsuit, boar dies, helmet, sunglasses, harness and more. It locks tight so no spoilage. Has a waterproof pocket inside also. The is better than buckets etc. best investment ever.

I use a plastic bin as well for all my wet stuff. That seems to keep the water to a manageable level. Boards go into bags that helps with sand. I have cargo area mats for my jeep so that also makes clean up easier, just shake them out every now and then.

you should see my van,.... more sand in it than on the beach.
For me my Van is transportation, work, play etc.
If I had more cash, I would have a second car.... probably just as dirty. It's just a :thing".
Unless I had to show up for business meetings, then a clean car is understandable.
I don't :-)

Hey, isn't kinda show off ish to show up at your local spot in an expensive ride?
I can only think of one here :-) ...(not tut)(like your ride)

Four critical items are required:

1) Brush
2) IKEA bag for wets
3) IKEA bag for drys
4) Boardbag

Change out of your wets standing in the IKEA bag, brush off your board and the underside of the wets IKEA bag and your car should be just fine :-)
