Tips to store your summer sports equipment like a pro!

The seasons are changing! With summer almost over, it’s time to put away the summer fun till next year and keep your summer sports equipment well maintained throughout its days in storage.
Here are some top tips to prep your summer sports gear for storage!

1. Windsurfing

This super fun water sport combines both the fun of surfing and sailing, all rolled into one! Expand your windsurfing equipment’s lifespan by removing any trace of salt and sand from your board, sail, mast and lines by hosing it down with clean water and leave to dry. Check the pockets and seams of sail as sand can get stuck inside. Roll the sail tightly from head down to prevent creases on the sail and remember to place all the other windsurfing items (spars, lines and leading edges) enclosed in the zipper bag.

2. Paragliding

Ride the wind with this go to sport for every thrill seeker! Always check for wear and tears on your paragliding equipment and patch it up whenever needed. Clean your paraglider with water and wipe it with a soft cloth. When storing, roll your wing loosely bunched up so it can breathe and always store it in a dry location away from humidity.

3. Kayaking

A kayak is not to be mistaken as it’s close brother, the canoe! Kayaking is where you sit with your legs in front and the paddle has two blades on each side. While, the difference with canoeing is where you kneel and the paddle only has one blade on one side. Keep your kayak in tip top condition, by removing any trace of salt and sand from your kayak with a good spray down to avoid brown staining and discolouration. Always store your kayak indoors, safely away from the sun and UV rays and never hang it by the handles or your kayak will take the shape of a “banana”!
