Hi all,

I have the opportunity to buy a cheap second hand SUP. I am keen on buying one second hand to try out and maybe upgrade later.


Unfortunately my storage options are extremely limited and the only place I have to store the board is in my back garden (exposed to sunlight and rain).


I was thinking of trying to buy a sturdy bag and some sort of rack that I can hang on my fence. Hopefully this bag will protect it from the rain and sun a bit. Unfortunately this is my only storage option.


I am very curious to hear anyone's opinion on my plan, perhaps the SUP life is just not for me just yet.


Many thanks in advance for any helpful comments.

My SUPs are all Jimmy Lewis boards but there is something in the epoxy that protects against sunlight. I have some that have been leaning against my shed outside for over 5 years and they still are good, can't tell the difference between the side exposed and the down side. They do get sunlight but mostly shaded. The board I use I keep on my car rack pretty much 24/7 for the last 2 years. No Problem.

"I remember South Africa in the late 70's, sleeping on the beach at J-bay, smoking ganja with the blacks. On weekends we'd go to the pub in East London to drink beer and fight with the Afrikaners. They liked to fight, I liked to fight. It was a good time"
