Building this van taught us a lot of handy skills! Most of the time it was fun, but there was also a bit of hating here and there. Like attaching the roof windows is something I hope I never have to do again. That said, we made it exactly the way we wanted. It has a special design where we can fit 4 slalom boards, 3 freestyle boards, 1 foil board, 2 wave boards, a surfboard and 20 sails! The biggest change from the old van is that the living area is completely separated from the gear storage. No more spooning with the gear while sleeping. We wanted to make it as ‘open’ as possible, without too much stuff here and there. We designed a shower inside that doesn´t take any space. A long process, but worth every minute of it. There’s nothing like taking a hot shower after a day on the water. With a hot water tank and 200 litres of water you can really shower just like you would at home.
