Windsurf Van and Camper van self conversion - completed.......or is it?

Over the past few days I have finished lots of little jobs and then spent the whole of today tidying the body work up, I left this until last as I dreaded flatting back the overspray where the previous owner had touched up a few bits.....and some of it was right up near the roof bar rails.

I have made side curtains from one type of Hot Sails Maui flag, and a centre curtain that has the Exocet Boards logo facing the rear, and a different style of Hot Sails Maui to the front. This has a split so it envelopes the front seats.

 Finally here is the windsurf kit loaded. I have opted to put a temporary rack over the wheel arch box to hold sails in place. After a session yesterday I am already not happy with this set up and think my original one will be much better with the sails on the floor and boards at an angle above them. Like this it takes too much time to unload and load the van, I like to be able to slide stuff in and out without problem. I will complete this a few days before the National Windsurf Festival and the end of the summer holidays for me.

I am looking foward to a good session on the water tomorrow, followed by a trip to Longleat safari park Sunday and holidays back in Cornwall for the following week.

Good speeds and winds
