Kitesurf bags are large protective bags that are designed to fit multiple kites, lines, control bar, and a board or two. They often have extra room for tools and other accessories. A good bag will be padded to protect the equipment inside and have durable material outside to last a long time while being dragged over often rough conditions. The material should resist abrasions and be tough enough to withstand years of sea, sun and sand exposure.
Kitesurf bags offer the best way of protecting equipment every day. They keep the equipment out of the sun and away from abrasive sand. UV rays from the sun can damage a kite and lines a lot quicker than most people think. They can be severely weakened even from limited exposure to sun in the back of a car. Sand and salt are another problem all together.
Kitesurf bags protect the equipment from premature weakening from sand exposure. Equipment left exposed on a beach can be pelted with sand from all directions. This abrasive material will slowly wear out lines and kites making them ineffective and possibly a danger to use. It is important to clean all equipment with a freshwater bath and allow to dry before storing in a bag for any amount of time. This simple step will allow the equipment to remain usable for years and years.
