Wettie Backpack

 





Hi


In the last few weeks I've been dealing with Ventsit or ACS10 material, and I have also been surfing most weeks. The surfing usually involves a walk to the beach with wetsuit, wax, sunscreen, legrope and board.  At one stage I had a home made surfboard trailer for the trek but I abandoned that for whatever reason. 

But for now, I decided on something different, also to make the trek easier, a wetsuit backpack from the acs10. The material is light and completely immune to water, and I had a few bits spare that had been on recumbent trikes and were now a bit worse for wear.

Making it took about 2 hours and used a 26" bike tube as the strap, which is sewn  / tied to the side of the pack facing my back. I sawed off the valve on the tube before fitting it, and the hole where the valve used to be is covered by a patch. It took about 2 hours to make, and I used it today with success. 

Regards
