Audi TT

Shoot the breeze and stay in the loop with the unhinged and unhooked word on the street.

Anyone kitesurf who drives a TT roadster. Can you fit any boards in the boot? Keen for one, but don't know if the kit would fit?

Anything is possible with a bit of imagination.

I saw a windsurfer who had a TT, had a roof rack, the boards were longer than the car, good look.

Cant you either slot them in behind the seats, or put one on the passenger seat, or get a roofrack?

Or get a proper car. i wouldn't be too keen to park such a poncey (no offence to any poncey car owners) on a beach & filling it with sand.

Much better idea is to blow 25k + on a poncey T5 and fill it with sand and saltwater instead.

At least that way you will stand out from the crowd ;)

And no kite boards won't fit in the boot of a TT cople of kites and wetsuit will do but board will have to be inside on the passenger seat

Mate had one and as James said board had to go on passenger's seat (board was 126...). Only lasted just over a year ( I mean he sold it) but did like the way it felt on the road.
Now imagine You just met nice kite chick that wants a lift on a cold evening, and You got yourself latest Shinn board recently... it's gonna be a tough choice.

Ive seen a smart car at hillhead with all his kit in. Personaly, er thanks James I have a poncy t5 converted surf bus camper I made my self. It is great to change in, make a cup of tea in the winter, chill out on the bed when down for whole day between sessions. I dont think I would get much in the Porsche esp as I ride a big board. Never tried to , plus dont like leaving it there as its a classic 1969 one. Got an old Merc with a huge boot that can get all the kit in

I'm with James on his view of the VW crowd who spend way too much on a glorified kit store on wheels when something much less pimp does the job just as well.
On the TT side, I can tell you exactly what will go into a 2004 TT coupe as in 2008 I was due to travel to the BKSA finals in Brighton from Cumbria when my van failed its MOT 2 days before and when I asked the guy if he would trust it to do the journey he said I would be pushing my luck driving it home. So I ended up with my wife offering to put all the kit in her TT. with the rear seats down I got 3 kites complete, a twin tip, wet suit, harnesses, pumps and enough normal clothing and bits to stay 5 days down there. On the way back we added a short directional board to repair for Colin who used to do the safety. The only downside to having the car instead of the van is you feel homeless before and after sessions on the beach, no-where to change, make a brew or get your head down.

A kite buggy mate calls my creations ( as I have built a few ) Chav vans.. but then the next kite/camping trip he ditched his tent and he came in his builders van with a mattress in the back to sleep on instead :lol: so i called his the pikey van :lol:

I got more than the 3. I am a bit car mad I will not bore you will my other hobbie but to give you a flavour I was welding our newest Classic car we have had for a while today eg no wind. It needed doing. Poked a small hole ended up with me making inner and outer sill edges. I recon I could get a fair bit in this car with the roof down.

It's not luck, it's 25 years of hard graft. All my cars I build my self. Metal work, Welding, Body kits on the T5's, Painting, Upholstry, Custom furniture for the 5T's, Engine rebuilds the only thing I don't touch is Gearboxs. Hence why kites and kite surfing has been a real blessing for me to get away from my workshop...I even bought a car on a bank loan knowing it would be the next best thing to have... even the bank lady thought I was mad.. I was right.. £4k loan.. £120k car now ( ok 12 years have gone by ) but every one wants a Pre A 356 now..

I just need a roof rack and a long board on this LOL..

I had a Speedster before and that was great for runs to the beach but again no real room for kit! there's more but this is about kites and kite forum not cars.. I come here to get away from cars LOL.. now where's the bloody wind!
