Wetsuit Rack

  • Since I don't have an outside clothesline, or the like, I made a rack out of PVC pipe to hang my wetsuit on while I wash it off and let it dry. About $10 worth of stuff from Homedepot. I made a storage rack for my S2000's hardtop which works pretty well and saved a ton of money over buying Honda's rack.

  • Sweet! I built wall board rack out of PVC a bunch of years ago, it's still in use today. Def way cheaper than commercial racks, and kinda fun to put together.

  • I made a bike rack out of pvc once with bits and pieces I had. Modeled after the ones you’d find at an elementary school. Filled it with sand to withstand the weight of the bikes.

    Funny you should mention that. Being a pushover for gadgets I was going to make one after seeing a YouTube video. The fan he found at Walmart for about $6 now is at least $20 everywhere, but still OK and battery powered. Next project.

  • I picked up a 12v 6"computer fan and a battery pack from Radio shack for pennies before they closed their doors. Still need to solder it all up.

  • only problem is that your booties drip all over your freshly rinsed suit. That's a no-go for me.

  • Yup, I have this - https://www.leisurepro.com/p-uktsahbk/super-accessory-hanger-for-gloves-hoods-and-boots-black?gclid=CjwKCAiAx57RBRBkEiwA8yZdUI6E7KZaJUgFIP_DRFImjbZGqNh4VVi8pJeK6Su04jYhNmKUTqOqqBoCkpMQAvD_BwE&kwid=productads-adid^228662146455-device^c-plaid^345601213849-sku^[email protected]^PLA

    Same concept. It's well made and seems like it'll last forever (I believe its the same exact one). But I don't use the hood drying part for the same reason as above - bootie funk is no joke!

  • I bought the fan hanger. you can prob find it on amazon or ebay. I also use boot warmers for my booties and gloves and that works fantastic.
