Surf’s up! We’ve hit the dog days of summer and when people need to beat the heat, plan a family outing or start that long awaited vacation they head to the shore. We’ve hit the height of beach weather. But for some, the beach is a lot more than a fun day of sun, sand and water. For some, the beach is their business. It’s a seasonal business that requires you to be organized and to maximize profits in a short period of time, and you have to stay organized.
Whether you run a kiosk near the shore, a surf shop, a seasonal hotel or bed and breakfast, the beach may be vital to your bottom line and storing beach equipment properly can make your business thrive. That’s where A.B. Richards comes in. We can make certain the beach equipment you store is safe and secure.

Caring for Beach, Surfing and Scuba Gear
When you’re taking care of beach gear of any type, particularly if you rent them but even if you sell them, close to the water, you need to keep all of your items clean and dry before you put them into storage. Make sure that all sand is removed from the items. If you’re handling wet swimsuits or towels, dry them. Hang things on a drying rack before putting them away. Try to categorize the supplies you use. Keep towels in one part of your storage container and beach toys in another part. Put together sections for surfing gear and scuba gear for easier access.
If you’re packing away surf gear for the winter, you have to be very certain everything is clean. Surfer Magazine says that you should always do a thorough freshwater rinse of wetsuits each and every time they’re used. Turn the wetsuit inside out until it’s dry. Also use wet suit shampoo to get rid of salt. When caring for surfboards it’s always a good idea to keep them in a bag and to clean all boards after they’ve been ridden. If there’s wax on the board, it should be removed periodically, usually about once a month.
Scuba gear needs to be cleaned after every use as well, according to the Adventure Junkies website. Scuba gear can be sensitive equipment so handle it with care. And dry it as best you can to avoid mold.
