Hi guys it’s Colin, welcome to the mega van blog and happy new year! I wish every one the best for 2013.

This xmas and the next few months I have been doing something real different for me, instead of cruising around the world finding wind and searching for waves I’m staying in the UK to try my skills in building a mega van. Ever since I travelled around Perth in 2000 and built my first van with a mate of mine Luke out of stuff from  B&Q, I always wanted to build a nice van, so here is the place to watch my mission I will keep this blog up dated as much as possible.
The Misssion is to build a mega van to tour around Europe with Marco as a WindSurfCoaching tour stopping in a few spots to will get to Vass spreading the windsurf coaching love.
I’m starting this blog because anyone who knows me knows I haven’t SHUT up about the van, so this is for all my mates to see how the beast gets put together
After doing my research I have decided to build the van myself with my very talanted mates, cheers Matt, Stu, Russ,and all the rest that will help on my travels; I think doing it this way I will build the van to my spec, I know it will be done to every little detail and not bodged!
The van……
I got a hell deal on the van; I have been searching online since I left Vass in September. After this  Marco and I spent five weeks touring around the UK in the Boardwise van, we decided to get a windsurf coaching van and do it in style next year and stop sleeping on everyone sofas (thanks for all theses guys too!).
As you can see the van looks knackered it was a charity van so one owner, low millage and it’s only 2009. But  the problem is, it’s just had a few rookies who just past their driving test, driving about Surrey (south London) collecting clothes, that is kind of a bonus as I know it hasn’t had lots of heaver weight in it!!! Not like a builders van full of bricks!
Even though the out side looks knackered the engine and the rest of the van has really just been run in, 87000 miles for a sprinter is not very much these Vass boys go for ever; I hope hahahha!
