Gear Review: Big Plastic Bucket
Singularly the best and most invaluable piece of surfing equipment I own: The Big Plastic Bucket.
I think I'm just about ready to post reviews and I thought I'd get the ball rolling with this. Unfortunately I'm not even sure what brand it is. Or if it even has a brand? I haven't used a blue one, or a yellow one, or even a green one so I can't make comparison. One wonderful thing that I do know - to paraphrase Andy Warhol - is that not even Kelly Slater can get a better one than me.
It doesn't let water out. I can fit my wetsuit, boots, leash, towel... er... wet dog... er... er... you get the picture - just loads of stuff - into it. It hasn't broken yet. The design is good in that it is the right shape to hold things and then, as a free upgrade, they put handles on it! Even the basic model has handles. Actually, I'm not even sure if this is top of the range or a budget model? I can't even remember where I bought it. How am I doing? Does this sound like a well thought out and thorough review from a seasoned surfer?
If you haven't got one, and you've got wet stuff... I'd get one.
Next week I may move on and dare to review the humble towel.
