Hi John, we use the wind blockers which are good sun shades and don't kill the light. Try this link http://www.windblockers.net/windblockers
They are generally at all the shows....Derek

We have an Omnistor which we use on the front, threaded into the channel along the wind-out. Fiamma also do one cheaper but lighter (by the look of it) material

Hope this helps you.
