Rolling up hoses

I have extremely hard time rolling up water hoses without them kinking. Has anyone got suggestions for this. Also how to store these same hoses. Tia

Need to twist (roll) as you roll up. Practice using extension cord

X2 What Donald suggests. I bought a "Homer Bucket" from Home Depot and coil my water hose in the bucket then remove it and bag it (water hose fits great in bags designed to hold side mounted BBQ grills!) Then I coil my 50AMP cord into the Homer Bucket, and put our Progressive EMS unit in the center. Cable & hoses done!

Check these videos and they will explain it. First one talks about the twist and the second calls it the over and under method.
