I keep my veneer covered in cardboard so it doesn’t get damaged. The trick is to keep it flat till its needed.

Julian is right, keep it flat! its important as well to store veneers, especially for long periods so they are not too dry, and yet under the 12% moisture content, probably perfect would be somewhere between 8 and 10% just to keep the mold and fungus at bay (although with teak, it should be actually naturally resistant) but also important that it does not dry out too much then it will start tearing, but seeing that you live on the coast should not be a problem.
