Board storage
Hey. New to wakeboarding and the forum. I just built my garage racks from the DIY thread but was wondering how everyone transports their boards from the garage to the lake. Do you put them in the boat or the back of the truck. I don't like how they bounce around and could get scratched or break a fin. I was thinking about building a PVC rack similar to my garage one for the back of the truck. Any tips or suggestions. Thanks.

My giant board bag with vest, handle, helmet, fins, towels are all transported to/from lake whether my boat, to friends' lakes or cable park

I also have a travel day bag for my other board/bindings.

Long tows to the lake boards stay in bags or inside the truck. Some boats V-drive lockers are big enough for boards. However, IF you put them in the bed of your truck put them on edge with the bindings upside down and they won't move. If you lay them flat then they'll slide around

Thanks for the replys.

Looks like I should buy a bag for my board. Is there any other suggestions? Seems like eventually buying a bag for every board could get really expensive.

How long of a travel is it towing the boat? Can always lay them in the boat. I have bags because i typically would sometimes ride my boat or friends boats or fly out of the area and its nice to throw all my gear in the one bag and go. Plus i didnt want to scratch up my suv interior.

Padded bags can run $50-100, non-padded around $40-$75. Should be some sales going on soon due to off season. Try Evo.com as they are having a great sale and have around 15 bags to choose from

Ive got a nice liquid force bag that holds two boards...got it at the end of season last year for like $79. Should be able to find some great deals since season is slowing down and 2012 gear is hitting the stores

One bag should work for a couple boards. Place towels between the decks and you'll be good to go.

We've bought bags for every board, some padded some not, and through ebay and sales have managed to never spend much over $30 Canadian. The deals are out there, you just have to find them.

Looks like a bag it is. Thanks for the tips.

Truckbed Racks
I know this is an old thread but I thought I would share for those who come across it. We manufacture the first truckbed rack that locks boards down with a SIMPLE system and doubles as a wall rack when not in use. All aluminum, powder coated in some sick colors, and light weight.
