Ok Sean...I'm done with this mess!
We returned from Ohio not too long ago and will be traveling to MN soon, then back to Ohio for the NWL Nationals. James is back to riding his single layer of 3.7 oz glass Poly U board and those things just don't withstand anything.
So I go through this process: I stack the boards, layering 1" foam in between - James contest board in the middle of Judy's and mine. THEN I wrap the top and bottom with bubble wrap.
THEN I wrap the rails/sides with bubble wrap.
THEN I stuff the whole mess into the Santa Monica hardcase that you can see in the background.
Make me a custom bag that has some extra quilting or padding or something that I can just slide the 3 boards into separate compartments and then velcro it shut and effortlessly slide that whole nice neat package into the hardcase.
I am going BROKE buying bubble wrap and tape!
