So how do you guys store your wakeboard when they are not on your feet or in the boat?

I am designing a simple wood rack/shelf idea, but would like to hear about other methods.

I bought some bike racks and they work really well. In two of the racks I've got two boards with bindings, a blank board, a wakesurfer, and a wakeskate.

The racks look like the ones in the link below, except that they screw into the wall.

I keep mine in a bag in the closet, as I don't like ski gear all in my house. I've seen people make shelves out of metal brackets or PVC for their stuff.

One inch dowel rod drilled into 2 x 4s braced in the middle

I'll try and find a better picture later, I'm off to argue with the Tax Man about the value of my house.............

Just another design: this is my rack in the shed by the dock. It is hanging from the roof thrust and carpeted. About 5 feet wide by 5 feet deep (you will need about 68" of clearance as this would be the lenth of a ski.

I agree with KDR...I have the hooks from Home Depot. The boards sit really close to the wall and don't take up too much space this way.

Here is what I have just completed...I bought these racks off eBay (Kragon Action Sports Inc. (http://stores.ebay.com/Kragon-Action-Sports-Inc)) for both my wakeboards and kneeboards. I mounted the racks to a piece of wood I cut out so that I could mount it all to a stud to be secure.

I bought a set of wakeboard racks on ebay. They have a block that mounted to anopther block that you mount to the boat and then you simply slip the two together with a quick pin. I simply screwed the block into a stud in the wall instead of into a boat. They are Skylon. And were cheap. The rack have the option of mounting to a boat or mount to a coller that mounts to your tower. So technically if I wanted I could move them from the wall to the tower by simply pulling out the pin and moving them and reinserting the pin. I have towers racks on my x45 so this was not even considered and I did not get the coller mount for them.

Hopefully these links work

Check out this 3 Place Wake Board Rack.
These racks are good quality hard woods and are nice enough to show off your boards. This is not some cheap plastic from China, this is good quality, made in America, products. If you want to have something nice in your garage that will last a long time then get this. Tough too, they are rated to support two boards per pair of pegs – so really a 3 place rack will store 6 wake boards, or snow boards or skate boards…

Do not store them in the boat.....

Not good....

Keep them room temp if possible....

Keep the rubber on the bindings elastic..........

Kept mine in the hall closet...

One less thing that can be stolen out of the boat......

My set-up was about $800.00

I'm with kdr as I have the same type (screw in the wall). Work perfectly for wakeboards and wakesurf.

I bought some "L" shaped shelf mounts at Lowe's they were like 2.00 or cheaper.Then mounted some rubber cones I found at ace hardware on the end of the L bracket.Works like charm.

Here is ours - I cut the "fingers" from a sheet of 3/4" plywood and the "hangers" are 2" x 4"'s. It holds four wakeboards and two wakeskates. Patent pending - all rights reserved. ;)

Mine is not quite as elaborate as C36's (I have no patent pending), but I did have to go up. With a tiny garage that an X7 arely fits in and way too much STUFF, I decided to hang my boards and skis from the ceiling. I had some extra scap wood and decking laying around so I threw together some racks that have worked really well. I padded the wood with old t-shirts. (And the racks double as tennis ball hangers so my wife can try to park somewhat straight in the winter.) Not the best looking setup, but it works!!

I went the cheap way. Two L brackets from Lowe's that just screw in. That holds my ski and boom. Then added a couple of bungee cords to it to hold the board. Works great for me and got less than $10.00 in it all!!!

Here is my water toy storage set up. Wakeboards are on simple shelf brackets found at Home Depot. I did put a layer of foam weatherstripping on the surface of them to prevent scratches. They are the longest brackets (I think 16").
