Someone once posted a picture of a rack they made for the truck to haul boards to and from the lake,.......

Anyone remember where?

I have seen people construct one out of PVC pipe and a bunch of Tees (1" I think). It looked like a bike rack. Basically a horizontal legs with vertical posts space a few inces appart. If I find a pic, I will post it.

I suppose something like this would work.

One I build for my F-150 a couple years ago. I have added two more legs on the right side to hold one more wakesurf board. So it holds a total of four wakeboards and two wakesurf boards. has worked great and keeps boards from being damaged at ALL. All upright poles are removable to make getting boards easier to get in and out since I have a bed cover on my truck.

The foam is pipe insulation and can be purchased at any home improvement store. Lowe's, Home Depot, Menards etc

It just came to me! This is a great solution. Little spendy though!

Wakeboards and especially wakesurf boards are WAY thicker then a windshield. I would also measure where your bindings are and if they will fit in between or outside poles. Also if you think about it, the boards/bindings take up quite a bit of room and will probably be luck to actually get 4 boards on that rack. I just happen to have two of those windshield racks at my work and that is sort of where the idea came from but wouldnt work for me so ended up building the one you see above. Built it to my needs and what i wanted to carry in it and couldnt be more happy with it. Boards stay in truck most of the time so when we want to head to the lake they are ready to go.
