I went quick, cheap, and easy. Got this from Overton's. It suits my garage since it lays flat against the wall. We have 4 wakeboards and 2 sets of combo skis in it. Basically two straps with many adjustable buckles, and two hanger hooks.

This is what I use. Its not the prettiest thing in the world but at the time i bought them (overtons) they were $9 each so I bought 3. In the pic it has some stuff out of it. I store everything you see plus a wakeboard and a surfboard. It holds quite a bit of stuff.

I used bike hooks similar to onewheats but just the single lag screw type hooks. Cheap, quick and easy to install.

With tool boxes, shelving, workbenches, tables, etc. I'm running out of room on the garage walls. I resorted to putting things on the ceiling. Some hooks, PVC and rope and you are in business. Inexpensive. Totally out of the way for the off season.

I was going to make my own but the girl bought me one for my birthday last year. I'm sure it could be made for a lot less than what she paid. But it looks good.

Wow, so many ideas, I like the roof storage ideas. might have to re think where I was going to mount these.

Question for everyone: what are your thoughts on cold weather and bindings???? When I mean cold I mean -30C outside in a non heated but attached garage, so maybe -10C in the actual garage?

I'm more worried about mice eating the rubber plate on the bottom. I left an old pair of skis in the boathouse one year and found the bindings make great mouse houses. They LOVE the rubber piece that is flat against the ski in the binding. Everything comes in the house now (no mice there). Even the tubes get a place in the closet. Not sure what the cold does to the rubber/bindings.

I like the adjustable shelf brackets like mine and Josh S has because my board configuration changes from year to year.

Skis, surf boards, knee boards, wakeboards, wakeskates, etc...........
