You have a hardtop? ESP and some other brands make soft racks. Id recommend one of those or if you have a soft top, drop the soft top and use 2 ATV racket straps and 2 towels and strap it to the rollbars.

I'm up in Cumming. I usually just cruise around parks while my kids are at their sports practices. I've never bombed hills, or anything crazy haha.

I LOVE those wakeboard racks, Tball.

absolutely nothing!

a full time job really puts a damper on it too..

I hate that I haven't been longboarding much since college, but where I live now is not longboard friendly..

Not very cost effective if all you are hauling are some surfboards, but we use it for gear quite a bit.

Tball It's been a while but I have had some free time and have begun making my own rack. Thanks to eBay I found a set of cheap wakeboard racks. All I have to do is mount them to the roll bar and ill be set. Still need to figure out how to attach them.

Probably not permanent. Yes to hold it up out of the way. I throw mine in the back and it gets knocked around into stuff. Besides the wakeboard rack I can't seem to find a good way to do it at a price that is comparable to the price of the wakeboard rack.

With this being said, I'm really starting to consider the wakeboard rack idea. Just don't know of it'll fit.

Still open to different ideas though.
