How do you all store your surf boards on the boat? I finally got some nice surf boards and didn't want to see them damaged.

We have Axis wakeboard and surf racks with the bungee. Do you all put your nice surf boards in these? I haven't tried yet. Is the Z5 bimini that way to go?

I saw the Roswell Triton racks that looked pretty nice but pretty expensive and I don't even know if the fit an Axis tower.

Curious what you all do with you surf boards

I always kept my Doomswell and Brigade on my Z5. I keep the Ronix,LF,HL and Victoria in the Racks. Now that I don’t have the Z5 on my Malibu I will use the Bimini straps. If you’re Axis doesn’t have the surf Bimini it would be much cheaper to get one vs. buying the Z5 they don’t give those things away easily.

I purposely ordered my boat without the flip seats so my surfboards will fit under the long seat behind the driver. I can do 3 surf style boards or 2 surf style AND 2 skim style under that one seat. My boards are kept in board socks to protect them. I have a Z5 but don't put my custom boards on it because I live in Texas and the heat and sun will destroy custom boards after some time. I wouldn't put surfboards in racks but that's just me. I see plenty of boards in racks though.

Only the cheaper molded wakeboard style construction boards like the HL broadcast should be put in racks , those bungies alone will mark a good board much less the bouncing across wakes the racks can hurt them , I keep my happy pill in the surf only forks but it’s pretty trashed already but I don’t use the rack bungee , I use a plastic two hook long one from home depot

I did this and got lead to replace on cushion sacs snd it’s like I have a 23 foot boat instead of a 20, not really but the sacs and boards killed the room even for just 2 people in a 20 footer with a big pickle fork bow therefore a smaller cabin

I put mine in nose to the rear with the fins sticking up and the strap behind the fins so the wind can't push the boards out towards the back
