DIY Surfboard Rack

Hey guys!  I hope 2013 is treating you real good so far!
Today I'm going to share my super easy and inexpensive DIY Surfboard Rack. I looked at racks online but most retail for about $80, which seems steep considering how simple their design is (and how cheap I am).  SO I ventured to the wood shop on base and set about making my own and although I hate to brag...this thing is freaking awesome!!  Fifteen minutes, under ten bucks...you can't go wrong.

You could easily alter the design to store snowboards or skateboards and since this option is so simple there are countless ways to customize it.
-Paint it.
-Stain it.
-Use an old skate/snowboard as your backing. A surfboard would be trickier but I'm sure it's possible!
-Yarn bomb the dowels.
-If you plan on putting the rack outiside you could add hooks to hang wet gear up.
-To make a horizontal rack so the boards are completely off the floor, simply make another rack and hang them vertically.

If you DO make something with this DIY, feel free to share it on my Facebook page !
