    Yeah....I always used a board bag- Clean storage in my dorm room and protection in the truck bed.

    If you don't have a bag already....Wrap your stick in a towel and then staple or duct tape it so it stays closed. Put your gear bags around it and you should be all good.

    Do not, DO NOT just throw your board in the back of your truck without something to weigh it down, like gear bags on it or something. It will fly out, it happens all the time up here. But if you dont have a gear bag, yes, wrap it with towels or a blanket.

    I guess some arent so lucky, we have seen a couple boards fly out going down the freeway and we have had one start to lift out on us. That was enough for me :p

    maybe you have you have to have gear under the board to lift it up from the bottom of the bed. that way the wind is a lot strong and the the board has less distance to fly to get out of the bed?

    I throw mine on my roof rack. I could easily throw it in the bed but it just looks cooler with the Thule angled snowboard holders!!:D

    Well looks like Ill be getting a board bag. I just got back from MT high and it was just the wifey and me so it actually fit in the back seat of my DC. In the furture though, Ill have more passengers so the board bag will come in handy when I throw it in the bed. Im assuming the bags have cushion on the ends?

    4x4 OFF-ROAD... that is all I need...
    I usually put my board and boots in a board bag. The board bag is water proof so it's safe in case it rains. Then on the way back home, I throw my boots, swampy clothes, helmet and goggles in the bag... and throw the board in bed. Snowboarding is the reason why I bought a Tacoma, so at the end of the day I can just throw all the crap in the bed and not worry about cleaning up. As for securing it, I use a spiderweb-type bungee I got in Wal-Mart for $15. This pic below was from last April's Mammoth trip with a full bed. We didn't lose anything.
