    Surfboard rack on the TW - Any Surfers on here? -

    Anyone on this forum surf?

    I was wondering if anyone has seen a surfboard carrier designed for the TW.

    Any ideas as to how one should/could be fabricated are welcome. I'd prefer to have the board in line (behind it) with the bike.

    As stupid as it may look, function over form always wins. Dual purpose. Would still prefer it to be behind me.

    With this one, maybe you could catch more air on a jump with a headwind.

    Check out "Deus Ex Machina Surf Bike" on Youtube or go to the web site below. Its a pretty bad ass bike with a pretty nice surf rack. Not sure if this is old news or not this is my first post ever, but the TW on youtube is Sick!!

    It would be pretty easy to build a rack that would hold the board over head or even verticle behind you .Mounted to the rear peg mounts I would weld a tube straight back then bend upward with another bend foreword for an overhead holder or just leave it verticle behind you .I might live far from any kind of surfing ,but I do have a real surfboard I use as a bit of a sun shade and will eventually hold the stereo on my 1967 Meyers Manx dune buggy that I hope to be driving this summer .I have a tube bender and could probably whip you up a rack in an hour or two ,unfortunately shipping it would be stupid expensive .The board I have is only about 5 or 6 feet long ,and might weigh 5 pounds ,if yours is close to that ,you might get away with some thin aluminum ,some electrical conduit might also work ,another cheap alternative might be going to a muffler shop and having them build you something with stainless exhaust tubing .

    I'm thinking of using aluminum unistrut and having local boat builders do any welding that may be done.

    @ Texas - Bodyboarder (and occasional long-boarder when it's flatter) here, I've never attached a rack to my TW, but I have ridden with racks a whole bunch out in Indonesia.
    Is there a specific reason you want it behind you? The side-racks you see in most of the photos are comfortable without toooooo much additional width and work really well from experience, and you can buy them made up to attach either by a base-plate or alternatevely to grip the frame?
    Finally picked up a Tdub...

    Streamline aerodynamics. Would like to fit through tight places. I think it would be safer also.
