Finding the right shed for your surfboard
Size matters when it comes buying the right shed for your surfboard. Living in a city with a small yard, my two main requirements are height and security (from my kids). My shortboards are both over 6 foot and mini mal is adds another 2 foot to the plan. The space is too narrow rack them horizontally so a tall shed is the only option.
Surf shed for your stick
If you know your sheds, the pent tool shed is tall with a flat roof rather than having a pointy steeple where the boards end up in the middle. The problem is finding one with enough height. I finally found one big enough for a surfboard, a 10×3 with no windows for stray footballs, and secure enough to lock the kids out. Comes with a free erection service (see image below).
