Hello Grumblers-
I have an unusual item to mount. I need to mount a surfboard. Two pieces (Broken in half). Using a standard moulding with acrylic box.. Any ideas or suggestions greatly appreciated. Conservation is not an issue with this one.
Thanks so much.

Smantecon, Welcome to the Grumble.

In my day we used to kind of paddle like heck and then when you feel the wave surging and catching your board, you kind of push up with your arms as you sort of hop your legs underneath . . . . but then that was when board were boards and n.... oh never mind.....

Mounting..... No FACTS..... I would get the OK from the customer to port some 3/4" holes in the back then epoxy lag nuts into the foam of the board. Then you can mount with some 1/2" bolts through the backing board (I'd use 1/2" baltic birch for a short board, 3/4" for my old 11-4).
Glue the backer to the strainer and your go to go.

I miss the crab sandwiches at the Pacific Cafe....
The art was fun too.

Hi Scott, welcome to the Grumble.
You could use the same kind of nylon tie-down straps that would hold the board to the roof of a car. Maybe even put load racks in the frame.

I'm sure there are plenty of surfboard manufacturers around Dana Point that can help you if you decide to pursue Baer's recommendation.

Whichever method you choose to use for mounting,
you might consider using a UV filtering glazing,
since all plastics, but especially foams, tend
to break down when exposed to UV.

What no surfers? Board wax just use Board wax the stuff they use on the top so they do not slip off build it up on the backing, heat it then lay the board on it an stucko it will be. Knarley ****

Spoken like a true 'Barney' Gumby.

First time the customer shuts up their house in the SoCal summer for a long "endless" weekend and the temp in the house goes over the 120 mark, **** the wax is toast and the board get drilled.

You shaken with fra bro?

Thanks for all the suggestions.
I really liked Wally's suggestion, but I think we're going to go with Baer's.
I will definately use UV glazing.

Thanks again.

UV Glazing for what bra?

The board's gel coat is UV bonded.
