This is a simple storage sling for your surfboards, boogieboards, etc. Store your board off the ground and out of the way with only some rope and a wall.
Step 1: Materials and Skills
As far as skills go, knowing how to tie a couple knots might help. If you're interested in making this, there's no need to know how to surf.
Step 2: Knot That Way
I looped a length of rope around the two posts and tied it off. This loop forms a double backbone for the hammock.
The hammock needs to be pulled tight to support the weight of the board. Use a trucker's hitch or similar knot so that the backbone can be cinched really tight.
Step 3: Anybody Order Ribs?
The depth of these ribs should be around half the width of the board. Less than half won't be enough to hold the board in. It'll pitch forward and fall out.
They're tied to the backbone with a couple half-hitches. I can slide these ribs along the backbone to find the best spot for them.
If you've made the ribs too deep, you can stagger the knots to take up some slack. Kind of like below.
Step 4: Load It Up
The cheap cord I used stretched a bit, but it's still tight enough to hold everything in.
Now I just need to make myself a hammock.
