I'd like something a little more sturdy though cuz it'll only be a matter of time till someone hangs a 40# bag of gear on one. Not to mention it's always blowing 20+ mph when I'm out.
I'm thinking of building something with ridges also to hold the hangers/carabiners.
That placement on the rear is superp though, love it.
I agree that the wetsuit drying rack is one of the more clever, and practical projects I've seen. However, that is not surprising considering it came from jwintersteller (also love the Surfrider sticker). Unfortunately it won't work for us since I don't want to have to pop the top everytime time I'm done surfing. If you have a ladder, you could probably utilize that in some way. Currently we just hang our suits from the rear ladder. It is a bit awkward but it works and there is only two of us.
