## A Box for a longboard?

### A Box for a longboard?

I have a dilemma:

I have noplace indoors to store my longboard. It's an 11 footer, and I have
outdoor parking available, but I'd really like to have some protection from
the elements if I'm going to be storing it outside. Constructing a wooden
box on my own looks to be a real bear ("Do you have any plywood other than
4'x8'?" "Good luck."). I was looking for something prefab in that size. Does
anyone have any good ideas? (Of course, if someone is willing to build this
monster *for* me, I'm willing to listen to offers...) The board is (to the
inch) 11'x2.5'x1', making probable dimensions of an object to house it at
least 11.5'x3'x1.5' (maybe a little skimpage on padding -- it's a
polyethelene board, after all).

I'll collect replies and post a summary here.

Thanks!

If you're just worried about environmental exposure then just make a
large bag (ripstop nylon) to keep it in, light colours, it would
only take a few minutes and a few \$\$ on a sewing machine.
