Added some surf pockets and they work awesome. So much easier than using the surf racks and should be a little easier on the boards.
First I laid out the boards and outlined with chalk
My DAKINE bag was already the perfect shape. Figured I'd just use it as a pattern
I bought some mesh from the local upholstery shop, it was $6.95/yd. Also got some sunbrella seconds for $12.95/yd and nylon edging
I ended up using a layer of sunbrella between the Bimini and a layer of mesh. I doubt the mesh will hold up as well as the sunbrella, but I had read that I might have problem with boards warping due to heat if I only used sunbrella. the extra layer of sunbrella under the boards would also help mitigate any issues I'd have with wear and tear of the factory bimini
the first pocket sewn on
The starboard side had a built in pocket that needed to be relocated to remain functional.
Both sides done. I made one of the elastic bungee retainers a bit longer to accommodate the longer fin position on the inland surfboard
The shorter bungee worked just as well with the longer board if you only capture one fin.
