    I'm finally getting my garage organised some years after buying my house! I'm looking for inspiration for garage ski racking to mount on brick walls. Does anyone have design tips? Can ski flex be damaged if they are stored incorrectly?
    Cheers

    Is the space best used vertically or horizontal?

    Probably vertical as the gaps between the brick pillars (attached pic) may be slightly to short if I hang horizontally

    I built mine by using a flat piece of timber 100cm x 20cm x 25mm thick.
    I cut grooves like this pic.
    Skis and boards are vertical though.
    I lined the grooves with eva foam and trimmed neatly.

    Mine look like this. Skis held using a toe lug shaped piece of plywood.

    Drill a couple of 4mm holes in the lug.
