Wax off car seats, and in sunnier places stops boards yellowing as quickly

On the naughty step young man......

Socks came before decent board bags, so just old fashioned I guess and they are a pain to put on a board IMHO.

I tend to put my boards in the car, on the reclined front seat, and a board sock stops wax from covering the headrest rear seats when you slide it in. I've never bought one though; bit of old material or duvet cover stitched into shape does the trick. So much easier than any padded bags...

Well I'd have thought it was obvious - keeping wax off car, provides some protection for board etc.

They are good when you have multiple boards and bags end up making a stack too bulky. Plus lighter than a boardbag. Good for hiking through forest with a board too, protects it from 95% of dings but without weight of a full board bag.

I had one, was a terry cloth (towel material) type deal so you could use it to dry off after. Made the mistake of leaving on going to the beach mid-summer because of all the bugs where I live. Moral of the story: don't. Was in tatters. Another life lesson learned.
