    Has anyone found a good method for stowing rods for surf launches? My kayak doesn't allow me to store it inside. I was thinking an 8' pvc pipe with threaded caps to hang off the side might work but i'm looking for a better idea.

    I have seen a cone type thing mounted near the bow/side for the rod tip. And then something similar to a paddle holder for the rod. Figuring I'd be flipping at landing, I purposely bought a kayak with hull access and storage for my rods.

    I ended up doing something very similar. I cut a bottle in half and glued a section of pool noodle inside. Then attached that to the front carry handle. Securing the handle of the rods with the paddle strap/bungee and slipped the rod tips into the bottle at the bow.

    Lol did my first surf launch on my yak, (second launch ever) broke my paddle and one of my rods. Rods were placed in rod holders facing upward. Definitely looming at this for next time.
