Tie it down.
You don't drive a beater bug, hippy van, or lowrider caddy; you're a truck guy who happens to be a surf guy too. Strap the Creatures of Leisure Tailgate Pad With Tie Down, and the longy and shorty will still be there when you hit your choice spot. Pads cushion your precious cargo and added neoprene buckle covers help prevent digs. Those Creatures of Leisure designers know you like to drop the gate and hang too, so don't throw the reusable carry bag away ... just toss it under the seat until it's time to roll the Tailgate Pad up.
