YES. You can stash a surfboard on the train.
Many years ago my truck was stolen in Atlantic City and I rode the train to Philadelphia with boards.
Got my truck back. (weed and sunglasses gone)
It was my fault for stashing my keys in an obvious place in a town full of desperate people. lesson learned.
Just like you know it's your fault for the situation you find yourself in.
Best of luck!
btw, cali may have ridable waves 360 days a year, but a lot of the waves, especially north of santa barbara, are closed out or crumbly/barely makeable sections most of the time. Very few jettys and groomed sandbars compared to the east coast, so people crowd to the piers because it's the only place with a decent sandbars - **** show. Sometimes I wish for the shape folly gets. Shape is everything, imo.
You can definitely take your board on the train. U stowe it on the racks above the seating. Ive done it multippe times with no problems.
You're born, you die, and in between you make a lot of mistakes.
Again thank u all
