It would need to be locked for security and weatherproof as it would be outside year-round. Is it sufficient to store it outside in a typical board bag, elevated off the ground a bit, and locked with a board lock to the building? I suspect the board bag would take a beating, but would the board suffer at all? I wouldn't think so, but I've never stored a board outside and haven't seen any posts or articles that talk about doing it outside some sort of shed or enclosure.
Any thoughts? Or do you know of any special products for this purpose?
