Default Wall mounted storage?

I'm redecorating my room, and thought it might be a cool idea to get a wall mount, for my boards during the summer. The window in the room faces North, so there would never be any direct sunlight shining on the boards. Right now I have them standing up on end in their bag, in my closet. By wall mounting them, can I do any kind of damage to them? (I've heard rumors they can lose camber?) If it can, how should I wall mount them?

You need to have them in a pressure sealed room with zero gravity, otherwise they'll lose their camber!.

Damn.

Seriously though, I've read people's posts who believe that it will affect the board.... it doesn't make sense to me that it would, since there's no weight pushing down on it other than gravity, it seems like riding it would be incredibly bad for it if the board lost camber that easily.

I'm just asking, to make sure.

whats up, heres what i did i went out to the hardware store and got 2 four packs of those little round plastic discs that you put under table legs so they dont scratch a wood floor. drilled holes in the center of each got some long sheetrock screws and washers and screwed the discs about a quater inch away from the edge near the lip not in the center so you dont loose the camber. total cost around $7.00 and it holds 2 boards. heres some pics,

This is what we did with ours. I am not sure if it will screw them up but leaning them against the wall seems like it would do more damage plus they would get knocked over all the time. We put them up towards the ceiling of our garage, I am sure you could get some nice brackets or hooks and figure something out.

Honestly all I did actually was pretty similar to what these people did, I got some hook things from home depot I think it was and screwed them to the wall, Seems to work fine for me.

Oh damn, really? I'll be on the lookout when I'm in that area. Probably something like that in St. Mark's too. And it's awesome!
