I would just get a little creative with some 2x4's, generic clamps and possibly some drawer liner.

This one looks pretty good b/c it locks the board down: Amazon.com: Tools4Boards BoardLoc Snowboard Vise: Sports & Outdoors

I like how this one has 3 angle options for edging: Jons Ski Tuning - Starfix Snowboard Vice Set
