If you don't mind the flapping noise for the whole trip.... But no, not needed really.

try a Packasport, I have one and I can fit 5 boards in it (no ski's), the other thing I like about them, as far as thieves go, out of sight, out of mind.

New they're spendy $1000, but I see them on Craigslist during the winter from $200-$400 for the system 90 (which is the ones you want). Some look like the gel-coat is faded, but all it takes is a piece of scotchbrite, masking tape and $6 rattlecan of whatever color you want.

just did a quick CL check, not sure what shipping would cost but the Seattle/ Portland area has 5-6 system 90 available from $350-700

Frosty is a tool and you should be one too

from: Protect Your Board - The low-down on snowboard bags | Snowboarding Tips Articles | FrostyRider.com Snowboarding

NOTE: Here is a little tid bit for ya. If you are putting your board up on a roof rack (exposed kind not the box carrier kind) you better darn well put a bag over it! (the cheaper ones have less padding and are perfect for this). "But Frosty," you might ask, "I saw the pro snowboarders in on that movie and they had their boards up on the roof rack on their SUV and that's the way we should all do it, right?" ... Wrong! Pros, as cool and talented as they are, get paid to be posers. Sad but true. The movie sponsors want you to see their shiny new products as the Land cruiser zooms past the camera in the shoot. The truth of the matter is that having your board up on the Thule or Yakima rack exposed is hell for it ... ABSOLUTE HELL! I cant think of anything worse for your base than road grime and mag chloride. Your base will lose glide, bolts rust, edges separate from p-tex and top sheet will delam way faster unless you cover your ride on the way to the mountain. Get a cheaper bag. Keep it in the garage for when you are ready to cruise to the mountain. Put your board (with bindings on it) in the bag and fasten that to the roof rack. Arrange it so the straps to not slack so they don't slap the roof of the car when at speed. (small bungee cords may be useful). Once at the mountain parking lot, take the bag off the roof and pull out your shiny board and bindings and take the bag and shake all the crap off it and put it in the trunk or somewhere. Then look to the sky and give Frosty props, then go rule the slopes Smile
