How about some med sized bungee cords to secure the board to your rack. You can get small-med sizes very cheap almost anywhere.

Alot of rucksacks are built to carry skate boards on the back. I use my rucksack to carry wheel set's faily often.

Get rid of the skateboard, stick with the bike.

I put mine upside down and perpendicular to the bike on the rear rack with two bungee cords holding it down. I cross the bungees as they go over the deck to keep it from rotating. It seems to work quite well, but the wheels rattle quite a bit over rough pavement.

Sew custom velcro straps onto your bike rack

Drill 2 holes on each side of the deck to put bungee hooks into

Pull quick-release setup off of a cheap huffy mtn bike, jb weld quick release to bottom middle of skateboard, Remove bike seat and discard, flip seatpost over and affix new skateboard seat to bike and ride.

I got a strap for a laptop bag, wrapped it around a truck, and slung the board over my back like a bag. Works well!

I was only being serious about sewing custom velcro straps onto your bike rack, or FOR your bike rack rather, as seeing as it's velcro you could make it easily removable.

Settle down there fella. Are you hostile to innovation?

It would be kind of like this, only the board would be up where the seat is:

I think it's a cool idea.

Why not just get a backpack that will carry a skateboard? There are a million different companies that make them. Check out any skateshop. Dakine makes nice stuff and they all have lifetime warranties.
