Product Description

The Big Air Hydro | Wakeboard Rack is a great rack for your boat if you're looking for a high quality, yet affordable way to keep your wakeboards up and out of the way. Made by Big Air, these racks are 100% Billet Aluminum and are designed to live a life in the sun and salt water. The Billet Aluminum is incredibly sturdy and will prevent the rack from ever rusting. This Big Air Hydro Wakeboard Rack is designed to hold up to two wakeboards. With 1.25 inches between the forks, there is plenty of space to hold kids, womens, mens, and even the new camber style wakeboards. 

One of the best features about this rack is the adjustable attachment method with the clamp. There are four bolts that sit in slotted channels that are used to attach to the rack to the clamp. The slotted channels are a very important feature because they allow you to adjust the angle of the rack relative to the horizon. It is common that the tower leg you are attaching the rack to is not vertical and is tilting to one side or the other. If you didn't have some method of compensating for this tilt, then your boards would be stored at an un-level angle. Luckily, the four bolts and slotted channels provide nearly infinite adjustment and allow you to level your rack. 

Each rack comes with an adjustable clamp that will fit 2", 2.25", and 2.5" tubing sizes for towers. The clamp is the component that will attach your rack to your boat's tower. As an important note, you will need to check your particular tower and ensure that it is one of these sizes in order for this rack to fit properly. 

How do I figure out what my tower tubing size is?
Once you determine the perfect spot for your new wakeboard tower rack, get a piece of string and loop it around the tower. Then, measure how long the string was that went around the tower - this is your circumference. Use the table below and read across to find out what diameter tubing your tower is. Now you should know whether your tower can accept this rack's clamp. If it doesn't, don't worry, we carry a large selection of racks that will fit your needs. We recommend checking out the Wakeboard Rack | Adjustable Angle if you need different clamp size options. 

 

Circumference (inch)    Diameter (inch)    Diameter (inch) Fraction   
3.93 1.25 1 1/4
4.71 1.5 1 1/2
5.11 1.625 1 5/8
5.50 1.75 1 3/4
5.89 1.875 1 7/8
6.28 2 2
7.07 2.25 2 1/4
7.46 2.375 2 3/8
7.85 2.5 2 1/2
9.43 3 3



This Big Air Hydro Wakeboard Rack also comes with the option of a polished aluminum swivel add-on. The swivel add-on is a special mechanical device that sits between your rack and the clamp and allows the rack to swivel around. Why this is such a great feature is that it allows you to load and unload wakeboards from the rack with ease. When the rack is in its normal storage position, it has the wakeboards facing out and away from the boat which means you have to lean out over the water to get your board in and out of the rack. With the swivel, you can swing your boards around to face you on the inside of the boat - a huge convenience! We highly recommend a swivel -see the video below for more information. 

  • 1.25" of space between rack forks
  • Fits 2", 2.25", and 2.5" tower tubing
  • Sold as single (not a set)

Q:
Will the black ones chip easier than the stainless don't want them to look bad in a few years?
A:
After a few years, the black, powder-coated version of the Hydro Wakeboard Rack could be subject to some of its coating chipping, as it is just a powder coating. How much so will vary according to where you are using and conditions its subjected to, etc. Overall it will look good, but as an alternative, the polished aluminum style won't have the same potential as its not coated.
Q:
Does the clamp come with rubber bushings to mount to tower? I find that the rubber bushings keep the tower from getting scratched by rack clamps.
A:
Our Big Air Hydro Wakeboard Tower Racks have inserts for the clamp, but they are mainly there to size the clamp to fit the tower. So if you have a tower tubing that is 2.5" the clamp will fit exactly, and you don't necessarily need the inserts, though you may be able to use part of one to protect the tubing - it depends on the fit though. If your tubing is 2.25" or 2", you would definitely be using the inserts.
