Product Description

Just tell us what you want to store and our system will build and price your ideal rack instantly! That's right, no need to suffer the hassle of figuring out a custom rack.  You can build your perfect kayak and paddleboard rack right here in a matter of seconds. The chart in the above image rotary will even tell you what your rack will look like.  And have no fear in building something that "won't work"; the system will only allow you to build racks that don't exceed size or weight capacities.

Begin by selecting SUP arm style. There are two options: "Display Arms" or "Horizontal Arms". The Display Arms hold your board at an angle to "display" your boards. They're the clear choice for retail environments, but also look great at home.  The more affordable horizontal arms hold your boards parallel to the floor. Both styles support 100 lbs. per pair!

Next tell us the number of SUPs and kayaks you'll be storing. Easy as that, though it's worth mentioning that 6 watercraft is the maximum number this rack will store.  Kayak arms are "J-style", which allow kayaks to rest at a slight angle.  These arms are capable of supporting 120 lbs. per pair.

View the above chart (one of the images) to determine how your rack will be built (Hint: Click on image to enable magnifier for viewing).

  • 4+ combinations are Double Sided Racks
  • 1-3 watercraft combinations are Single Sided Racks
  • Foam "kayak blocks" are substituted for kayak arms wherever the selected combinations require 1-2 kayaks rest on the bottom rails

Add wheels if desired. Wheels are strongly recommended for any racks that will be moved occasionally. Fully loaded with SUPs and kayaks these racks are very heavy and will require unloading prior to movement if wheels are not installed. Four heavy duty caster wheels (550 lb. capacity) are included with selection. They are multi-directional and have integrated brakes that eliminate rack movement when engaged.

Additional arms: If arms are needed at a later date they can be purchased here: Add-on Arms for Sup, Kayak & Surf Storage.

Q:
For the free standing SUP/Kayak rack - can it store 2 SUP's and 2 kayaks on one side? Looks in the photos like it can. But, if I want 3 SUP's and 2 kayaks I have to go 2 sided?
A:
For this board & boat stand, once you get to a combination of over 3 boards/boats, it does need to become a two-sided storage rack. You could order a singled-sided stand with two sets of SUP arms and 1 set of kayak arms, and you *may* be able to fit a 2nd kayak on the base level, but it won't have the foam padding that is included with the double-sided rack to cushion that base level... and it may not fit your combination of boats & SUPs well if its single-sided, so these stands automatically become double- sided once you are at 4 craft you are storing. If you did try to order it single-sided, with 1 set of kayak arms & 2 sets of SUP arms, you would want to also make certain your boards/boats are not over 250 lbs combined - if so, you definitely need to go the double-sided route.
Q:
Hi, I want to put this on my grass which has a decline. Is the height adjustable accommodate that or is this just for flat surfaces?
A:
These build-your-own kayak/SUP stands need to be set up on a flat, dry surface so wouldn't be recommended on your grassy slope. An additional note is that it would not be recommended to use these outdoors if you are in a saltwater area, as they are not stainless steel or other marine grade material, so if in a saltwater area could rust with outdoor use.
Q:
My dock is in full sun, no shade at all. My son says boards can not be in the sun. I am looking at your two sided rack on wheels and wondering if you sell covers or have suggestions. Thank you
A:
Yes, it really is best to keep boards out of long exposure to full, direct sunlight. Some people opt to use board socks, bags or covers for their boards when storing outside or in a place that has exposure to the elements and sun. We don't sell a drape or cover that would go over an entire rack for 6 boards, though, our board bags, socks and covers are normally for individual boards. You may be able to find some tarping somewhere that could work over the rack system, and some tarps may have some UV protection, if you don't want individual bags/covers - but individual bags/covers would be multi-purpose and could be used for travel, etc. Last note - this rack system can be used outdoors in freshwater areas, but I would not recommend its use outdoors if you are in a saltwater area, as it would be subject to corrosion in a saltwater area.
Q:
The height is listed at 83 inches, but the appeal of your rack is that it can be customized. I'd only want to store two kayaks, so would not want the extra height and weight.
A:
This kayak/SUP stand can be customized for what you will be storing on it, and how many boards/boats -- but the actual height will not change. The base frame is that tall (83", so almost 7 feet tall). If you are only using it for a couple of boats, you would have a fair amount of room on the rack for larger boats so that would work for some people. Since you don't need or want the extra height, you might want to consider this two kayak stand that is 35" tall (a little under 3 feet tall). Alternately, there is this two kayak stand that is 48" tall (4 feet).
Q:
Will this rack rust over time? I'm concerned because we are right on the water.
A:
This freestanding rack system is not made out of stainless steel or other marine grade materials, so we would definitely *not* recommend it for use if you are on or near a saltwater body of water. However, the frame is powder-coated, so that will give it some protection from rust/corrosion when used outdoors in freshwater areas. How long it will last used continually outdoors in a freshwater area is going to vary by what weather/climate it is subjected to; we do have some other outdoor-use options if you want to compare, seen here, and they are sorted by freshwater & saltwater uses at that link.
Q:
What is the weight capacity? I am considering this for our neighborhood lake. Could we double up SUPs on each straight arm and actually hold up to 12 boards? I know if the space is adequate people will double up because we have more boards and kayaks than space.
A:
Each level of this build-your-own system can support up to 100 lbs, with a total of 500 lbs it can support on the system. Note - it is not a freestanding rack, you will need to mount it to a dock, pier or such surface. You could stack SUP boards on the flat arm levels, as long as you keep it under the maximum weight limit. How many you can get on it will vary and we can't guarantee how many it can hold over the stated amount on the listing. Obviously, as you say, people will stack boards because there is more gear than space - so they may not be aware of how much weight they are putting on the rack. That would be a possible concern. So you may want to suggest a limit to how many boards are put on each level, or something like that - as we cannot guarantee what could happen if you start putting many boards on it, other than going by weight specifications. I hope that makes sense, and gives you an idea whether it is the right option for your needs.
