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.

Returning this item: Please be aware that this is a Special Oversized Item and is subject to restocking fees up to 20%. For more information visit our Return Policy Page.

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.
 
Q:
How does this stand work for 2 stand up paddle boards & 2 kayaks -- what will the set-up look like once assembled?
 
A:
For this rack, if you order it for 2 SUPs and 2 Kayaks, it would be set up as double-sided rack, and would include:

*double-sided frame;
*2 sets of arms for the SUPs; and
*2 sets of arms for the kayaks.
 
Additionally, you have the choice to order flat/horizontal arms for the SUPs, or angled arms to hold the SUPs at an angle.

Alternately, if you really wanted to try to make this stand work as a single-sided rack, for space, if you are willing to stack both SUPs on one set of horizontal arms, you could order it for 2 kayaks & one SUP/horizontal-flat arms, instead.
 
In that configuration, you receive:

* a single-sided frame that has foam pads on the rack's base, to hold one of the kayaks;
* 1 set of Kayak arms for the second kayak; and
* 1 set of the horizontal-flat SUP arms - to use to stack both your SUPs together on one arm-set.

If you are okay stacking the SUPs together on one set of flat arms, and the 2 SUPs and 2 boats are no more than a total of 250 lbs total, the max weight for the one-sided rack, that is a possibility, if space is at a premium.
 
Q:
Does this rack come with all the pads?
 
A:
The arms for this SUP/Kayak rack (both types of available arms) are padded, and the padding is included. For some configurations you can choose on this rack, it will also include foam blocks for a kayak to rest on the bottom level(s) of the stand.
 
Q:
If I were to purchase a rack for 6 SUPs, what would the set up look like? I would like to avoid having to stack boards. Is there any way to get a rack made for 10 SUPs? Thanks!
 
A:
For 6 SUPS, this rack system will be double-sided. I don't have a good photo of it in use for 6 SUPs, but basically 3 sets of arms would go on each side, so you would not be stacking any of the boards. You would have the choice of arm style for the SUPs during check-out - you could choose either the angled SUP arms or the Straight SUP arms. That really is personal preference, it would still be double-sided, though with angled arms you save a little space since the boards aren't lying flat. The rack should not hold more than 500 lbs total, with the weight ideally distributed over the levels, so it usually is not recommended to add more arms. We do haveadditional arms that can be bought separately, but I can't guarantee you would safely get more than 6 boards on the rack, so normally wouldn't recommend it.
 
Q:
Is this stand adjustable?
 
A:
This customizable SUP/Kayak Rack is adjustable in one way. It has different positions that you can place the types of arms you choose for it, to adjust how much room is between levels, etc. But the height and width of the stand is not adjustable, those are fixed, no matter how many arms you choose to use with the rack system. And if you order the system to hold 4 or more SUPs/Kayaks, then it automatically will become a double-sided rack system, that is also fixed at the same height and width of the single-sided version, but it is deeper due to having the additional side.
 
Q:
I want to put it on my boat trailer(it is an older one) so that it can be used storage and for hauling my kayaks. Can I use your system for this?
 
A:
This customizable Kayak/SUP rack is a freestanding system that really would not be recommended for using in conjunction with a transportation trailer, as it was not built for that use. Even if you were able to secure the stand to the boat trailer, it would not necessarily hold the kayaks in place in transport safely, without a lot of additional strapping into place, etc. All that being said, it is a great storage option for kayaks & SUPs, it just isn't built for transporting them in a vehicle.
 
Q:
How easy/difficult is it to secure kayaks to the frames to prevent theft?
 
A:
We carry a couple of options of locking systems that could be used in conjunction with this Kayak/SUP storage rack, and are all fairly straightforward to use. They can secure the boats to the rack or to a stationary object near the rack/stand. These locking straps would be one option: https://www.storeyourboard.com/kayak-lock-straps-thule/. They are sold as a pair of two (a set) in lengths of 10 or 13 feet long, and could be used to secure the boats to the stand and/or a stationary object nearby. Additionally, here: https://www.storeyourboard.com/kayak-locks-and-safety/, we have a couple of cable systems that could also work.
 
Q:
Would your rack be able to accommodate an Old Town canoe on the bottom rack?
 
A:
For this multi-level rack, some canoes can work on the bottom level, but it is really hard to guarantee it will work.  Old Town's tend to be pretty big, so that is part of the problem.  Basically, one factor will be the length - you will have a lot of canoe hanging over both ends of the rack system, as the stand has a fixed width, of 48", so it is 4 feet across.  If you have a 13 foot canoe, for example, then you would have almost 5 feet of canoe that is extending past the stand on each side.  It should be fine to support that length, but that is something to think about.  Trickier still can be the width and shape of a canoe.  The base level arms will be about 27" deep; which would not be enough to really support a very wide boat flat you would need to tilt it on its side -- so then if it is is wide, you would be limited in how many other sets of arms you could use on the rack on that side; the rack has a fixed height of 83" (a little less than 7 feet tall), so it mainly is a factor of a boat that is over 35" wide at its beam will be taking up a fair amount of real estate on the stand.  So it can work sometimes, depending on your gear.  You also want to make sure the canoe is under 100 lbs, as that is the max each level can support.

Very durable, holds boats really well and moves around easily on wheels. A little bit of work to put together, but well worth it.

Very flexible storage. Easily accommodates all the equipment advertised. If using a garage, wheels are a big plus. Loaded rack moves around easily.

Only gripe is I was missing one bag of bolts when kit received. Fortunately they are a standard size that can be readily found in local hardware store.

Very sturdy, holds everything.

This rack so far is holding 2 SUPs, 2 Yaks, a surfboard and we have our life vests hanging off of it and we still have room to add more. We added the wheels to it and I am glad we did, we roll the rack from our back shed to the driveway and it makes loading and unloading so much easier.

Great storage option

The SUP & Kayak Rack is sturdy and versatile. It can be configured in a variety of ways; I'll be using mine to store 2 kayaks & 2 SUPs in my garage. I added the optional casters to the bottom so that it can easily be moved around. It was very easy to assemble. Great product!
