Just as surfers have multiple boards they can use for different wave conditions or different tricks they want to try, so too do wakesurfers. This calls for a rack that can accommodate all of you or your buddies’ wakesurf boards. Luckily, Skylon makes this Double Up Wakesurf Rack that will hold two wakesurf boards securely and in style. Surfing in the ocean is awesome, don’t get us wrong, but there is something special about wakesurfing and its endless, perfectly formed wave. So if you can’t imagine having to use a rope behind the boat, chances are you need to get this rack!
About Skylon Racks: If you are looking for the highest quality wakeboard, wakesurf, or waterski racks for your boat’s tower, then Skylon is what you want. Skylon is an industry leader – just take one look at their products and you’ll understand why. Made from aircraft grade T-6061 billet aluminum, each rack is a work of art that is cut and polished in state-of-the-art computer controlled machines. Skylon racks are the only racks in the industry that have thick EPDM molded rubber inserts and an industry leading 1/4” marine grade bungee which work together to hold both boards in nice and secure. Made in the USA, these racks will outlast your boat. Skylon racks are the sleek and sexy storage solution you need to free up more room in your boat.
IMPORTANT: This rack is sold as a single piece (not a set), and the clamp that attaches the rack to your tower is sold separately. These clamps are listed under the “options” drop down menu above. To clarify, unless you already have the proper Skylon-specific clamp, then you WILL NEED to select one of the clamp options above to have a fully working rack system. Please read below to understand more about the clamping options.
If you are looking to purchase two Wakeboard/Wakesurf Combo Racks, then you will need to place two line items in the shopping cart. For instance, if you want to order 2 racks with swivels, then you add the first rack with starboard swivel to your cart, then you add the second rack with port swivel. If you want 2 racks with clamp options, then you should select your clamp size and change the quantity to 2.
Clamps and Swivels: Clamps and swivels accomplish the same task – they bind your rack to your boat’s tower. As mentioned above, they are a necessary part of a rack system. Clamps simply lock onto the metal tubing of your boat’s tower to secure the rack in place. Swivels are just like clamps, but they have the added functionality of …well, swiveling. In their normal storage position, clamps have the rack and your boards pointing out away from your boat. In order to remove or place boards into your rack, you have to reach to the outside of your boat. The swivel allows you to easily spin the rack around to face the inside of the boat. This makes it much easier to switch out your boards. Both clamps and swivels are listed according to the size of tubing your boat’s tower has. For instance, if the outer diameter of your boat tower’s tubing is 2” and you want a port-side swivel, then you would select the “Small Port Swivel (AC132SM)(+$45.00)” option. Size small fits 1 7/8 inch to 2 inch Tube. Size large fits 2 1/4 inch to 2 3/8 inch Tube.
Clamp Sizing : Once you determine the perfect spot for your new wakeboard 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. The diameter is the size clamp you need. Select this size from the drop down menu above.
|Circumference (inch)||Diameter (inch) Decimal||Diameter (inch) Fraction||Size Needed|
Swivel Direction : The swivel option requires you to pick which side of your boat you will be mounting it. The directionality of the swivel ensures that it will swing around in the proper way. Please select whether you will be using your swivel on the port or starboard side. Below is an image that refreshes your nautical knowledge.
The double surfboard rack is a great product and is exactly what I was looking for. The only advice I would give to potential buyers is that the rack requires some assembly (although reduces shipping size) and has a brushed metal finish (versus a polished metal finish as found on the original rack that came with the boat). I prefer the brushed finish although at some point I would want to upgrade the other side so they are matching (minor OCD detail).
The double surf rack is well made and beautifully crafted. We also bought the swivel and it works great for our needs. Thanks!
Solid & great looking wakesurf/board rack. Easy to install & adjust, swivels nicely out of the way.
