This Freestanding Surfboard Rack is one of the best surf racks we have ever seen for storing your shortboard upright. This surfboard display rack is second to none as far as stability, quality, and universality are concerned. We highly recommend this board if you are looking to show off your surfboard's art. The rack is minimalistic in design, so it doesn't cover up much of the board and won't distract from your board's awesome design. The picture to the right even shows surfboards on display in an art gallery-esque way.
How it works: This rack relies on a 3-point contact system to securely hold your surfboard in place. There are two arms that hold onto the board's side rails and a U-shaped cradle at the bottom to catch your board's tail. Each arm is a steel rod with a U-shaped, rubberized end that snuggly grasps around your board's rails (i.e. edges). The magic of this rack is in the flexibility of the arms. The steel arms act as a spring (akin to a leaf spring) that constantly wants to keep pressure on your board. To insert a surfboard into the rack, you simply spread the arms, drop your board in, then let the arms spring back into place. Easy!
Universality is one of the best features of the Freestanding Surfboard rack. This rack will gladly accommodate a wide variety of types and sizes of shortboards. Additionally, the rack's tail cradle can hold square, pin, squash, rounded, and swallow tail designs! Unless you have some completely experimental board design, you can feel confident this rack will hold your board and hold it well.
Howdy! I’m Andrew from StoreYourBoard.com here to talk to you today about our Freestanding Surfboard Rack. You will see the rack right next to me. It comes in a black finish. It’s very popular with our customers for a number of reasons. It’s so simple to use. It holds a variety of surfboards, shapes, and lengths and it’s portable, so you can set this rack up wherever you need it from your garage, to your basement, to your deck, to your living room.
The rack itself comes in a black finish. It’s made of steel, so it’s a very sturdy rack to hold your surfboards. It comes with a three-point contact system to support your board. There’s a bottom piece that when pressure is applied, the two side pieces come together to squeeze your board, holding it in an upright vertical position. Like I mentioned, this is great for a variety of surfboards. I have a couple over here to show you how it works.
This is your standard thruster, 19 inches wide, 2-3/8 inches thick. No problem inserting this board into the rack; it squeezes right in. The two sidepieces come together to hold it upright. The bottom piece holds the tail of your surfboard. Very stable support. No problem holding your board upright. To remove your board, same thing. Simple – pull it right up. Now I got a Joel Tudor surfboard, single fin, much thicker, much wider, over 21 inches. Again no problem with fitting into this rack. Apply the downward pressure. Very simple.
One really great feature about this rack is that you can use it with your fins in your surfboard. There are some freestanding surfboard racks that have center upright pieces that your fins will hit if you try to insert your board or fins; not the case with this surfboard rack. It’s a great rack for that reason. It can hold your everyday board in your garage or it can hold a special retired classic board in your living room to show off and display as a work of art in your house. Once again, this is the freestanding surfboard rack. Check it out today at StoreYourBoard.com and see why so many people like it.
Exactly what I was looking for
Very pleased with the design and function of your product. Noticed that with larger boards (but not longboards) it can be a bit tipsy - longer base foot rails would likely cure that issue.
Used for displaying hand painted surfboards at art shows. Sturdy, ingenious design.
Just what I needed. Looks great and very stable. You won't be disappointed.
Rack arrived in a nice box. Assembly was a breeze, and finish was excellent. Rack supports board gently but securely. I would recommend and definitely purchase again.
Great product. Well made. Only improvement might be making it a bit wide. Mine holds a Bing 9'4" and I really had to pry the bars apart to get it in. Hope it doesn't dimple the board.
I've tried a few other brands of stand free racks and this one is head and shoulders above the rest. Well constructed very sturdy and not too bulky.
Looks great in the house
Is it possible with this stand to have the board stand up at a slight angle?
No, this freestanding board rack won't work to hold the board at an angle -- it needs to hold the board vertically, straight up and down, and you couldn't even get the board to sit in it at an angle. I don't have an alternative that would hold it that way, so I am sorry we can't help you out with this
