A strong yet lightweight rack to store kayaks or SUPs, your choice!
1) Outdoor Use - This rack has a multi-stage rust protection finish that allows this rack to be used outdoor. Whether your kayaks and paddleboards are too big and bulky to be stored indoors, or you've got a great waterside spot to set them up, this rack is a great fit for your boards and boats.
2) Freestanding - StoreYourBoard customers always like the convenience of a freestanding rack. With a freestanding rack there is no need to screw or drill into your walls. All you need is a flat level surface to put the rack on and then put your kayaks or SUPs on the rack. And because it's not installed, it's a portable rack, so you can move it from your garage to your dock to your car for loading and back.
3) Lightweight & Strong - A perfect combination of lightweight (19lbs assembled) and strength make this kayak rack easy to move around with one person but give the strength to support large kayaks and paddleboards.
4) Versatility. You can store more than just kayaks and SUPs on this rack. It's also great for canoes, surfboards and more. If you're into watersports, one of these racks will get all your gear stored and ready for use. This rack also works well in a retail store as display.
The way this freestanding rack is setup also enables you to use the top rack as a place to hold your boat or board while you do maintenance and repair. The arms of this rack are wrapped in high density foam to protect the hulls of your kayaks and the rails of your paddleboard from any scrapes or scratches while in the rack.
How’s it going? I’m Andrew from StoreYourBoard.com, and I’m here today to talk to you about our Freestanding Water Rack. We’ve got kayak and a SUP in here. It’s great for a variety of different water sports gear. So as you can see, the rack is pretty compact. It will fit in a nice smaller spot, in your garage, maybe your basement, out on your deck. On the bottom level, we’ve got kayak angled slightly a bit to fit into that space, which I’ll show you in a minute. On the top, we’ve got a SUP lying horizontally.Take that in for a minute to see how that works, and now I’m going to take this paddleboard off the top rung. So you can see on this top level, you got to see more of the rack. This space right here is about 28 inches wide. So there’s two angled pieces that depending on the width of your board and we have around it rounding towards the tail in between these two rack pieces. They’re also covered in foam to help you protect against any distortions in your board.
In between the lengths of the rack, there’s 48 inches, so center up your board. It shouldn’t really be a problem to support longer boards or kayaks, and I’m going to show you how this bottom rung works. This top level can hold a kayak, too, very easily. You can set it so that the kayak rests along the front rack, then you can set it so you can push it back, so it sets back against that angled rack piece.
On the bottom level, it’s a little bit smaller because it doesn’t extend to the back, so this is about 24 inches. Once again, we’ve got this angled front piece that allows you to store little bit wider kayaks on an angle at the bottom. This kayak we have here is 10 feet long. It’s about 30 inches wide. It fit very comfortably on that bottom level.
Now I’m just going to give you one more view of the entire rack. And so, this is it. If you’re not using it, it fits in a pretty compact area. That’s one of the reasons it’s a great storage rack for your paddleboards and your kayaks. Check it out on StoreYourBoard.com.
Easy to assemble, light weight, holds 2 kayaks. Works as advertised.
I had to go online to find the correct instructions for setup posted by a previous customer. Once I did the setup was easy and it holds boards well. StoreYourBoard needs to post the correct setup instructions on the website.
I have two ocean kayaks that Each seat two people, will this rack be big enough?
For this kayak rack, you can have a boat up to 18 feet long on the bottom, but on the top level, you ideally are not having a boat much over 12 feet long -- so that would be one thing to look at for your ocean tandems, is their length. If they are both over 12 feet I probably wouldn't recommend it (if they are, say, both 14 feet, that could work, but you just wouldn't want to go much longer on the top level).
Then look at their weight -- it can hold up to about 160 lbs total, and again, you want to distribute that with the heavier item on the bottom, or at least just distributed evenly between the two levels. So if they are both very heavy, and weigh more than that combined, it would not be a good fit.
Those would be the main things to look at. I would also suggest taking a look at this alternative, which can work well for long boats, as another option: https://www.storeyourboard.com/heavy-duty-free-standing-kayak-storage-rack.
