The Naked SUP is the ultimate rack for your paddleboard. It is both functional and aesthetically pleasing, with a minimalist approach, disappearing into the background and letting your SUP take the spotlight. Display and show off your SUP, not the rack! If you're looking for a lightweight, affordable, and non-intrusive way to show off your favorite paddleboard then the Naked SUP is an excellent option.
The Naked SUP looks minimalistic but the construction is rock solid to support your SUP. The Naked SUP rack arms are made from a single piece of aluminum that have been custom cut and bent. Each rack arm has two pre-drilled holes that allow you to mount two screws in a single stud. The combination of all-aluminum construction with the 2-screw mounting pattern makes the Naked SUP incredibly sturdy for its size and appropriate for a majority of SUPs on the market. The rack arms have been "pre-bent" slightly above horizontal so when a heavy SUP is loaded the arms do not sink below parallel with the floor, a very secure design. Lining the inside of each rack arm is a thick piece of felt padding. This provides a soft place to rest your paddleboard and prevents any long term pressure point distortions.
The Naked SUP is offered in a sleek matte black powder coat finish that looks great and is very heavy duty. Even though the rack is mostly hidden when displaying your paddleboard, we have still gone the extra mile to make what little that does show look awesome!
Recommended Paddleboard Sizing
SUPs come in many shapes and sizes so it is a challenge to have one rack that fits every SUP. Here are ideas of the sizes that the Naked SUP Rack can hold:
-The Naked SUP works well with most inflatable SUPs. We know it can be a hassle to constantly inflate and deflate them.
-The Naked SUP is NOT meant for touring boards, they have too wide of a hull and the geometry to lean the board back against the wall does not work.
The Naked SUP is our newest addition to the Naked Rack lineup. It took the longest to develop due to the size and weight of paddleboards. It is one thing to make a rack to hold a skateboard or short surfboard on the wall and it is another thing to hold up a 50lb SUP that is 12ft long. We introduced a new strengthening rib that adds a lot of rigidity and strength while keeping the rack as low profile as possible.
Everyone who has seen the Naked SUP in action is pretty impressed with how cool it looks, your SUP basically floating there on the wall. One of the really strong points of the Naked SUP and the Naked Racks lineup is their simplicity. Keeping it to the basics makes for a really strong, yet minimalistic rack. This is the magic combination of looks, functionality, and price that our customers are looking for. Get yours today!
PS - do me a favor and tell your SUP crew to get one too!
Hey! This is Josh from StoreYourBoard, here today to talk to you about the Naked SUP Rack for standup paddleboards. What we get is these two arms. You have four screws to mount it to the wall, pop through the holes like that, and an instruction sheet. The Naked SUP Rack is part of our Naked series. Basically what it is, is a compact sturdy rack that tries to be as minimalistic as possible. You can see it mounted behind me with the paddleboard in it. The racks are holding the big paddleboard just fine and it’s very minimalistic doing its job, displaying the board, and also storing it at the same time.
What you get is these two rack arms. They’re made from aluminum. Then we put a very nice powder coat on it that’s matte. It looks great, doesn’t show fingerprints. It doesn’t scratch very easily. After that, they put a very thick piece of industrial felt on it, nice and thick but also dense so that it protects your board edge nicely. When you lay it on the rack, you have no scratching, no excuse with long-term storage, anything like that.
For the Naked SUP Rack, it’s actually our biggest Naked Rack. We have some for snowboards, surfboards, and whatnot but the Naked SUP is for the biggest paddleboards, heaviest, longest, anything like that. The key thing that you’ve done is we’ve actually put a strengthening rib in them. This is one that is not finished powder-coated or put in felt, but as you can see, there’s a rib right in the center there. What that does is it has a lot of rigidity and a lot of strength to this rack to be able to hold the bigger boards.
The other thing that we’ve done is we’ve bent it so that it’s just up off of parallel with the ground such that if you do put a really heavy board and it bends just a tad bit, it’s still level and still looks nice. Here it is behind me. I’m going to take this down to kind of show you what it is. The other really cool thing is you can just put your paddle right behind. It looks great. No problem, so we’ll take that down as well.
When you’re going to install it, you know you get two separate ones. The cool thing is you can mount them as wide or as close as you need it, based on your board, based on your mounting space. I have these mounted about 4 feet apart. Our board that we’re using today is about a 10-footer, so you don’t want to have it mounted way, way on the end but you don’t want to mount them right beside each other either. You also want to think about how high up you mount them. Basically you want to be able to lift the paddleboard on and lift it off easily. You got to worry about if there’s anything below or above you as far as different things that will get in the way.
In general we have a couple of guidelines for the type of paddleboard that we want to mount on this. We say up to 50 pounds. These things are pretty rock solid potentially over that but 50 pounds is good to go by, 36 inches wide. Once it gets too wide, the angle about kind of leaned back, starts to get not as big and we’re worried about it falling out. Then also boards 6 inches thick and less. Some of the Touring boards displacement hulls, they get really, really wide. These unfortunately is not the rack but it fits a lot, a lot of boards out there and looks great doing it.
When you do it, you want to try to definitely hit the studs. If you were mounting into a drywall stud-backed wall, studs are 16 inches on center typically so go into divisible number of 16 to try to mount it. If you need to use drywall anchors, get something rated to the weight of your board so that you know that it’s going to hold it. We really recommend studs or something else that’s firmly in the wall. Basically this is what it looks like. All you do is mark it and then you drill it and then you put your screws right in like that. Once you have it, you kind of want to push down on this, rock solid like I said. Grab the board. Put it up in the front right like that. Just kind of gently. Lean it back. There it is. The Naked SUP Rack from StoreYourBoard. Check it out.
Exactly what I was looking for - super happy with my purchase.
Great product. Sturdy and well designed. Easy to hang. Protects board well.
Stores my board easily and out of the way. Easy install!
I was wondering what I would do with my SUP when I moved into a different space. I mounted my board on the Naked SUP rack high and in a hallway. Not only is it easy access to the back door, but it also looks cool on an otherwise useless wall.
I purchased these brackets because I live in a small apartment and could only mount my board on the wall. They arrived quickly and are great quality! Very happy!!
We wanted to mount our SUPs efficiently while also using them as a display piece, when not in use. The Naked SUP was a perfect solution. It is simple to install and comes with everything that you need. The boards can be placed/removed by one person if need be. There is sufficient room behind the board to place multiple paddles. Because of the design, there is a lot of flexibility on where you can place the mounts. I would highly recommend this product for SUPs.
I purchased to low profile storage brackets for use in our garage to store a SUP once they are padded and do not protrude too far they worked out perfectly
As advertised this product works great. Worth the dollars. Quality product that was easy to install.
The Naked SUP rack is super easy to install, looks great, and keeps our boards safely off the floor. Well worth it!
Awesome product and fast service
Simple design and installs easily.
Shipping was expedited quickly without me paying extra. It was ridiculously easy to install and the quality of the product is legit. Great space saver. I love it. : )
Exactly what I was looking for in price and function. Very sturdy and easy to hang. Bought one for my surfboard too.
Great material, fast delivery
I needed a product that could withstand outdoor conditions including saltwater. This product was a perfect fit!
It was easy to put up and works great! It's also a great way to show my board and make the room look organized.
Love the Naked/minimal SUP rack, my Starboard looks great in it!
There isn't much to say other than it looks good and it holds my board. I drilled it into some studs and looks good in my apartment. The website was very quick with shipping my order
I have the naked surf rack from StoreYourBoard already so I thought I would try the SUP version out for my new board. Wow this thing is heavy duty! I thought the surf rack was strong, this has way thicker metal and no problem holding my SUP. I think the padding is a little thicker as well which is a nice touch to keep my board looking new.
Perfect for my beach house! Thanks
This rack was easy to install using the included instructions and hardware. The rack holds the board well, displaying the colorful details, and due to the short end pieces, it is very easy to lift the board off of the rack for use. Definitely recommend this rack for an area where the board will not merely be stored, but also on display.
Rack arrived quicker than expected and it was so easy to install. This is great that I can "store" my board but really I like how it displays the graphics on my new Yolo Eclipse board. It is like I just got a new piece of art on the wall!
