A minimalist surf stand that sets up fast, stores small, and leaves no footprint.
Portable. The ShredPad is great for when you're on the go - use in the parking lot while changing into your wetsuit, or at your rental unit on your next surf trip. Of course you can use it at home as a no-installation-required surf rack in your garage, or even your shaping bay or repair shop.
Easy to Use. Simply throw the rubber surf mat on the floor, place your board's tail on the mat and lean your board against a wall (or car door). 2 included removable pads suctions to your board and the wall to create friction and eliminate lateral movement (also works great against vehicle windows!). The floor pad is corrugated to easily collect water that drips from your board after a session. Great for keeping rugs and floors clean and dry.
Durable Rubber Construction. Robust enough for any of the boards in your quiver, from thrusters to longboards.
- 10.2" W x 4.7" H
- 0.5' thick
Could I use this for my 12’ SUP? I’m trying to find something to hold my board steady at the back of the car, nose down, so I can slide it from the rear of the vehicle onto my roof rack.
Our surfboard stand/mat is not really designed for SUPs, and in normal use, as it is designed, you are placing the tail of the surfboard on the mat and leaning a board against a wall or your vehicle -- and using the included suction cups to help keep it in place. It can work for longboards, which in some cases are getting close in shape to a SUP - but because the shape & dimensions of a SUP and surfboard are so different, we don't normally recommend this mat/stand for SUPs.
For the use you are imagining, I am not certain how well it would stabilize your board/keep it in place, while you work to get it to the top of your vehicle's roof - and normally you don't put the nose end down on the mat, so it may not be perform stably in that position. It certainly is something one could try, but you would need to be careful if testing it out, since it is not guaranteed it would hold the SUP steady & in place. Again, I can't really recommend it, but it does seem like, if one thought they could otherwise put the mat system to use, it could be worth trying carefully.

Got these for my home office. Was thrilled I wouldnt have to mount anything to the walls. Kind of bummed they are out of stock on the color options tho.
Portable Board Stand

Good inexpensive way to store your board in a limited space. I like the thick tail pad and how it catches any water that dips out of the thruster plugs. The choice of wall grips is also a plus, I prefer to use the wall grip with the suction cups on the back of my board. If you are a renter the suction cup wall grip is the way to go, the self adhesive wall grip would probably cause some small wall damage if you would have to remove it. A good buy.

I have a wall mount surf rack so I need these little mats to protect my ever so fragile surfboards. You probably won't see anyone more protective of their surfboard than me so these will save the tail block from unwanted dings when you store it. I used to use towels or t shirts for this purpose.

The Portable Surfboard Stand was our best option for storing my board in our house. It keeps people and board safe and is more or less invisible. I love it.
