If you’re looking for the highest quality bike rack for your surfboard, look no further. This side-mounted surfboard carrier offers the most user friendly and stable way for you to bike to the beach with your surfboard. Made of aircraft-quality aluminum, this surfboard rack was engineered to be as lightweight and durable as possible. Whether you have a shortboard, longboard, beach cruiser, or bmx bike, this surfboard bike rack is designed to accommodate a wide range of needs. Spend more time surfing and less time looking for parking!
Quick Release: if you want to ride your bike without the rack, removing it is literally a push of two buttons! A push button at each rack arm removes the arms from your bike; reinsert the arms whenever you're ready to load your surfboard again.
How does it attach to my bike? The initial install of this rack is super easy! The rack itself is a set of 2 independent rack arms, 1 mounted at the front of your bike, and 1 mounted at the rear of your bike. (Keep in mind you won't be able to mount this on a bike with a front basket as it attaches where the basket is!) To begin, you simply secure the rack’s front U-clamp to your bike’s headstock (one of the strongest places on every bike). The clamp comes with padded rubber to protect your bike’s paint, and will fit a wide variety of head stock diameters. With the back clamp you have two options on where to mount it: the rear seat post or onto your bike’s preexisting rear basket (or metal splash guard). The rear rack mounting option allows this rack to accommodate a wider range of bikes and longer surfboard sizes. Have a shortboard?

Is there a locking device or key to make sure the board hangers can not be removed and stolen?
Our Removable Surfboard Bike Rack doesn't have a built-in lock to keep someone from removing the rack's arms; however, the quick release buttons to remove the arms only removes those cradles that would hold the board (for when you want to ride your bike but don't need to transport your board). It doesn't remove the actual hardware that attaches those arms to the bike, so the arms won't really be useable for much on their own, without that bike hardware...and someone would need some tools handy to remove the u-clamp and hardware elements from the front and rear of the bike, if they wanted to take the whole system off of the bike.
I had the liberty of using this product before buying ( not the same model but similar, same brand ) Works great I strap surfboards from 6ft to 10'8". The path to get to the spots I bike into is not nice nor user friendly (something close to mtn bike trail n crossing train tracks multiple times. I am not worried about my boards while they are in these racks.
I have a fishing boat I plan to use to go to remote places to surf, the clamps work on my T top to hold my longboard great. I had to find pipes on the T top similar to the size of a bicycle but that was no problem.
I really love the fact that It is removable for when I only want to fish.
This is a very solid rack that was easy to install with the excellent instructions. My recent trek involved parking at a state park and then biking 8 miles with my 9' longboard in the rack to the beach. The rack could not have performed better. This product will perform for years.
Closest break I like to go to is about a 3 minute bike ride from my house. The racks work great and are easy to remove as well.
Feedback is especially when I take the long board (10ft) the racks tend to jiggle a bit and get a little wobbly, which is understandable because of the push buttons it's not a rock solid hold.
Also when the racks have a board in them, short or long, the bike will lean over unless I'm holding it or on it. I have a kick stand but maybe need to get a shorter one to offset the tilt - or maybe I'm kookin' it and this is normal (these are my first surf bike racks).
Asides from that have had a bunch of fun sessions so far, saving gas, and would definitely recommend these racks to a friend!
I really love my Long board rack and use it on my fat tire bike. I had to have them send me a special bracket to fit the larger front tube, but it works great! The arms are bendable, so you can adjust the width. The bike sill rides smoothly. Easy to remove the arms when Im not going surfing. Great product!
Great rack easy to install. My 10' board fits on it to problem.
The bolts need to tightened on a constant basis. This is the main problem I have with the bike rack. I like the easy off, of the racks . This works well
My husband loved the surfboard bike rack and said it was easy to use, especially with it's convenience of the removable attachments. Thanks!!
well designed and easy to use. Prefer this over other racks on market by far. Did a lot of research and happy with decision. Easy to install too.
Decided to buy this and love it! I ride my bike fast and this rack is very durable and the way it is mounted on your bike it would make it difficult for someone to steal. I can store a long board, shortboard, and even boogie board on it with the dimensions. I could probably store two boards at one time if I tried.
The only recommendation would be for new owner to purchase some extra foam for rack for big bumps, use a towel for bumby roads, or even "store your board" to provide foam but it is a really easy fix.
Great product and I do not see it rusting.
Doesn't work if you have a front basket
Was surprised at the price after visiting my local Surf Shop and easily installed it in a mornings coffee time. Having a beach bike with thicker bars , I did need to use the longer U bolt and trim tips,but only minor difficulty. I do like being able to use left or right mounting and have entertained the thought of using 2 mounts so I could take a long&short board at same time...I have to deal with changing conditions of N. Fla Surf...would take some modifications and another set of mounts.Good product,well thought out , very happy with purchase.
I initially bought this product with a lot of concerns; would my board fit in the bike rack properly, would it bounce around and get dinged, would I be able to turn the bike and maneuver it while the board was in the rack, was it hard to assemble? All of my concerns have been resolved. Assembly was easy, the board is really stable in the rack, it is really easy to maneuver my bike. This is a great way to transport my surfboard, I love this bike rack!!!!
Easy to install and good quality
I like it. It was easy to assemble and works like it should.
Very easy to install once you have the right tools. The rack only took a little while to put together. I'm no engineer and it was simple to figure out what went where. My son is a lot more independent now. All quality parts, lightweight and strong and fit together very well.
