This is our top of the line, outdoor kayak and SUP storage rack. Made of stainless steel and customizable with straight and angled arms to fit your configuration of kayaks and paddleboards, this rack is built to stand up to serious outdoor exposure. The heck with lugging your paddleboards and kayaks around every time you want to use them. Get this rack and leave them at the water's edge. Customize it to fit up to 5 paddleboards, up to 5 kayaks, or a mix of both.
Made of Stainless Steel. To be precise, this rack is constructed from 1-1/2” diameter, 304 marine grade mirror polished stainless steel tubing with 356 anodized aluminum connection joints. This is heavy duty stuff that is built to withstand outdoor exposure for many years. We know docks, decks, and other outdoor spaces suited for this rack get hit with nasty weather, and this rack is built to handle it all while storing your paddleboards and kayaks safely and securely. If you're going to leave your gear out on your dock, check out this SUP lock or kayak lock for theft protection.
How is it secured to the ground? This rack is made to be bolted to your dock, deck, or any other floor space using included mounting hardware. The entire rack sits over your dock or floor space.
How many kayaks and SUPs can it hold? Holds up to 5 paddleboards, 5 kayaks, or a mix of both. Select your mix of straight and angled rack arms to fit your kayaks and SUPs.
If more storage is required visit our Double Sided SUP & Kayak Rack listing. It's the same rack, but double sided for twice the storage.
Rack Arms: Made of stainless steel and include stainless steel installation fasteners. All arms come as pairs (set of 2). Each arm's tip has a tie down point to use to secure your kayaks or SUPs (tie downs not included). UV resistant foam padding covers the arms to protect your kayaks and SUPs when racking and unracking. Note that the base of the rack serves as 1 straight storage arm.

In several of the pictures it seems that the additional straight arms are longer than the base arms, is this the case?
Yes, the straight arms on this Kayak/SUP rack are 36" long, which is a couple of inches longer than the base of the rack system.
While that may seem a bit strange, the way the rack system is built and mounted to the deck, it works well; at about 33" long at the base the bottom kayak or boat still has more than enough support underneath it.
Looking for a stainless steel marine grade quality rack that can be fastened to our dock which will hold a tandem kayak, 2 single kayaks and 2 SUP's. Would also be able to lock everything.
This stainless steel rack should work well for what you need to store on your dock.
It has a base level included, that would store one of the kayaks - the longest one (say the tandem if that is the longest); then you could order it with either 4 sets of additional straight arms, to have 5 levels total, to hold the rest of the kayaks and the SUPs.
Alternately, you could order it with 2 sets of angled arms to hold the SUPs angled, and 2 sets of the straight arms. Again, that would get you a total of 5 levels with the bottom straight level. Either way would work, though angled arms are often preferred for SUPs, and would give you a little more room to adjust where they are on the rack.
As to your other needs, it does mount to docks (it must be, as it is not a freestanding rack), and the mounting hardware is included. It is stainless steel, so can be used outdoors in a salt-water environment.
For locking your boards, we recommend using the dock lock system: https://www.storeyourboard.com/sup-lock-system-dock-locks/ - it is a 10 foot long locking cable, that has a special jaw clamp used to attach to a SUP via the leash plug or fin box, and then that is secured to the locking cable; you can buy an additional jaw clamp to secure the second board to the same locking cable (you can secure several boards to the locking cable as long as you have a jaw clamp for each board). Those work great to secure the boards.
Kayaks are a bit trickier to lock, but you can find some options to secure the boats here: https://www.storeyourboard.com/kayak-locks-and-safety.
Does the 42” width include the back support? Does the back support get bolted down too?
For this dock SUP & Kayak rack, the 42 & 3/8th" depth is the full depth; the base piece or leg is attached to the upright, vertical post -- it is basically an "L" shape. That L piece is bolted down to the dock.
We installed the rack on our dock and it looks great and it's very well built. The company is very responsive and everything with the shipping went smoothly. Thank you!
Only took my handyman an hour to secure to the dock. Very sturdy and should hold up well to the salt water exposure.
SUP rack works and looks great. Many people stop and ask us where we got it from.
We have three kayaks on the rack so far, and plan to add two paddle boards. Over the weekend, while we were away, we have a Nor'Eastern go through with 30+ MPH winds. We have each kayak secured with one cord only. The rack is mounted to our floating dock and we are on a larger river just off the Atlantic Ocean.
The rack held up perfectly. All kayaks are safe and secure, and the rack is still on the floating dock solid, despite what must have been huge waves!
Highly recommend this rack!
I have built different storage for my 2 Kayaks and 2 SUP's which held them o.k.. Recently having built a new patio I decided to look for something more professional and sturdy. This product was the perfect choice for looks, function and I would expect longevity. It is very well made. I also enjoyed the nice people at Storeyourboard.com who assisted me.
The overall quality of the rack seems very good but he way it is mounted on the dock seems a bit flimsy and we might need to add steel wires in order to reinforce the stability. Also two boxes of the arms arrived with opened ends and the bolts which are just loose inside the box were missing. Customer service still has not acknowledged my requests to send additional bolts.
