Best Surfboard Wall Racks
You don’t really need a lot of space to store your surfboards, but it’s really nice to buy the best surfboard wall rack that will do a much better job at storing your surfboards without them getting scratches and dings. The different types of surfboard wall racks depend on how much space you have at your home, office or store.
The two types of surfboard wall racks we recommend for easy use, easy set-up, and not a lot of space needed are:
- This vertical Surfboard Storage Wall Rack on Amazon.com. PLEASE do not make the same mistake as us and put a carpet under so that the board’s tails can rest on a soft material. This rack will allow you to put it up on the wall and store your surfboards vertically, for easy use of the surfboards.
- This horizontal Surfboard Wall Rack on Amazon.com. It’s a little hard to put it up on the wall because you have to calculate the width needed for the surfboards. This one is a nice one because the boards are stored at an angle for easy reach and storage.
Vertical Storage Surfboard Wall Rack
The vertical surf storage wall rack that we recommend for easy storage of surfboards is the 6 Surfboard Mount. It’s PERFECT for short and long surfboards! This rack allows you to store up to 6 surfboards, which means one per space. But if your surfboards are small and thin, you can fit even more than 6. However, do keep in mind that you need extra space on the side of it so you can pull out and put in your surfboards without scratching them. Also, you want to put a mat or carpet on the floor so that the tail of your surfboards do not get dings from sitting on a hard surface.
If you own at least a couple surfboards, you really should get a wall rack for storing your equipment and surfboards. When we first started having more than one board, it would be very hard to keep them safe on a hard surface without having anything around. We would try to put them against the wall but sometimes they would fall and break, and then we had them on the floor but they would take so much more space.
Instead of us saving money and store our boards like we did, we spent $50 and got the vertical wall rack. Now it is super easy to get our surfboards, and easy to store them. Honestly, it even looks really nice and organized.
PLEASE don’t try to save money and skip the storing capability. It will save you money and fewer injuries for your surfboards.
Horizontal Surfboard Wall Rack
This basic surfboard wall rack is exactly what you see in movies and shops. It is a very nice decoration for anywhere in your house. We have friends that have it in their living room and it looks really beachy and original in the house. However, it does require a lot more space. You need space to hang it on the wall, you need enough length depending on the surfboard’s length, and you need a lot of space in front to pull them out of the rack.
This rack hangs completely on the wall, the surfboards are at an angle sideways and the fins are hanging out to one side. The is why space is required, so you don’t bump your head on those sharp fins when sitting up from a chair.
I love the way this rack looks and the way the surfboards are hanging, it is beautiful. But on the other side, it is not very convenient when surfing all the time. Depending on how high you hang the racks, the top surfboard might be too high to reach without a step.
After all, both of these surfboard wall racks are amazing and both are very efficient for storing and showing your surfboards. It all depends on the space and what you are trying to do with it. Some people just get the racks to hang surfboards they will never surf again but as decorations (we do, it looks great). So think about what are your goals with your surfboards and then get the best surfboard wall rack that fits YOU. Both of them are amazing!
