Surfboard Rack for Home
When you’ve rinsed off and hung the wettie up to dry, all you want to do is heat some leftovers and kick back on the couch, but don’t ignore the last pivotal step in your trip; proper surfboard storage. Hooking up your home with a surfboard rack that can protect your board and put it on display keeps your favorite hobby always within arms reach.
Display racks and shaping stands have come a long way. You don’t have to rely on empty corners or only surf ding-proof wooden surfboards anymore. Using suitable display racks will extend the life of your surfboard, prevent any unwanted trips to your local surf shop, and might just tie the whole room together.
Of course, not every surf rack serves as a bonafide surfboard display. There are loads of different ways to lean your surf gear against a wall, but there are only a few surfboard display racks that will stand the test of time. We’re here to walk you through the process step by step and shine a light on key factors to consider when outfitting your home with a free-standing or wall mounted surfboard display.
Once you’ve found the right system, you’ll be free to expand your quiver and always have the perfect board ready for whatever the day’s conditions.
Why You Should be Using a Surfboard Rack
Wall mounted surfboard storage racks may seem like one step too high to climb, but the right rack holds strong, looks good, and provides plenty of room for growth. Surfing is a lifelong sport. We all love the idea of getting a fresh board every few months, but that doesn’t mean I’m ready to deal with damaged surfboards every few months.
Surfers use all sorts of words to describe their favorite surfboard, but durable is not one of them. These highly specialized pieces of equipment don’t fare well on dry land. A vertical surfboard is one gust away from a fresh ding, and it’s only a matter of time before lackadaisical storage results in a trip to the board doctor.
I don’t care if you’ve got the fanciest lib tech webbing or a sun-drenched yellow poly; your surfboards can only take so much. Using a premium wooden surfboard display rack is the least you can do to protect your investment and head into the water without getting an unwelcome surprise in the parking lot.
It’s not just logistics, either. Until Mr. Merrick figures out compacting surfboards, each of your boards will take up about six feet of living space. As the boards start piling up, any room can feel messy if they’re not sorted and stored with care. There is no point in owning six different boards if you can’t access three of them! The right surf rack keeps things crisp and clear.
Critical Elements of Your Home Surfboard Storage Rack
Not every surfboard rack holds the same. There is no benefit to hooking your prized surfboard, skateboard, wakeboards, or sups to plastic pieces and concrete flooring. If your surfboard stand doesn’t correctly support your gear, you’re better off leaving it in the car.
Let’s Take a look at the nitty-gritty and find key elements that elevate your surf gear storage into a proper surfboard display.
Your surfboard storage rack will only take you as far as what’s holding it all together. Whether you’re shopping for a wall rack or want to keep your boards freestanding with a floor display rack, look for authentic, natural materials to guarantee your rack holds.
Too many modern racks cut corners with cheap metal alloys or plastic pieces in crucial areas. These may hold for a year or two, but nothing outlasts natural Bamboo and real wooden surfboard displays.
Material importance isn’t just relevant to load-bearing corners. Fill out your shaping stands with foam padding underneath the board, padded arms to hold strong yet gentle, and round out the rest of your surfboard rack with the real tough stuff.
The most common pitfall of a DIY surfboard rack is a faulty design. You can equip your indoor-outdoor storage arsenal with the best wooden surfboard storage materials, but your wall display can spill over and take up serious space without a few key design elements.
There are all sorts of display racks out there with a few extra arms and legs that jut out and complicate installation for no good reason. The best surfboard stand does more with less and safely stores shortboards and longboards while in a space efficient way.
As surfers, we get a unique seat at the edge of mother nature’s beauty. We also have a responsibility to protect the natural areas that give us the energy to explore our passions.
If rising sea levels and human construction impact our surf spots' bathymetry isn’t enough to get us paying attention, there won’t be pristine waves for us to ride much longer. None of us would litter the beaches and lots in front of our favorite waves, but our care should start and end at home with sustainable surfboard storage.
