GRASSRACKS - THE HISTORY
On a warm day in Pennsylvania, west of the hustle and bustle of Philadelphia, down The Main Line’s Route 30, past the outcroppings of houses, small forests, and babbling brooks, and in the heart of the serene tranquility that is Malvern, two young friends stood perplexed whilst staring at an all-too-common blank wall.
How does one decorate such a thing?! .. and what does one do with their boards, bikes and skis!? As many a sports enthusiasts can tell you, they are difficult questions.
“Why not put our nice boards on our wall?” said the absurdly tall friend to the average yet very adequately heighted friend. Upon hearing those words, a frenzy of internet trolling and searching began to find the perfect mounting system deserving of their gorgeous and masterfully crafted equipment. After many frustrating hours of research, it seemed that only cheap and ugly board racks existed but certainly nothing worthy of the works of art that were their boards, skis, and bikes. It was at this moment that another sentence was uttered that would define the next few years of their life, “let’s make our own.” And that, my friends, is the story of how Grassracks was created.
Grassracks, like many other companies, was created out of necessity. We realize that equipment isn’t just something that gets us from point A to point B, it’s something that we spend hours designing or selecting and years growing attached to before it ultimately tells the story of our active life.
We seek to answer the question of how to properly display and store beloved equipment. When we created the brand we had 3 goals:
- Create something gorgeous and deserving of the boards and homes in which they reside.
- Create something strong and functional to protect and display equipment properly.
- Create something that’s easy to install.
Mix that with our eco-friendly focus and you have the best racks on the market.
