Wall Racks for Surf, SUP and Snow and Skate Boards

SURFDOGZ WALL RACKS

In 1999 Surfdogz began selling a wide range of surfing products on line – including surfboard wall racks by other manufacturers. We soon realized that the racks on the market were poorly made and expensive. So we put our engineering background to use, and were soon selling our own line of racks – strong, good looking and reasonably priced. We have since sold thousands of sets and have an army of loyal customers (have a look at the customer reviews on Amazon!)
We offer our traditional solid Poplar base rack (gloss finish) and our all-weather High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) base models.

Racks incorporate our MODULAR design. This means you can “stack” them to create four or six board rack etc. The racks butt together and peg spacing remains constant. Surfboard racks sets are available one, two, three, or four boards. Shipped fully assembled with mounting hardware (1/4” hex head lag screws – not just wood screws) and instructions included.

Surfdogz Surfboard wall racks are recommended for surfboards up to thirty pounds and twenty-four inches wide.

SURFBOARD WALL RACKS

Surfdogz surfboard wall racks are designed to accommodate both short and long boards, including heavy classic boards. The pegs are 1/2″ diameter, 19″ long galvanized steel tube (no PVC sprinkler pipe or wooden dowels here!), spaced at 8″ on center (tilted up 10 degrees). Available in one, two, three and four board models, in Poplar or HDPE base. Shipped fully assembled with mounting hardware (1/4” hex head lag screws – not just wood screws) and instructions included.

SUP WALL RACKS

Surfdogz SUP wall racks are designed to accommodate stand up paddleboards. The pegs are 3/4″ diameter, 27″ long galvanized steel tube (no PVC sprinkler pipe or wooden dowels here!), spaced at 10″ on center (tilted up 10 degrees). Available in one, two, and three board models, in Poplar or HDPE base. Shipped fully assembled with mounting hardware (1/4” hex head lag screws – not just wood screws) and instructions included.

Surfdogz SUP wall racks are recommended for paddleboards up to forty pounds and thirty-four inches wide.

SNOWBOARD/SKATEBOARD WALL RACKS

Our snowboard/skateboard racks feature the same rugged construction as our famous Surf and SUP racks. Steel tube pegs 12” long, covered with protective foam, are pressed into either lacquered poplar, or gloss black polyethylene (HDPE*) bases. Pegs are spaced at 8” center-to-center to allow room for snowboard bindings and skateboard wheels.

Snowboard/Skateboard racks are sold in sets of two and are fully assembled for easy installation. Mounting screws are included. Available in 1, 2, 3, and 4 board models.

*HDPE – High Density Polyethylene – is the recycled material used in applications like picnic tables and benches. It is weatherproof and nearly indestructible, with an attractive, smooth, gloss black finish.

WALL RACK FAQS

Q: How strong are Surfdogz Racks?
A: Our racks, both wood and HDPE base, are designed to support even the heaviest long boards and paddleboards. They match or surpass even the expensive metal racks on the market, and our racks will not rust or corrode.

Q: Which is better, Surfdogz wood or polyethylene base?
A: Strength wise, they are comparable. Poplar has a warm oak stain finish, where HDPE (black) has a sleek, modern look, and has the advantage of being weather-proof. (HDPE racks are supplied with hot-dip galvanized fasteners, which will resist corrosion and rust for many years)

Q: How far apart should the racks be spaced?
A: We recommend skipping one wall stud (usually spaced at 16”) so that the racks end up 32” apart. This is just right for long or short boards.

Q: Why are there so many mounting screws on the HDPE racks?
A: In tests, the HDPE rack pegs tended to sag slightly under heavy load. The rack was not damaged, and returned to its original position when the load was removed.
By positioning a mounting bolt just above each peg this problem has been completely eliminated.

Q: What is HDPE?
A: High Density Polyethylene is a recycled thermo-plastic material made from reprocessed polyethylene containers, such as milk bottles. It is an extremely strong and heavy structural material that is impervious to moisture. It contains no organic fillers, like wood chips, as do cheaper “plastic lumber” materials. California uses HDPE to construct picnic benches at state beaches and parks.

THE HUNDRED POUND BOARD TEST.

Each type of Surfdogz wall rack (Surfboard and SUP) is load tested with fifty pounds of down force, on a single peg, twelve inches out from the base. This is the equivalent of a one hundred pound surfboard at rest on the rack set. In all tests, deflection of the rack peg was insignificant with no permanent deformation or damage to the peg/base connection point. We don’t recommend trying this on any other brand of rack!
