I found these awesome do it yourself vertical surfboard racks that can be made for under $50 dollars. I think the vertical rack systems are the way to go for those of us with multiple surfboards that are used regularly. There is no better rack for ease of use and less hassle than the vertical rack. These vertical racks are definitely one of my favorite do it yourself projects. They also allow for easy expansion, for those who cant so no to another surfboard. I love the added eye hooks on the end of the dowels with the nylon to keep the surfboards in place. Surprisingly, to build these beauties you don’t need much. Here is what you need:
* a 2×4
* wood dowels (24″ per board)
* wood screws
These are the supplies for the more fancy racks.
* wood glue
* padding for the dowels
* padding for the boards’ tails
* a safety mechanism to hold the boards in place like hook and eye sets and nylon twine
Simple enough, I believe I read total build time was about 5 hours. Not to shabby for some quality racks.
You can check out detailed instructions, as well as pictures from blog El Portal Fridays.
If you know of any other DIY surfboard racks from others or ones who have made let me know and I will post them up.
As always, happy surfing.
