Vertical Surf Racks are hands down one of the best way you can store and protect your surfboard. Not only are the the quickest way to store your quiver, but also the most convenient for any serious surfer. If you surf more a than once per week, a vertical surf rack can save you time, all the while still displaying your boards in style. Simply slide in your boards and your all set. Here are some of our favorite vertical surf racks on the market.
If you looking for a solid vertical rack, one of our favorites has to be from bordzup. This racks has a more modern look, compared to most made from wood, and also has a nice padded arm to help support your board. This rack gets our top vote because of it’s stability. Most other vertical racks simply have one point of contact and can slide out once bumped. The padding arm from bordzup helps to eliminate this problem, although expect to pay a premium.
The Venice racks are also one of our favorites. This rack comes in versions of 2,3, or 4 surfboards and can hold both your shortboards or longboards. You can simply mount the rack in any way that best will serve your quiver.
Another rack to be sure to check out is the vertical rack from T-Rax. (first picture shown). This rack is installed and works in the same way as the Venice rack. T-rax versions come in 1,2,3,4,5 and 6 rack versions.
Please not when using any type of vertical rack, we suggest having some type of pad in place for the base of your surfboard. This will keep the board free from scrapes and damage.Rubber floor mats are a great choice, as they are not effected by water.
