Frequently Asked Questions

Ask a Question
  • hi quick question, the grassy rack, does it have foam underneath for protection? as far as protection which one is softer, grassy rack or foam rack?

    + Show Answer

    Great question.  To answer you directly the Grassy does not have any additional foam padding underneath.   

    Comparatively, the Grassy is pretty much in alignment with the Foamy in terms of their "softness" factor for protection. 

    That being said if I were a surfboard I would probably choose the foam as it just feels better.   

    Really though they both offer more than adequate protection for surfboards.  

  • Does the locking bungee make it secure? We will store them outside on the patio. Will it be fairly weather proof?

    + Show Answer

    The locking bungee is meant to add another layer of protection from the boards falling out of the rack.  That being said best practice is to store the boards properly in the rack, so they are not resting on the bungee.  We've used our own personal boards with it on the patio for years with no problems.  

    As for use in the outdoors, it would be fine, but as it's a sanded wood finish you'd want to put some type of outdoor sealant (easily found at Lowe's or Home Depot) over the wood to protect it from harboring moisture & bacteria.   This will ensure the rack will last for many seasons to come.  If you'd rather not go through the process of applying a sealant we have the Finished Foamy version which has a Gloss Mohogany outdoor sealant already applied.  This rack is ready to go in the outdoors!

  • I have two 10 1/2 foot paddle boards will vertical foamy work with these boards?

    + Show Answer

    That rack might be just a bit undersized for those boards, as it's meant for surfboards not Stand Up Paddleboards.    Our SUP version of the Foamy or Grassy rack will be better suited for this situation.    It's a very similar design just meant for larger & heavier boards.  The rack is taller, has higher structural integrity, and greater width for the bigger fins of SUP boards.  These racks hold 3 boards (instead of the 5 or 7 of the standard racks.)    We could also do something custom if you'd prefer.  Feel free to email us any other questions at  or Call Us Directly at 888-964-6646

  • Hi is it possible to dismantle the rack?

    + Show Answer

    Yes, this rack usually ships flat-packed, with a simple assembly process that includes color-coded stickers.   So it makes it easy if you need to ever disassemble and move at a later point.

  • Looking at the 5 board so the height of the rack is 42 and the depth is 24 ? Its going in the garage and want to make sure I can still get the car in. So it will stick out from the wall 24 inches? thanks

    + Show Answer

    Yes, the furthest from the wall it comes out is 24".    

    However, if you have wider boards (retro fishes / longboards) the boards themselves may come out past this 24" point.  Please measure accordingly (+4" over your board width for enough wiggle room.)

  • Will this rack hold longer stand up paddle boards? I have a couple of 12' boards, would they be too tall for this? Is the rack weatherproof for outdoor use?

    + Show Answer

    This rack isn't meant for SUP boards, just surfboards.  We have an SUP version which would accommodate those larger boards you have (It is bigger, and has better structural reinforcement.)  The rack can be found HERE.

    As for weather sealing, it is not.  It is a sanded wood finish, ready for sealant yourself or we could do it for you as a custom order. If interested please email us at:

  • What is the width for each partition? If I keep my boards in board bags, will each slot hold 1 board in bag?

    + Show Answer

    The workable space in each slot of this rack is just over 4.5".  We've seen people store boards in their bags with no problems. 

    However, it also could be a little tight, as it will come down to how thick each of your boards are, and how thick the board bags are.

    If they're on the thicker side 3"+ we coud aways do a custom rack for a little more, so you'll have plenty of wiggle room.  

  • What is the spacing in between the dowels on the 7 board vertical rack? Some of my boards are thinner than others so wondering if I may be able to fit two in one slot. thanks in advance.

    + Show Answer

    The 'workable' space between dowels on the 7 board rack (also the same for the 5 board version) is just under 4.5".

    Some people have been able to squeeze 2 (thin) boards into each slot, but could be tight.  There are a lot of variables in terms of where the rocker is placed, and how the deck of the board has been shaped.  For general consideration I wouldn't recommend it, as a tight fight will cause pressure on the boards (potentially decreasing the longevity of the board's glass job.)  

    We could however make something custom for you, with wider dowel spacing so that 2 boards can comfortably fit into each slot, though this will increase the price for the unit itself, and potentially the shipping cost.  If you'd like to explore options for this you can fill out our custom order request form here.

  • I see the measurements for the 7 board rack are 42x46x24. Curious to know if the rack is 42" or 46" wide. So I can figure out where I can fit one against the wall. Thanks!

    + Show Answer

    The size for the 7-board vertical freestanding rack is:

    • 42" High
    • 46" Wide
    • 24" Deep

    The size for the 5-board freestanding rack is:

    • 42" High
    • 34" Wide
    • 24" Deep

  • Hi there -- 3 questions!

    I want the 7 board rack in natural wood.

    1) I have a tight space - just 47 inches. The measurement says 46 inches which is perfect. I just want to make sure that the 46" is from end to end so that it will fit in my spot.

    2) Does the natural wood have a finish or not? If not, can I order a clear finish? Is that recommended or not?

    3) I am away from my house until August 28 and want the rack to arrive around then. I can pre-order and you can hold shipment or you can tell me what day to place the order. What is best?

    Many thanks, David

    + Show Answer

    1.  Yes the 46" measurement (on the 7-board version) is the end to end spacing.  So you should be good if you have 47" of availble space.  Though please take into consideration the fin size of your boards, as sometimes the fins "hang over" outside of this alotted 46" spacing.  If it's really tight you can also store the boards nose-to-tail to help.  


    2.  The natural wood (sanded wood) does not have a sealant (or finish).  It is ready to directly apply a clear coat yourself, or we can do a custom sealant for $199 more (this is unfortunately not availble on our website yet, so you'll need to call us at 888-964-6646 if you'd like to move forward with this upgrade.)  You can also order this with a darker natural finish (and included high-gloss clear-coat) directly here:

    As for recommendation:  the finish on these racks is high gloss, and outdoor friendly - so if you're planning on using the surf rack outdoors it is absolutely recommended.   Otherwise it's not required.   A benefit of a wood finish is that it somewhat helps with the overall longevity of the wood product, and also helps with general upkeep (by preventing dust from being "absorbed" into the porous areas of the wood grain - which can happen on any unfinished wood product.)  The latter doesn't make a huge difference, but can definitely be noticeable, depending on where the rack is stored, and how dusty the location is.    


    3.  We'd be happy to coordinate a delayed shipping time, so that the product arrives when you're around.  You can place the order directly via our site, and enter the date in which you'll arrive (preferably the window of time in which you'll be at that location), in the "add comments" section of the checkout process.  Let us know if you have any questions at all with this, as we're available Monday thru Friday at 888-964-6646.  

  • Hi, Will this 5 board rack fit 5 SUP surf boards? All under 9 feet and max thickness is 4 inches. Thanks!

    + Show Answer

    Though it may seem to fit, we don't recommend it, as the width of the SUP doesn't allow the board to be stored correctly.  The ergonomics of this rack were not designed to hold SUP.

    We recommend using the 3-Board Foamy - SUP version instead.

    You can also email us at and we can modify this rack to suit your needs.


  • Are your prices in US$ or AUD$

    + Show Answer

    All of our prices are in US $ Dollars.

  • Does the woody surf rack come assembled and/or what does it require to be assembled?

    + Show Answer

    When we ship this rack it comes flat-packed.  It has a simple assembly, broken down into 6 steps, with color coded stickers.  It should take no longer than 10-15 minutes to put together.  All that is needed is a Phillips-head screwdriver. A drill is suggested, but not needed.

    If the rack is purchased and picked up using the 'Local Pickup' option used at checkout then the rack will come fully assembled.

  • Whats the difference between the two freestanding surf racks you have on your website? I live in San Diego and want to purchase a rack asap. Im looking at the two 5 rack vertical options.


    + Show Answer

    There are essentially two options available for our freestanding surf racks.  These are Horizontal Loading, and Vertical Loading.  


    The Vertical Loading racks made of wood are all hand-built in San Diego, and are designed to economize space, all while looking great.  We have many colors and styles to choose from, something to match any room's furnishings.


    The Horizontal Loading racks have two further designs. A Metal version and a Wood/Metal version.  The former are made overseas hence the cheaper pricing, but the quality is still really nice.  The Wood/Metal versions are hand-made in San Diego, and are typically wood grain, but can be customized to any color / style desired.  Just go to our 'Custom Order' tab at the top of our page, and you can request a quote for what you're looking for.


    One major difference is the Horizontal loading racks can accommodate both Surfboards, and Stand Up Paddleboards (SUP.)  While the Vertical loading racks are suitable for surfboards up to 10' in legnth, and are more designed around efficiency of space.  


    As for living in San Diego, you can simply choose "Local Pickup" option during checkout, and avoid any shipping.  Some of these racks come fully assembled upon request.

  • Can you make one of these for 8 boards?

    + Show Answer

    Yes we can.  It would be a custom build, but can easily do it for you.  Please email for details.

  • How do fishes and other wider boards fit into the freestanding racks? Also if I live in San Diego can I come pick up the rack? thanks Ben

    + Show Answer

    Wider boards such as Fishes / Mini-Simmons fit well in the rack.

    Since swallow tail/fish boards are pointed we recommend getting a rack with a padded base (foamy or grassy version) This helps protect the longevity of the glass job, especially in these delicate areas.


    As for local-pickup not a problem.  You simply select 'Local-Pickup' during the checkout process, to avoid any shipping costs, and we¹ll be in touch as soon as it¹s ready for pickup.
