I've got the Monster surf rack, and it's a killer rack for a GREAT price. Holds my Blue Lake and Red Chubbie (albeit not @ the same time) boards well, and will accomodate much thicker boards as well.

There's a company based out of Idaho called dbot5... they make a rack that holds 2 surfboards if that's what you're looking for.

dbot5 website

Well-made product... I've used the racks before, and it's good stuff.

Have to help one of our sponsors from the INT Wakesurfing Series. IMO the best and most versatile surfboard rack on the market handles all kinds of boards. Even thick surfstyle boards will work. Also allows a choice of mounting locations, tower, swimdeck and side deck of boat.

thanks everyone for your responses. if it helps any i have a 5'4" Fish from the guys at XBC so the rack will need to fit that board. rite now the 2insane racks are looking the most promising.

With that board you will have to be careful about pressure dents. I think that the 2nsane or the Shoreline flat rack on top of the tower would be the best to save your board. You should like the XBC board. I have surfed that board and I weigh 265 or so. Not really designed for my weight but surfable nonetheless. Gary is trying to get me to demo the Chubby 5'7"

calvin - i can second the dbot5 stuff - add their surf rack that holds 2 boards and then strap-on to hold a third - i know for sure the strap-on holds the XBC.

The Dbot5 racks also have a quick release. It's nice to be able to easily remove the racks for towing or storage.

Check out DBot5 with their quick release so they don't come up missing, plus the piggyback system that lets you add a 3rd board rack on the bottom of their board rack so you can hold three boards on one rack.

I know that a Shredstixx will not fit in a Dbot5 without the extra piece I believe.

I just bought the DBot5 after checking all the advice on these pages and the manufacturer's sites. Bought it because it holds 2 boards or 3 with the add on so you only need one rack. Mounts really easy. It does hold my Shreddstix. Highly recommend.

The DBOT5 racks are awesome. Just got mine in, wake racks with the strap on surf rack attachment. Plus 2 sets of the lights.

Yes, they have a surf only rack too.

Under racks, the AXL. It is a surf only rack that holds two surf boards. It mounts at any angle and is also quick disconnect.
