I want to add a surf board rack for a Hyperlite Landlock board. My tower is a Wakeair Vanquish which comes on a lot of Sangers. The rack came with two swivel board racks but the surf board is too big for them. Can you get a surf rack from Wakeair that will insert into the existing swivel bracket or do I need to get another rack to attach to the tower...if so, what is a decent board rack for this tower...
thanks...jg

J, I would just buy a Monster Surfboard rack. They are only $190, you can mount on the small horizontal bar above the standard rack on the tower, and they have quick releases so you can pull them off.

I have a v215 with the same tower and second the Monster Surfboard rack. I have been very happy with it.

I don't know if you've tried but those usually fit in standard racks, well at least the Broadcasts do.

Thanks..I will check out the Monster Surfboard rack--and I have tried to get the board in the wake rack ( I think the Landlock is one of the biggest boards) but it is too big-- the tower is still folded --when I raise the tower again I will give it another try..
thanks.. jg

I just checked out the Monster Tower rack and the installation instructions say not to mount to a horizontal part of the tower - anyone know why or had any issues doing so?

We use an Endless Wave surf rack for boards that don't fit in the standard racks, works really well.

Our clamps use a delrin insert between the clamp and the tower so that the clamp doesn't damage the tower. On a horizontal bar there is a decent chance that the clamp will rotate around the tubing with weight in the rack or hitting rough water. If you wanted to drill a set screw into the clamp you could and that would hold it tight, but mounting on an at least somewhat vertical tubing (such as a rear leg) takes care of the issue, which is what we recommend.

I have all Monster Tower gear (MT1, two racks and mirror) and I love their quality and service. They are well designed (plastic sleeve protecting tower, quick release) as well.

The Broadcast will fit in a standard board rack, the Landlock is thicker and will not. Our crew went with the Broadcast 5.6'.

With the MT board racks most surfers (thin ones) will fit but you may have to trim the rubber inserts with a knife. I trimmed the top spot on both racks. Still holds boards fine.
