Decided to get ride of the home depot hooks and use up some wood I had laying around. Only cost was the $5 pipe foam I used in the notches. Anyone have a diy rack?

That's even better, if i had the cash for those racks id do that too, you cn load em up from the boat. And save space. Unfortunately my boat is covered in the back.

They're not expensive by any means, I think maybe $20ish at Home Depot. The nice part for me is I have room at the front of the boat to add 2 more if needed.

Those look great. Been thinking of making one myself. Might have to make it a weekend project.

Very nice. I want to make one myself for my garage to keep my boards. I just have a hard time finding space for everything. Do you have pics of the build at all? I only have two boards atm, wakeboard and wakesurf, but I'm tired of them standing up leaning against the wall. Does anyone have any info on a rack that hangs them vertically? I don't have much linear space on my walls left, but I could do both vertically if there was a good, practical way to do it.

I don't really have a write up with photos but I started with 2*6*8 boards, because 8 feet sat perfect floor to ceiling, then stenciled the cut outs, about 2.5"-3" for wakeboards and 3-3.5" for wake surfs. Basically draw them out on one board, then used a jig saw to cut out the grooves, but found the 2*6 board was too tough so I went with 1*6.


This is one of the 2*6 boards I started with, you get the idea. I spaced about 12" between slots to acommadate bindigs

Once you've got one cut out, use that to stencil the other side exactly like the first one, once you have those cut out I found a vertical stud in the wall and cut 7 12" pieces of a 2*4 board for the center, basically like a ladder then drilled the sides to the 12" pieces, stained and finished then used some pipe insulation foam for the cut outs, place rack centered on vertical studs, drill a screw into each center piece over stud, drink a beer.









Just make sure you angle the cuts downwards a little bit. I'm sure others can make nicer ones, this was a shot in the dark. In hindsight id make the cutouts a little smaller to make the board more snug. Maybe 2" for a wakeboard and 3 for wakesurf. You can always make em bigger, not smaller.

Might not be a write up, but it's pretty close. I like how you did that. I'm definitely going to have to give it a shot if I can find a free section of wall.

Welded this one a couple weeks ago for the new garage. 1 1/2" square-.095 tubing with 3/4" solid round, some plywood, carpet, and big casters to roll the whole thing in and out if I need to.

I too did the slot method. Mine was pretty simple but ended up being effective. Just two 2x10s that were slotted to hold boards and then used angle brackets to mount to my wall in my garage. Had that for a couple years, but I just moved and broke down and bought some from storeyourboard.com. I've been happy so far.
