    Wakesurf Board Rack


    Setter
    • Year: 2012 Brand: Malibu Model / Trim: 23LSV Cost: $0-$249 DIY or Professional Install: I installed it

    I decided I wanted a double surf board rack. I wanted to use the factory bracket and didn't want to drop a huge amount of money into the project. I ordered a Krypt Towers - Double Wakesurf/Surfboard Tower Rack for $130.00 off Amazon. I matched the angle of the straight edge on the back side of the forks and it worked out really well. Eventually I may do a little modifying to make it look closer to stock. First picture shows one old and one new rack. Second is both new racks installed.

    I might be copying you on this.   We usually only bring one wakeboard, so thought about swapping one of the combo racks for duals as well.  How would you make it look stock?  I guess I don't see much difference so I don't see a problem.    Looks good!   Price is right.  Only part I don't see is the hook for the bungee.   Thanks for sharing.

    Still working on the hook. All of my boards are at the cabin so I'm not sure on hook position. It might end up being attached to the lower of the two factory brackets. Probably just find a nice looking SS or aluminum hook and bolt it on.

    I was thinking about cutting the backside (where the unused mounting holes are) into the curve to match the stock ones.

    Great job Setter. I did a similar conversion last year with Samson fingers I got off Craigslist. I had to drill new holes on the factory MB plate but all in all not that bad. Luckily the Samson fingers have a hook already at the base of the fingers. They look factory and work great. I swapped the wakeboard fingers on the other side to match only because they were part of the deal. (And because I’m anal like that. lol)

    Nice mod. I use that krypt rack on my boat as well, for what it's worth, my wakeboards are more stable on it then the other cheap wakeboard specific rack I got. I'll probably end up replacing the board rack for another surf rack.  

     

    Nice project
