Great Surfing Video Clip - Nate Tyler Shreds

As you know from my previous blog post I live in the Northeast (PA to be specific) so I haven't been surfing much of late but that doesn't stop me from living vicariously thorough video clips!

Came across this one while looking around on the Channel Island website. Great little clip with some nice aerial maneuvers.

Hyperlite New System Wakeboard Bindings - SWEET!

It is getting closer and closer to wakeboard season for those of us toughing it out in the Northeast.

I saw these new wakeboard bindings online and I just had to share. These new bindings look sick. Coming from a multi-board sport background it makes total sense to use these bindings instead of the plate type bindings that are the common type now. I won't bore you with my commentary, listen to the hyperlite pros. I am SOLD on the system, see what you think!

After you are done checking out the SYSTEM go ahead and check out our huge selection of Wakeboard Racks for a place to keep your wakeboard when you are not out riding on your new bindings.

Stand Up Paddle Board Racks / SUP Racks - Check It Out

Have you caught the bug with the hottest new board sport?  I am referring to Stand Up Paddle Boards (SUPs).  From my recent visits to the ocean and for that matter any body of water it seems like many have converted to SUPs. It has quickly become one of our category best sellers and understandably so - those SUPs are HUGE.  Without a dedicated storage rack made to properly store your SUP you are left ditching it somewhere in the house and with their size it is probably taking up a ton of room and if it is on the floor it is probably getting banged up.  With the $1000+ price tag on many SUPs I would say a storage rack is well justified to protect your investment and free up some space in your house.

Check out a few of our best-selling Stand Up Paddle Board Racks:
Overall I think Stand Up Paddle Boards are a nice spin on surfing with the added benefits of catching waves further out, still being enjoyable when the waves are small to non-existent and the ability to use on lakes and rivers along with in the ocean.

Ski Storage Rack - RACK FEATURE

Today I am going to spotlight on of our Best Selling Ski Storage Racks.  This is both a personal favorite and a customer favorite.  Since the winter season is winding down, now is the PERFECT time to get yourself a Ski Storage Rack!  Without one your skis will no where to call home.

This is probably my favorite ski rack. It is very functional but also looks killer. I know when I put my skis in they are securely stored until the next time I need them. This rack provides very easy access to your skis so they are ready for that next early morning powder run. And when I can't be shredding it on the slopes I like to see my collection of skis hanging on my wall.

This ski rack is made out of very high quality materials and it is quite evident when you pick up the rack. The rack was well engineered; it was not just put together by someone in their garage on a whim. Boardzup took their time and designed a quality rack made to store skis. This is a rack that you know will outlast your skis. There are not any parts of it that are cheap, flimsy, or liable to break. Everything is heavy duty and built for years of use.

Once you mount this ski rack to your wall it feels extremely solid and you know your skis will not be falling out of this rack. One nice feature you often might not ever consider or know about until it is installed is that the rack arms are built to extend far enough from the wall that the tails of the ski do not lean on your wall. This is especially nice when you skis are a bit wet. I also really like the neoprene grips that cushion the skis in the rack. It is really the perfect material that provides cushion so the skis don’t get scratched but it is also very substantial so it doesn’t give too much and pinch you skis too far up the shovel.

I like the modern look with the tubular aluminum, black grips, and ability to have the skis angled. This ability to angle your skis is both functional and aesthetically appealing.

I actually use this rack to store my skis at my home. It is very versatile and can accommodate a large variety of skis. Right now I have one pair Fischer Watea mid fats, one pair of Fischer Slalom Race skis, a pair of K2 telemark skis, and a pair of Salomon kid’s skis. As you can see it will pretty much hold any skis you want to store.

I will say it is not quite as obvious how to install this ski rack as some of our standard wood racks but included in the package are very detailed instructions with pictures to help you make sense of the rack. We have not had any customers complain because it was too hard to install, but it does help to read the instructions to make sure you mount it correctly the first time.

Do yourself a favor and get this ski rack to properly store your skis. Just wait until you have it installed, you will be kicking yourself for not getting one earlier.
We also just recently added another Awesome Feature with this rack.  You can buy extensions to it so you can store more skis.  You can go up to 10 Pairs of Skis!  Very cool if you have a lot of skis and a nice long wall to store and display all your skis.

If this doesn't seem to suit your interests than check out our Ski Wall Rack Page and find over 20 high quality unique ski storage racks.  There are ski racks for all price ranges and styles.


I hope this helped you better understand one of our best selling Ski Racks. Until Next Time...

Snowboard Wall Mounts - Why YOU Need One!

Sadly it is coming to the end of winter for many of us Snowboarders.  This is a great time to remember those great days out in the powder or in the park and get your last spring boarding days in for the season. 

The other thing you need to think about is where and how to store your snowboard for the off season.  The BEST way to do this is with a SNOWBOARD WALL MOUNT.

Snowboard Wall Mounts:
  • Store Your Snowboard off the Ground
    • Organize your Garage, Basement, House, or Closets
    • The more snowboards you have the more you NEED a Snowboard Wall Mount
  • Protect your Snowboard from Chips, Dings, Scrapes
    • Snowboards are much more protected in a wall rack than lying on the ground or resting against something only to fall over.
  • Display Your Snowboards! 
    • Why not showoff your snowboard? Let your sweet ride inspire you all year long.

Snowboard Wall Mount Examples:

Hang Time Snowboard Wall Rack                                   Snowboard Triple Storage Rack

Check out over 25 Snowboard Wall Mounts.  There is sure to be one to fit your needs and budget!

It is an easy thing to put off or forget about but well worth it once you have your rack installed and snowboards stored and displayed.  You won't know why you didn't get a snowboard rack sooner.  If you take a little time to understand your options and get a snowboard wall rack you will be able to properly and safely store your snowboard during the off season so it is ready to go next season.

Before I started I know most of my buddies used to just throw their snowboards in the garage, basement, or a closet only to find at the start of next season that their snowboard's edges were rusted and often times there were nicks and dings in their snowboard.  They would have to take their snowboards into the snowboard shop to get a costly tune up before they even use it next season.  Using a snowboard wall mount will help you organize and store your precious snowboarding gear.
    Another good tip for storing your snowboard over the off season is put on a thick coat of wax to protect your edges from rusting.  Keeping your snowboarding in a temperature controlled dry place will also greatly help in storing your snowboard.

    At we get this question a lot...what is the best wall mount for my snowboard?  The answer depends on what you are looking for.  We will cover this more in depth in a future blog post. Check back to find out more.
