One of the biggest questions you may have when buying your first paddleboard is the issue of storage: "where on earth will I put a 10 foot (or longer) board?"
Some people opt to buy an inflatable paddleboard for this very reason - because it deflates to store compactly when not in use. But lack of space should not be a deciding factor in whether you
choose to get a rigid board, even if you live in a small place. SUP storage racks
make use of space you didn't even realize you had. There are so many different
kinds of paddle board racks that maximize the use of space, like SUP ceiling racks, freestanding SUP racks, outdoor SUP racks, and more.
It's that time of year to get your outdoor sports gear organized and ready to use. If you're lucky enough to have a storage option right at the water's edge, check out the outdoor dock, deck, pier and marina racks we've got for kayaks and paddleboards. These will save you the trips back and forth lugging your heavy boats around, saving you more strength for paddle strokes.
A key with outdoor storage racks is that they must be made of heavy duty materials, finished with an appropriate coating to hold up to outdoor exposure, and include installation and mounting hardware with the same weather proof resistance. Some of the best outdoor storage option materials are aluminum, powder coated steel, stainless steel, or galvanized steel. We rate most of our outdoor racks as freshwater storage (aluminum, powder coated steel) or saltwater storage (stainless steel, galvanized steel).
Paddleboards are tough enough to store and transport when you've got 1, let alone when you've got multiple SUPs to get to and from the water and store at home. New for 2016 is a product for anyone person or shop with a multi-SUP quiver: a 2 paddleboard cart, that quickly adjusts into a 2 SUP stand for indoor or outdoor use. And, if you just want the Cart or the Stand, you can get them separately, too.
