Earlier this year, we introduced several new products to the Australian StoreWALL range, one of these being the Angle Brackets. Speaking to a client this week, we had an enquiry about a Surfboard Wall Rack or Surfboard Wall Mount. What this person was essentially looking to do was hang their surfboard on the wall so that it was out of the way and not likely to be damaged in the garage.
Surfboards can vary in size based on your skill level, size/weight and generally what you prefer. Asking a few questions from this client, I came to understand that you can start with a board around the 5 foot mark (150cm) and extend all the way through to 9.5 foot (280cm+). In between you get a whole heap of variations. You can also add to this your typical kid style boogie boards which most Australian homes have several of.
Surfboard Wall Rack Options
Having a look online, there are plenty of options to choose from including single surfboard mounts through to mounts that can hold up to 4 boards. One actually allows you to start with 2 mounts and they add an additional two. Pricing varies significantly from $50 all the way through to $200. Much of this is based on the material that the mount is made from.
StoreWALL Surfboard Wall Racks
StoreWALL doesn’t sell a purpose built Surfboard Wall Rack but does offer its popular angle bracket. The StoreWALL Angle Bracket is ideal for any wide item like a surfboard or even kayak that needs to be removed from the floor and hung on the wall.
The Angle Bracket range comes in two sizes: The 245cm Bracket and the 381cm Bracket.
- Dimensions for the 254cm bracket are: 430mm (off the wall) x 50mm (width) x 300mm (height)
- Dimensions for the 381cm bracket are: 660mm (off the wall) x 50mm (width) x 450mm (height)
StoreWALL Angle Bracket
The great advantage of the StoreWALL Angle Bracket is that it can be used for so many different items around the home from lengths of wood, to skate boards, to surfboards and even Kayaks. StoreWALL can even handle weights of around 60KGs when installed with InstallStrips.
Not only do you get a very suitable solution with StoreWALL, you also get one that is versatile as your needs around sport surfing and the home change.
StoreWALL Angle Brackets are made from solid steel are powder coated and also come with soft padding to protect your surfboards.
With StoreWALL and the CamLok locking mechanism, your Angle Brackets can be moved around your garage as required. Unlike your traditional Surfboard Wall Mount which is permanently installed on your wall and can’t be adjusted once it’s on there.
What does it cost? The 254cm brackets is are around $60 each so about $120 for a pair. The 381cm angle brackets are around $70 each or $140 for a pair. This actually compares pretty well with many of the alternatives that you can find at surf stores around Australia.
