Storing surfboards properly is necessary to maintain their ideal condition, preserve the wax application and reduce the risk of damage. When living in an apartment or a home with limited space, finding the ideal space might become a challenge. A wall rack is an easy and inexpensive project that will organise and protect the boards.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Find and mark two studs in the wall that are approximately 4 feet apart. Use a level to verify the two points are level.

  2. 2

    Screw a ladder hook into the each of the points marked on the wall. Rotate the hook clockwise until it is secure with the hook facing up.

  3. 3

    Position and screw two eye hooks between the ladder hooks. One eye hook should be placed about 3 feet above the ladder hooks, the other, a few inches below the ladder hooks.

  4. 4

    Place a surfboard, fin side toward you and leaning toward the wall, on top of the ladder hooks.

  5. 5

    Secure the board on the hooks with a bungee cord. Attach the cord to the top eye hook, then across the board to the bottom eye hook.
