At the end of last season I finally decided to make a surf rack for my zeroflex tower. It worked out surprisingly well. The typical racks would not fit by board so I made one to fit on top of the tower, however it had to not interfere with the wakeboard rope. I now want to see if you have any recommendations on improving it. I am using some velcro straps now, but want to change that to rubber bungee style straps.

Any thoughts?

Looks good. What did you do for the clamps?

Make it padded?

And get a new crew? Doesn't look like they're having very much fun in that pic...

Just spit my Coke on the computer--that was funny.

x2 on the clamps? I'm 6'2" but it still looks like a reach getting that board up there. Do you have anything to swivel those around and down? Nice addition though for extra storage.

Thanks for the input guys

I had the clamps cut out of aluminum.
Yes padding it is a great idea.... I'll look into that.
humm... swivel, that will take some effort, but worth looking into. I'm about 6 feet, and if I stand on the seat I can reach the board pretty easily.

:) crew was sad and exhausted that day as we were leaving Lake Powell after an awesome week.

Alright--if those are "last day of vacation" faces, I completely understand.

I like the surf rack. No interference with the rope at all? The ski rack is also interesting. Any drawbacks to having the skis down there?. You are definitely set up to carry all of the necessary tools.

Soooter, No interference with the rope at all. My first attempt at making the rack I completely forgot about the rope for wakeboarding (duh), so then I added the extension. I was worried about wind noise with it set up like this, but luckily it's not an issue.
As for the skis, its a little bit of a pain to get the ski's on and off, but a lot better than leaving them on the floor....my friends all have their own skis so we always have at least 3-4 skis to carry.
