Wakesurf racks for New Dimension Tower

Help! We put a new New Dimensions tower on our 2007 MariStar 230 last fall. We have one wakeboard rack, but our Ronix wakesurf boards are too thick. ND does not currently make a wakesurf board rack. Any tips for another vendor that would make a rack that would mount on the ND tower? Thanks much.

Not sure if this helps, but instead of using the racks, I put a 6'x6' cargo net that I purchased off Amazon on top of my bimini and just put the wakesurf board under that. Much more secure and I don't have to worry about the nightmares where the boards have fallen out of the racks before almost hitting passengers or being lost in the water due to rough seas.

Cheers!
Mike

Thanks Mike. How do you secure the cargo net to the Bimini?

Do you have any pictures of the net on?

I called Wayne yesterday to find out the tubing size because I'm wanting to add a rack for my surf board too. It's 1 7/8".

I can get you pics this weekend. Clips are large and clip around the bimini frame. I anchored the two clips in the back rear corner to the tower sway brace and two aft middle clips around the bimini to tower strap. It'll make more sense when I snap pics, but super happy with the cheap and secure result.

Here's the one I purchased based off another TT member's recommendation:

Fannin-If you chatted with Wayne yesterday, that must mean that there are still not making surf racks. I haven't had any luck with them returning my calls.

I like the cargo net idea. My problem is that the bimini isn't always or on our boat. Be nice to find a rack that'll fit my boards.
