Anyone out there no of any surf racks out there that will fit the oval tower crossbars like the stock wake racks? Any racks that you particularly like?

Does anyone have these on there tower? I was wondering if you can fit 2 wakeboards and then a surfboard in this rack on the same side?

Sweet - that is exactly what I'm looking for as well. Thanks Frank.

jeffrogge, that seems like it would be too tight of a fit unless you have a really thin WB and surf... I'm thinking you'd be crushing them to fit!

Sorry I didn't write that very well. I mean does anyone know if you can put a wakeboard in each slot of the standard wakeboard racks that come with the tower and then add this rack to the other horizontal bar on the tower and fit a surfboard in it without the bindings from the wakeboard causing an issue?

Oh I gotcha - I have three horizontal bars on mine, my wakeboard racks being on the middle one. From the middle to the top bar is 14.5" center to center and from the middle bar to the bottom bar is 17" center to center.

I think that would be plenty of room for bindings to fit, staggering them a little if you have to.

My preference would be to mount this up high and out of my line-of-site but that top bar is much shorter and since the surf is longer than the wakeboard that may not work too well. I may just swap and mount it on the mid bar and put the factory wakeboard rack up high with one of the smaller kids boards up there and call it good.

I bought the racks suggested by Frank Smith. They were shipped promptly and were of pretty good quality. The only problem was that the surf board did not fit. The bigger slot in the rack is not quite 2" and I knew it would be close. I have a Grindwater fiberglass board and it is too thick to fit in the rack. I guess I am on to plan B.

How about the kneeboard rack?

Which Grind Water board do you have and how do you like it?

I bought racks from wake pro on eBay, they are combo racks
that hold two wake boards and one knee board! I'm having issues
with the clamps. Does anyone know what size clamps I need to fit
the rad-a-cage tower on my 04 outback! The circumfrence is 5.5 inches

That's very similar to what what I use for surfboards.

I'd grab those real quick - I paid $90 for my pair and they didn't come with the c-clamps or bungee

hey ed wouldn't these be too big and have too much slop for a surfboard?

those ones on the ebay page look nice, but the surf rack says it will fit 1 13/16" wide boards..

will this fit an Inland Surfer Red Woody?
