Hey gang,

Just bought a used endless wave surf rack but the clamps they come with are too small for my tower. So I was wondering if anyone might have a pair that they are not using and are looking to sell. FYI, below is what I am looking for. They sell for $33 each at diywake.com and I was hoping to find them a little cheaper.

Looking forward to using this rack. Looks like a good solution for my growing wakesurf board quiver!

This is what the rack looks like except mine is silver and is a dual clamp design.

dealer here has a ton, but they are pricing them at $55. I would guess that the $33 is a good price for mail order.

Is that the same size clamp needed for an '05 LS Tower?

Yes, apparently, they went out of business. Too bad as it seems like a good idea. We'll see once I get a chance to use it.

I have a couple of clamps in my garage, I'm not sure what the size is, I'll have to go measure and get back to ya.

Thanks guys. Please let me know what size they are once you'd had a chance to measure. And how much you want for them.

Al,

I just checked and they are 2-1/2 ish. If you just want to swap that will work for me. I will be up in Tigard on the 29th will you be around town?

No, I think the '05's had a smaller diameter tower.

Just wanted to give props to Jester who traded me his 2-1/2" clamps for my smaller clamps. He even came to my house to deliver them personally. What a guy! And while he was here, he did the mandatory annual safety inspection on my boat (he volunteers with the coast guard) and gave me the annual sticker so the lake patrol won't need to stop me to do it.

Thanks again Jester! I'll post up some pics of the rack tomorrow once I get out on the water and can take some good pics.

Thanks for sharing this Al and thanks Jester for being the guy who deserves having the story told. Love it when you guys help each other out.

You know Moombadaze gave me his tower mirror arm for my new LSV and never asked for a thing in return. Every time I look in my mirror I see my own head and usually kids having fun behind the boat, but when I look at what's holding that mirror I see Stacy. Thanks again, bro!
