Went ahead and got myself an early Christmas present. Very pleased with these new surf forks for the 2013 Skylon racks. They look great, solid as can be and easily hold our thickest boards. Haven't yet decided on another set for the starboard side. Might keep OEM forks for skim style boards and wakeboards.

Yes they are pretty sweet, I really liked them on the Mojo i was in. It had the spinning and fixed. The spinning had a surf rack on top and wake board on the bottom. The fixed mount was 2 surf racks.

I don't think so, but I could be wrong. I can take pics & measurements of the bolt pattern, but I do know there are 3 holding each fork on.

If you have the Star One swivel racks (ie 2012 OEM racks), I say take them back to your dealer. IMO, the Skylon racks are much nicer.

Not sure about that. You spent enough coin with your dealer, so just tell them you want the Skylon ones. :)

It will make me feel better. Yes, blame it on someone in the next pew over...


Measurements would be nice but , but I need a 4" fork, for the kneeboarding, and my Inland Surfer, 2 1/2 won't fit.

I didn't order the factory racks for my boat. skylon are much better quality and cheaper(although that's all relative). I got double-surf on each side. holds the surf-style perfectly..

Joe,

Yes, they come into the boat and that bolt pattern looks similar. We left the lake earlier today, so I can get measurements next weekend or maybe somebody that has a 2013 with the Skylon racks (cough, moombadaze, cough) could help you out.

My boat is in storage and wanted to see if the skylon racks would fit the bolt pattern of the menace spinning base, but that means you need both of them to get measurements.

Daze, maybe a pic of the backside of the skylon rack and mounts, fork screws and the base to the swivel mount screws.

Thanks,

Joe
