Rack for Illusion Tower

Recommended Posts

AbFlyFish

I need to get a new rack for my Illusion Tower to hold my surfboard. The racks I have are not deep enough. Where is a good place to buy online?

Thanks.

I store my surfboards up under the bimini with soft surfboard car racks.

They wrap around (not all the way around the front) the tower and velco closed (you will need some more velcro for the front). Has a great little system to tighten them up.

Works great and is way less expensive than metal racks!! It holds both my boards.

The only thing I wished were different is the foam wrap is vinyl and sticks to the boards, it would be better as a towel/terry material.

I did have to add some velcro around the front pad.

That is a cool idea. Never even thought about that. Beats a $300+ rack.

WakeChick3, love the idea, might end up with a surf board and a kneeboard up there. Can you still rollup the bimini with the board up there?

I don't see why not, since the bimini is all above the tower. I have not tried, we keep the bimini up all the time unless we are going on a long haul.
