Every now and then we get hit up by a company that isn’t exactly a part of the snowboard industry for a product review. While most get declined a few make it in. Nice Rack was one of those companies and Gary as he’s a proud home owner was able to install and try this thing out. Now I fully envision him hanging from it and doing pull ups to bad 80’s music in a Rocky inspired montage, but he probably just put boards on it. Either way here’s his review.
Purpose: Give you a place to hang your boards so that you are not cluttering up your dorm, bedroom, garage, basement, etc.
Features: Simplicity. I spent more time finding my tools to put these on the wall than I did installing the rack.
Pros: Easy set up, can handle a fair amount of boards, expandable, reasonably priced.
Cons: They leave holes in your wall if you have to take them down I guess.
Durability: They are made out of a seemingly durable plastic. I expect to get a decade and probably a lot more out of them.
Personal Thoughts: The racks come in a small enough package. Instructions are easy, find two studs (insert joke) and install one bracket on each stud. You have to mark off the height to set your brackets at. Screw them into the wall, add the arms and you’re done. I spent almost 10 minutes doing this. The brackets will interlock with another rack making expanding it super easy. I have three splitboards and two solid decks on the one rack and it could easily take more. My garage entry way is no longer cluttered with boards. Job well done Nice Rack.
What They Say: Use anywhere. Home, garage, bedroom, board shops, shaping rooms, merchandising displays, etc.
Surfboard rack and more!
Use as Snowboard Rack, Wakeboard Rack, or Kiteboard Rack, too!
Expandable surf rack system
Easily add extra surboard racks to your existing Nice Rack in a ‘snap’.
Surfboard wall racks
Nice Rack surf racks are made from high quality ABS Plastics and their unique two-piece design enables the wall mount to be securely fastened to the wall with direct access to the mounting screws.
The equipment support arm uses a structural ribbed and tapered design to maximize strength and stiffness and its connection system makes installation a “snap”. Protective foam adhesive tape covers both the wall mount and supporting arm to protect your surf, snow, wake, or kite board from scratches and dings.
Adding additional surfboard racks can be easily accomplished by simply linking additional wall mounts to the already installed system, leaving the number of surf racks that can be installed limited only by the height of the wall. Top and bottom wall mount end caps complete the installation and give the Nice Rack a finished look. Nice Rack can be used as a snowboard, wakeboard, or kiteboard storage rack too.
