Garage Racks for Windsurfing

There's been some discussion on rec.windsurfing about the various ways to store and rack windsurfing equipment and a request from Windsurfing Magazine to share suggestions. I thought mine was pretty simple so I wanted to share it. I've had this same rack for close to 12 years in two different houses/garages and it's worked great (and low cost). They are simple hang racks with shelve pieces that fit into the hang rack slots. I bought them at Lowe's. I bolted the hang racks into the wall studs....three across the back garage wall. Then I can make several rows of "shelves" or "racks" with the shelve pieces slotted into the hang racks that I can lay my sails, masts, booms, and boards across. I wrap pipe foam insulation tubing around the shelve pieces for padding. Because there are many slot choices on the hang racks, I can change the rack curvature to match the rocker line of the boards so they lay across evenly. I also use this rack system for snow skis/poles and car roof racks when they're not in use. Here are some pictures that hopefully simplify my description:

Hi,

What is the length of the shelves you are using for the windsurfing boards? Will a 47cm shelf length be long enough for a 67cm wide board (the max shelf length I found is a 47cm)?


Thanks,
Zohar
