I am sure you already know, there’s a skateboard rack for just about any need, whether your looking for a way to display and store your “daily driver”, or you have a collection of multiple skateboards. Not sure what you need? Let’s run through some of the more important considerations you need to consider so you can make the right decion for yourself.
The simple question is, how many boards do you own now? How many do you think you will own within the next three years? If you own three boards now, and you don’t see yourself investing in any more boards in the next three years or so, your decison is easy. Buy a 3 skateboard storage rack.
Capacity is the most important consideration whey buying a skateboard rack. Does the skateboard rack you are buying have enough capacity for your needs now and say three years in the future? Alternatively, should you purchase a rack with more capacity than the number of boards you currently own?
If you only have a single board, and anticipate buying another in the future, it might be wise to buy a three-board rack so you can store at least two boards, plus your riding gear. However, it might not make much sense to purchase a six-board rack if you only ever expect to own two skateboards. If you are a beginning skateboarder you have one board that you love, and you are just looking for a cool way to display it in your room, respect!
You will find the skatebaord display you are looking for, so keep reading.
The material you choose is also very important if you want to match the deocr of the room where the skateboards will be displayed. Each type of material can create a different look & features. Plastic displays usually cost less, and can be very durable. Wood is hard to beat as far as sytle goes, and metal can be both modern and incredibly strong. Each option brings a different look, so go with what speaks to you. Perhaps the best option is to try to match the existing surrounding aesthetic of the room. Honestly when I bought my first skateboard storage board it was the highlight of my bedroom. Honestly before I invested in the display there was not much going on in the way of an existing style in my bedroom. However my six board display became the talk of the neighborhood, and ever kid in my school ended up seeing a picture of the cool skateboard display I had in my bedroom. So plan accordingly and let the creativity flow.
How does the system mount? Is it wall mountable only? Can it only be mounted to the floor? What about limitations in your space itself – can you not locate a stud? Are you prohibited from mounting something to the wall if you rent? Do you have the floor space available? These are just a few of the considerations you’ll need to make when it comes to mount type. My friends dad had a stud finder that I borrowed so the entire mounting process was not as difficult as I thought it might be. I just followed the simple instruction and had my display mounted and displaying my boards in less than two hours. My buddy and I did mine one morning after Christmas break. I got my first six board display for Christmas several years ago.
While all of the racks we’ve listed below can be used with just about any type of skateboard, that’s not true for all racks. Some are board style specific, meaning that if it is designed for shortboards, you cannot use it to store a longboard, and vice versa. My friend at the skatepark, Allie made this mistake. Make sure that you buy a rack that fits your board collection and the types of boards you plan on adding in the future.
