I was looking for an easy way to hold my paddleboard of to the side of my boat but couldn’t believe how expensive the available options were. This Magma surf rack holder is nice and solid but $270? I figured I’d try to piece together a cheaper option and started looking for the bare pieces.

I found this Garage roof SUP holder piece for around $30 and figured it wouldn’t be hard to attach it to the stanchions on on the side of the boat.

Then I used two SeaDog rail clamps to connect the U-bend piece to the stanchions. The result was a solid paddleboard holder at a fraction of the price!
