They're here! They're here!.

Rado Racks that is.  Born in the mountains of Colorado.  Constructed of Baltic Birch Wood and fresh mountain air ( along with some solid labor of course).  These racks are hands down, one of our favorite new additions to the store.

The racks are also super functional.  They're designed to fit virtually anything you can think of: Surfboards, Snowboards, Skateboards, Longboards, Skis, and they're rumored to be coming out with a Beast of a SUP rack in early 2015.  If you're on the fence about your next rack, we strongly recommend you check out their Baltic Surf Rack (seen below)

The Above images come from our customer and friend, Kevin Clairmont.  Kevin bought the Moose Rack Board Pro, SUP Rack for his racing Stand Up Paddle Board. He required a rack that was sturdy and allowed for generous depth due tot he size of his board.  Here's what else Kevin had to say about the rack:

"Having a degree in architectural design, I have a genuine appreciation for things which are well designed and built with quality in mind, thank you again for such a well designed product"

You can find the Moose Rack Board Pro on our site.  Make sure to check out our other SUP Racks and Surfboard Racks as well.

Top 3 Surf Destinations of 2014

Surf Destinations of 2014

Most of our readers are always anxious to load up their surfboard racks in search of that next perfect wave, and this year’s top surfing hot spots might surprise you.  Those who love to travel and experience new adventures know that Hawaii never disappoints, while beaches in Morocco and Puerto Rico are also getting a lot of attention this year.  So grab your surfboard bag, hop on the plane, and head to these top 3 surf destinations of 2014.

 

Peahi, Hawaii

This tropical location is actually considered one of the most dangerous surf spots on the planet, sitting just off of the North Shore of Maui underneath towering, imposing cliffs that meets some of the most powerful waves imaginable.  Peahi is not for the faint of heart.  Its name means “beckon” in Hawaiian, and the locals have actually nicknamed this area “Jaws”.  The only thing ending the liquid avalanche of water is a massive 300 craggy cliff, so this is not the site for the beginning weekend surfer. 

But for the less experienced, head down to a little town called Paia.  This is a beautiful beach location where the reef breaks enough to provide enjoyment for surfers of all levels.  Just be sure to get up early to beat the high winds. 

Playa Higuero, Puerto Rico

This beautiful beach has been home to many world class surfing competitions in past years, located near a town called Rincon, nicknamed “Pueblo del Surfing”.  Rincon is the perfect tropical paradise to disappear to during the winter. From November to April, you can easily catch rough, 16 foot high waves almost every morning. 

While the surf is too rough for swimming, many vacationers simply enjoy sitting on the beach and watching the real professionals hone their surfing skills.  Aspiring surf pros also load up their surfboard bags and take in the sites at Playa Higuero, considering it a type of seaside “surfing classroom” where such expert professionals such as Laird Hamilton and Mick Fanning have been known to show up completely without warning.

Anchor Point, Morocco

Anchor Point is located in the Agadir region of Morocco in an area names Taghazout.  Swells reach 15 feet high and go as long as 500 m.  The clean lines of this beach give it a 1960’s inspired vibe, boasting three different sections where surfers can enjoy cover ups, right hands, and hollows.  Travel to Morocco between September and April for the biggest waves that are often the result of the North Atlantic Sea Storms that always occur during this time of the year.

The pros also like to head to this Moroccan location because it is easily accessible with waves that break over sand and flat rock providing terrific point breaks.  Traveling to Anchor Point is much easier than you might imagine because it is actually located very close to Europe, cutting travel time and expenses considerably.  So the next time that you are looking to grab your board off of the surf rack for a new high thrills surf spot where the cost of living is cheap, Anchor Point is worth a second look.
