    I had good luck with the gun rack. But you definitely need to find studs for the installation. Also, while the cork on the arms is OK for the rails that make contact there, you also have to make sure any part of the board that's even near the wall is protected, especially the rail that rests against the wall. Board tended to slip and shift if I so much as walked past it.

    What ever you choose, the most important thing is making sure they are secured on the wall, into a stud... along with the foam as well

    and inexpensive clear 50# mono fishing line, like Berkley or similar, for a nose and tail security wrap tied off to the racks, and good to go..

    I have a wall rack that I will not be using, below is the web site. Mine is the 45 degree heavy duty, 3/8' acrylic. Includes all hardware. Price was $65 plus tax/ship, $50 to you.

    Just run a few lag bolts through the board’s stringer, into a wall stud :)

    I kid, I kid

    Funny: There’s a kids ride in OC NJ and they have a bunch of crap boards mounted to walls punched though them that way.

    Even though they’re all crap boards, it makes me cringe - it’s like some kind of taboo surfboard, crucifixion haunted house ride. The kids love it though.
