Storing your SUP board is important to ensure that your board remains in good condition. There are several ways to store your board. Below we give you an overview of the different options.
Storage in the garage or shed
The most common way to store your SUP board is in the garage or shed. Make sure your board is properly anchored so that it cannot tip over or shift.
For example, you can secure your board with some sturdy ropes to a post, or you can attach it to the ceiling of the garage or shed.
Store in the garden
If you have a garden, it is also possible to store your board there. You can attach your SUP to a pole or fence, or you can store the board in a specially designed cabinet. Just make sure that the box is well covered and that your board is protected against the weather.

Store in height
There are various options for storing your SUP. For example, you can use two beams for it, where you can place the planks. In addition, there is also a horizontal SUP board rack where you can set up several SUPs without taking up space in your garage or shed.
If you want to give your SUPs a nice spot, you can also opt for a vertical rack. You hang the shelves on this as you would see them in a store. Several shelves can be hung on this rack at the same time. Each type of rack has its own advantages.
Store in a SUP Board trolley
If you transport your SUP board a lot, a SUP board trolley is a good option. The trolley is made of sturdy material and is equipped with sturdy wheels with which you can easily transport the board.
Many of these trolleys are also equipped with a handy locking system, which keeps your board firmly in the trolley when you transport it.
