I'm in need of changing out my board racks on my tower. I have a Skylon Swoop on my Centurion Avalanche C4. Need a rack that holds a wakeboard and surf. Any recommendations? Thanks

Samson racks are really good for there price. I had them on my last boat and will probably get them again for my current boat since non of the clamping racks have bracket for my tower.

@Nick213 I had asked Fineline last year about adding racks to my SV244 since I have 2 but am able to have 4 total. I have the Aegis Tower (I don't remember if your tower is the Gladiator or Aegis)....but Fineline told me that Skylon had the mounts/brackets for both towers and you just gotta ask them on phone call since they don't list them all online. Skylon sent me brackets and wake/surf racks.

edit...I just realized you said clamping racks, mine are swivel and secures boards with the elastic band.

Thanks @InfinitySurf, but yeah I wanted to get either the PTM clamping racks or Roswell triton racks but can't find/get brackets that will work with them and my gladiator tower 😒

So since I had the Samson swivel racks on my avy and loved them (other then the aplastic bands) I figure I'll get them for my 244.

That sucks, I went with Skylon cause I was adding racks and Skylon made the OEM ones, only difference between old/new racks I got is the ones that came from factory say Centurion on them instead of Skylon.

The clamping racks are super nice but I just put my expensive boards in my Corson Piper racks mounted under tower, those are great for doing no damage but I was lucky enough to end up with a taller tower...and am only 5' 10" tall, so it works and I don't hit my head on them, lot of people would probably not like my setup cause they would hit their head on them.

I spent yesterday afternoon surfing with the Wake9 crew on Lake Norman. The are doing a 2 week trip from California to GA and then back. They had their new Supra SL which had 4 clamping racks, 2 on each side, they are super smooth to operate but oh so much money! We had 9 people on board and 9 boards (which all fit cause they also had the surf pockets) Wave was money on the SL and they were running the stock 3500lbs of sub-floor ballast plus 600lbs of lead, nothing else. Was actually very similar to my wave except I run more like 5k in ballast. We had a blast, actually rained for about an hour during the afternoon and we just surfed thru it till weather got nice again. Really nice people and glad I got an opportunity to ride the SL and meet them.

We'll I just called and no they don't make clamping board racks.

I know they had some on display at the boat show and said they would be available soon. The design must not have been good enough or not enough demand

      Just read your message regarding restoring your Barefoot Falcon.  I have a 1991 Barefoot Falcon with exact same floor issues.  I also had to replaced the stringers and am in the process of replacing the floor.  My question is regarding the need to replace the foam.  Like you I have several hundred pounds of saturated foam removed and I am not certain to replace it or leave it without foam.  Do you are anyone know if the foam is necessary for any structural support, or is it just for sound and flotation?

      Actually it has me thinking of adding something between the seat and fiberglass riser. It may even allow it to rotate?  Hmmmm

      I have been told you are the expert in setting up the S238 for a great wave. We have a 2106 s238 with the surf package, our dealer told us to fill up the boat and then use the tabs, but we have figured out the more tab we put in it the less push the wave has.
      How do we best set it up for the best wave with push? We surf regular, our friend surfs goofy and her side seems to always be great, but the regular side not so much.
      Would love to have your set up and any tips you could give. Thanks so much
