The catalog calls them wakeboard racks. Do they hold surf boards as well? Or, the Zup board? My surf board is much thicker than a wake board (and thicker than some surf boards). My Zup and surf boards both fit in my krypt surf rack, so they are standard size.

Are all 4 slots the same size or mix/match?

Tks. So probably a wake board slot and a surf board slot then. Same configuration on both sides? So, with 3-4 surf boards, they probably won’t all fit on the racks... I’m guessing. ??

Or, does your surf board fit in the smaller slot?

I’ve got a whole sheet of questions for the dealer after watching every video I could find (several times) and digesting info today after the show yesterday.

Tks!!

2 slots per side I'm pretty sure. One big, one small. Are you looking at a new model? If so, I thought I recall someone saying there were straps on the bimini to hold sups and surf boards??? Maybe I dreamed that though????

Well, I didn’t specifically look for that on the ‘19, but it didn’t jump out at me. Not sure how that would work, with that zippered sun roof.

Yeah not sure about that. They have the solar panel integrated into the bimini and the large sunroof.
