My 2020 212S is in! But I foolishly didn't order it with the rack for some reason, now I'm going to add one. Better to order from the dealer or someone else? Is there a better rack out there? I like Yamaha's swivel feature. Opinions needed!

@anmut if you plan to do any surfing in addition to wakeboarding you will want the combination wakeboard/wakesurf rack. Xtreme Tower Products (aka Monster Tower) supplies the OEM ones for the 212x and 242x. You can ask your dealer if they can get their hands on them or many others have been able to get them thru Monster Tower directly. They also swivel like the wakeboard racks and the quality is great. I think the one they list on their site is a different diameter than the OEM that fit the Yamaha towers, you may need to call to ensure you get the correct fit.

Read this thread for more info from @swatski:

Here's the listing on Monster Tower's site:

I've been happy with my Monster rack on my AR195 so far.

I use the monster tower wakeboard rack with the 2 3/8” swivel adapter. I bought it with one slot for a surfboard and another for a wakeboard.

Can you provide the model number/size?

I have this one with the universal inserts. I'll probably buy the swivel upgrade for it this year but happy with it without it so far. I will buying a second rack as well.

Thats good to hear. Do you know if the fingers of Monster would fit directly into the OEM swivel. I was wondering if the bolt alignment was standard

I don't. I bought the rack with the quick release mount.
