We were recently contacted by the German Architectural firm Prof. Moths Architekten wanting to include a custom number of board racks in their specifications for a new retail centre.
Hase Wave L+T Osnabrück wanted a way for land-locked surfers in the heart of Germany to be able to get the best customer experience possible when shopping for a new board. The solution? Install a wave pool outside your favourite surf shop!
We absolutely love this idea! Imagine heading out to your local shopping centre and to look at some new boards and be able to take multiple boards out for a quick burn? You can also book in 45 minute sessions for 29 Euros or get multiple passes. Below is a photo of the grand opening with our surfboard racks in the background ready to go!
We are blessed in Australia with many beautiful beaches, however can see this being enjoyed by those wanting to test a few boards out at a time or those that live a little further away from surf.
See link below to a longer version on YouTube. Make sure to keep an keen eye out for our board racks in the background. Super proud to be included in this project. Big thank you also to Marise for sending us the images and video link!
Massive thanks to Pat from California for these pics - he received his new surfboard rack last month!
Check out 'El jefe' in it's new home complementing Pat's wicked style set up.

A big "GRACIAS" to another of our happy customers who sent in this photo of their new surfboard display rack system showing off their collection of vintage single-fin surfboards.
Wanting to span a collection of 20+ boards in various spaces around a single room, using a traditional wall-mounted or a fixed length freestanding surf rack was never an option. As this was a collection of classic surf boards, aesthetics were also a high priority. The Cactus rack was a perfect solution as it allowed the boards to be separated and stored vertically into various positions around the room. The added bonus of this system is that they can always be changed again in the future if needed using only a single Allen key.
Needless to say, all parties are stoked with the results. We are VERY jealous of this amazing vintage board collection, but happy to be able to help out by showing it off!
Packing up the car late on Friday afternoon, we heading on our mission up to Seal rocks to join the party for the first World Surf camp! First thing we thought of when we arrived is that we couldn't believe we had never been here before! Having surfed many times just further up the road, we had never made that 'detour' to check out the area.
Saturday was where all the action was! our early session was a battle against lumpy junky morning sickness, but the team pushed on! After our morning surf, relaxing yoga session and an nice brekky with coffee, everyone slowly wandered down to the beach to setup for the day. We joined the crew in the Coastalwatch/World surf tents making our racks available available to use. There were good vibes and BOARDS everywhere! in all colours, shapes and sizes with the two top fin system companies to match. A few of the crew even had a quick session with some hand planes. The surf cleaned up at around 3-4pm in the afternoon and everyone headed for the shore breakers to snap up the barrels on offer!
We are super excited and so proud to be included in this months issue of Real Living magazine. Such a beautiful image to capture the essence our aesthetic and how the Cactus rack can turn any room into something a little less ordinary!
Here are a couple of pics from our recent photoshoot showing off our freestanding surfboard rack in all its glory! Catrina our two board rack. Here you can see the meticulous detail and craftsmanship of our product as well as the beautiful finish of the Bamboo ply.
