Best Kayak Wall Racks

Wall racks are one of the most popular choices for storing your kayaks, canoes, or SUPs. Mounted either inside or outside and using a range of lightweight, but strong materials, like J-Cradles, mounting hardware, and straps, there are a number of great options to choose from.

Below is a list of some of the most popular kayak wall racks from brands like Sparehand Paddlesports, Malone, Suspenz, Seattle Sports, and more. For even more options, be sure to check out the full Kayak Wall Racks gear guide.

Fortunately, the paddling community has been testing, paddling, and reviewing wall racks and other storage options for over twenty years. By leveraging the reviews and experience that's been shared by thousands of your fellow paddlers, you can help narrow down the various wall rack options to find the best storage solution for you.

When a 17-year-old paddleboarder was swept out to sea, his survival depended on his cell phone and the voice on the other end of the line.
