  • Board clamps for fragile surf style boards

    Just installed these today. Best board clamps we have used for our SoulCraft surf boards. Fit, finish, and function are top notch. Our boards no longer ride on top of the Bimini. Highly recommended these MADE IN AMERICA clamps from Skylon for anyone riding the high-end boards. (If anyone knows how to properly orientate photos, please help me out, thanks)

    Hmmmmm. I like the idea of the vertical ones Larry had but was concerned about blind spots. Anybody want to split a pair?

      The vertical clamps fit the newer zft2 towers. These horizontals are made to fit the zft4 and 7 towers I believe.

        Board clamps for fragile surf style boards

        Nice. I like how those horizontals allow the flat bottom of the board to align with the widest part of the side forks, so top to bottom facing with 2 boards. The vertical Skylons would not allow 2 boards to fit the vertical bottom to bottom orientation because of the larger surf style fins and the side fork area was a pinch point on the Soulcraft rail profile which could easily cause glass damage.

        B&G do your horizontal Skylons bolt right up to the MC swivel arm?

        Below are the Skylon verticals, the best orientation for the side rails would be bottom to bottom boards facing to match the side (bottom angle), but the surf fins interfere forcing the boards to go top to top which pinches the board rail.

            ^Neil, that is slick. Even if mounted fin down height should be well taller than speakers. Keeps sunbake off the boards too.

              Moose, they do look slick. They are mounting in the bottom side of the tower, under the bimini. Looks to be a fairly decent design. The knuckle style mount looks like it will work with any angle of mounting. With my 07, I dont have many options for surf style boards that I like.

                Yes. They bolt directly to the swivel arms using the stock four bolts in the same pattern as the stock clamp.

                  More pics of the Skylon zft4 clamps

                  On water pics. Life jackets hang and drain into the lake. Also there is a short video on Instagram of my 6 year old granddaughter operating the clamp. @bee_boss_surf

                      Great product and the quality looks great. Out of my league though on cost.
