Ghost Racks was born when Shane Atkins bought a vintage 1980’s Mark Richards twin fin. Knowing this board deserved pride of place Shane collaborated with Darren Barnes, a fellow surfer and local Sunshine Coast plastics fabricator, to expertly design and craft some clear acrylic racks.

The brief was simple - these racks needed to be reliable, well designed and unobtrusive. It was never about the racks, it was about what they are displaying.

Validation from the National Surfing Museum of Australia and professional surfers Jamie O’Brien, Mark Richards, Rob Machado and Gary ‘Kong’ Elkerton - solidified their position in the market as the premium display rack of choice.​

Ghost Racks is the perfect way to display what surfing means to me.

Funny to be recommending something that I can’t see… My Pipe Masters 1989 winning board now sits in pride of place in my lounge room and it’s like it’s just floating there. I can see the pure outline of my board without the hindrance of seeing a bulky racking system. My board is in a ‘Wraith Rack’ – It’s minimal, sleek and the design is solid. It’s perfectly weighted so I know my board is secure and safe. If you are a collector or you just have a favourite board to display – I highly recommend getting your board in a Ghost Rack.

Ghost Racks – The perfect rack when you don’t want to see the rack! Well built and easy to install/assemble. I highly recommend these racks and consider them the best racks on the market.

We have set up a surfboard display in our microbrewery and found the Ghost Surfboard Racks are perfect. They look clean, professional, are of sturdy construction and don’t detract from the item on display. Shane was very helpful in ensuring we had the right components for our display.


I researched the market for a while for a surfboard rack which could display a board vertically. There were very few options and the options out there weren’t great. I finally found exactly what I was looking for. I purchased it, it was easy to install and displays the board really well. Shane was really helpful and would strongly recommend these to anyone wanting to display a board on the wall.


It has come up great. I will be recommending them to anyone who will listen, mate. They are awesome. I have even won over my wife with this.
