About our racks:

Our original design has made Goodboy the choice of top paddlers.

You may find copies, but Goodboy is the original article. Our racks are solid with over a decade and millions of real world miles behind them. They bolt on to any solid base rack with cross bars whether it be a Prius or Suburban. They will outlast your car, yourself and even your college loans.

They are all aluminum with stainless steel hardware.

No ferrous metals means no rust. No plastic  means no dry rot.  Although we offer powder coating to effect the black out look, our standard racks are not painted. No paint means no paint chips. We don’t weld them either, we bolt them together. No welds means no weld cracks. These are cave man simple.

Our Vbars load literally in seconds, leaving more time for collecting kilometers on the water.

Soft bungees hold your boat in place, while camstraps provide solid back up.  Your boat nestles and forms its own shape in quality closed cell foam that is a full 4 inches wide and one inch thick.

Since 2008 we have been producing racks…

Racks for Rowing shells, Outrigger canoes (and amas), Olympic k boats, Surfskis, Sea kayaks, SUPs, and of course Recreational kayaks. We are a family run company. Goodboy racks are made right here in the USA by fellow paddlers.  Our racks are made from recycled aluminum and are 100% recyclable.

Tell us what you have and we will set you up right.

We ship worldwide. Thanks for looking, Cliff Roach CFII, ATP, RN
