Product Description

stand-up-paddle-board-roof-rack-double-with-board.jpgThe SUP Car Rack is the perfect option for people who have a car, truck, or SUV without a built-in roof rack. This rack is an easy, removable solution for your SUP travelling needs! Designed to accommodate up to two SUPs or longboards, you can rest assured your toys will be safely and securely held in position as you cruise to your favorite surf spot. 

The SUP Car Rack works through a combination of straps, pads, and buckles. The aerodynamic, extra-high EVA foam pads provide a soft cozy bed that your boards will rest against and they provide a barrier between your board and your car. The strap system is UV treated and tested so it’s designed to withstand the beating sun and abuse you dish out on the way to the beach. Holding everything together is the rust-proof, metal cam buckle that strongly grips the strap system preventing any unwanted slack in the strap system. The buckle system also comes enclosed in a neoprene enclosure to help keep your SUP ding and dent free! 

There are two great features about this rack. First, you don’t need an existing car rack in place for this rack to work! (In fact, this rack will not work if you already have a built-in car rack). This is especially great for the car-owning population, because unlike SUVs or trucks, cars are less likely to come with a built in roof rack. The second great feature is that this rack is quickly removable! Whether it’s the off season or just the end of the weekend, you can readily install and uninstall the rack to meet your needs. This is a great way to help your car’s gas mileage when not in use!

  • Rack pads:
    • Length: 33 inches
    • Width: 3.5 inches
    • Height: 2 inches
  • Top straps (which secure around your board):  60 inches in length, total
  • Bottom straps (which secure under/around your car roof:  92 inches in length, total
  • NOTE: Colors may vary (the rack is Black overall, but the lining/branding may be Blue or Black)
Great car rack.

I'm 5'4" and drive a Kia Soul. I can easily get this on my car by myself (stepping up on the door-wells to do so) and then get my board onto the rack and strapped down. It's a great system and feels very solid and like it's not going anywhere once you get it on. Would recommend.

I just received this soft rack today. I will be testing it out this Weeknd... I drive a 99 Honda Civic Hatchback. I put one strap inside driver and passenger doors and the other I open up the hatch and wrap it out around hinges.. I'm careful not to cut the straps on the hinges... I have been doing it this way for years.. no problems at all...I needed a new rack since my old one is already 10 years and counting all the way to Baja and back to L.A. With they old rack.... Having a Hatchback makes it difficult to transport SUP or Longboard... My short board fits anywhere. But this is good rack quality wise... If anything changes with my testing this Weeknd I will change this review.

I love this. It's easy to put on, easy to take off, easy to adjust. It's light, holds SUP boards and my big surf board. I chose this as an option to the more permanent ones because $200+ isn't in my budget for that and this one came through for me.

It's perfect! And easy to attach

I'm very impressed with everything about this! The price, the workmanship, the ease of installation, and the look! Seriously, this is the way to do it, no bulky roof rack to deal with, and this has a lower profile than a roof rack anyway, and it can be removed. I was offered no incentive for this review, I don't know this company other than my purchase, I just like when things are done well so I wanted to give my opinion.

I recently bought this SUP car rack because my wife's board is really light and our car is small. I felt I didn't need a huge expensive rack. Anyway, It was a bit of a chore to get this strapped to the car, but I didn't realize that I will NEVER use it because the strap that passes through the car is in the way of my HEAD. I cannot stand to drive with this thing in the way. I am 5'7". My wife is 5'1" and doesn't mind the strap passing over her head. So, if you are considering purchasing this item you need a LOT of headroom for the strap or you need to be about 5'1" or shorter if your car is small like ours (Ford Focus). Once on I felt that the rack is fairly stable, but I drove behind and next to my wife (who had the rack on the car) and it wasn't moving around. She never drove over 50mph though. If you're on the highway you're on your own.
Good luck. You get what you pay for. The price point is right for many people.

A bit shaky...operator error? LOL

I am new to the world of SUP and have no roof rack on my SUV so I bought this. First time out this weekend with only 1 board (normally will have 2) and though I thought it was very secure when I loaded it I felt that the straps loosen a bit in the wind of the road and the board bounced up and down some (again wind) which made me a bit nervous. Maybe this is how it goes but I bought more tie downs with ratchets to ensure I can make it as tight as can be. Directions didn't state how far up the board should be so that might have been an issue as well.

I have used the soft rack to transport my 11 foot SUP board on my 2013 hyundai elantra a few times. If I drove more than 40 MPH the board shook violently. The second transport, I used a rope for additional security. I was able to drive about 50 MPH. It is a nice rack for short distances.

I recently took up the hobby of paddle boarding and purchased a rack system that was awful and did not work. After some further research, I found the removable software rack and bam! I installed pads on roof of my Honda civic 4door and I was out getting my SUP on in 30 minutes. Great product and does what it says it does. Thank you Store Your Board.

Living in Idaho where the season is pretty short, we were looking for a way to transport our SUP without going to the expense of purchasing a permanent rack that we wouldn't use year round. The removable universal rack has done the job.
They're truly universal. We installed with one tie down through the door and window of my Chevy truck and the other through the windows on the fiberglass shell.
I wasn't sure if they'd fit before we ordered, but they're perfect. No concerns at all. The only reason I didn't give a 5 is because I worry slightly about durability, but that is yet to be seen.
Highly recommended.

The downside is that I have two 34in wide boards and when using the foam spacer block, the straps are literally just long enough. There is only an inch of extra strap. I wouldn't suggest this if you are using two wide boards but would be perfect for a single board.

Great economical option

This SUP car rack is sturdy and does the trick for two boards for me on a small car (Nissan Versa 5-door). I use the foam space blocks for friction between the boards. In heavy rain, the straps will absorb water and carry it into the car - but it's easy just to remove the racks when it's raining. StoreYourBoard.com was great with customer service.

Was very pleased with the end result! Worked like a charm. However the instructions were a tad vague and more visuals would have helped. Being a novice a few more clues would have helped. Like fin up or down and in back or front of vehicle? You should also warn that a little bit of vibration is ok? Overall, the best and least expensive apparatus for the job!!

For short distance board hauling, you can't beat the price! My board is safe and sound, riding on the roof of my Passat. The 90 inch spread puts the strap right near my head while driving, and that is the only reason I suggest this for shorter distances...others might not care. Great product, and a great price.

I just needed a rack to take my SUP to my local break. It is only 10 minutes away but with my SUP being so big It was really hard to get it there, I had it hanging way out the back of my SUV a couple times, I know not very safe. So I saw this and it works great. Easy to strap onto my car and easy to take off. Holds my SUP very securely. Also much cheaper than most SUP roof racks that I saw.

5 25
Q:
Does this rack come with the straps that tie the SUP down to it as well?
A:
The straps that tie down your SUP are built right into this soft car rack system, so they are included.
Q:
I have a 2012 GMC conversion van with a high top roof. On both sides of the roof their is a rain guard. Will the straps connect to the rain diverter (gutter)?
A:
This removable SUP car rack will not work for cars/trucks/vans with gutters.
Q:
Will this fit on a standard golf cart roof?
A:
This SUP car rack is not recommended for use on a golf cart.
Q:
I have a 2012 Kia Sorrento....will this work?
A:
Yes this SUP rack will work well for your Kia Sorrento. One thing to keep in mind, if you have a factory roof rack this is not recommended because the straps won't lie flat on your roof and it is hard to get them tight. Check out one of our other SUP Roof Racks if this is the case.
Q:
Can I use this paddleboard roof rack on a 2-door car?
A:
No, unfortunately this rack is not designed to work with a 2-door car. The issue that arises with a 2-door car is that the pads don't get spread out enough to properly hold your SUP. With a 2-door car, the most you could get the pads spaced apart is 1 or 2 ft. Most SUPs are 9ft or longer, so the issue is that you are trying to support a 9ft board on 2 pads that are only spaced apart ~2ft. The further you can space apart the rack pads, the more stable and safe transporting your SUP will be.

Now, in certain cases you may be able to get this rack to work with a 2-door car. For instance, if your back windows roll down and it allows you to run the straps through them. Then you may be able to space out the pads enough that it is safe for transport. If this is the case, we definitely recommend tying down the nose of your board with some type of bow rigging. Also, in this case we only recommend using the rack with one SUP, not two. Unless you're a hands-on savvy kind of person and know how to make this safe, we don't recommend using this rack on a 2-door car.
Q:
What are the advantages of a removable soft rack versus an inflatable SUP roof rack?
A:
An advantage of this type of soft, removable SUP car rack is that the straps are integrated in the rack. On the inflatable one, it comes with separate straps.

An advantage of the inflatable SUP roof rack is that it can be deflated, and then packed up and stored in a smaller place in your car or at home.
Q:
Does this SUP car rack fit a 2011 Cadillac CTS 4? It's a four door sedan with a moon roof.
A:
Yes, it should fit your car fine, but you won't be able to use the moon roof when you are using the removable rack. Also, for your car, we would recommend additional front and back tie-downs to further secure your board while using this rack.
Q:
I have a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder with a Naked Roof (No Roof Racks). Will this work with it? We are getting ready for a 12 hr Vacation Drive up north.
A:
This removable SUP rack will work for your car, but for that long of a road trip, we would recommend using front and back tie downs to further secure your board.
Q:
What is the suggested/ maximum speed this product has been designed and tested for? Also, what is the feasibility of carrying 2 paddle boards?
A:
This removable car rack for SUPS does not have a suggested/maximum speed specification available from the manufacturer. It will hold up to 2 SUPs, but we would recommend spacers for transporting two boards. They are expansion blocks meant to be used with SUP roof racks that use tie down straps like this one, and provide just the right amount of space and cushion necessary to stack two SUPs on top of each other for transport.
Q:
Would I be able to use this rack to transport a kayak short distances?
A:
We wouldn't recommend the removable SUP car rack for transporting your kayak.

Instead, we would suggest a universal/removable soft kayak rack, that has specially-shaped foam blocks to fit a kayak, and includes tie-downs for the bow and stern. It comes in a standard or a deluxe version, with more of the larger pads and more tie-downs & straps included in the deluxe version (both seen at the same link). The standard package is good for a smaller kayak, or if you mainly traveling shorter distances.

We also have some other kayak vehicle rack options here.
Q:
I am looking into purchasing a rack to hold a SUP. I have a 2013 four door honda civic. I was looking at this universal removable SUP rack, and just wanted to make sure that it would fit my car, and if I needed to purchase any accessories to go with it. I am new to this so any guidance is appreciated.
A:
The universal, removable rack for stand up paddle boards works for cars that do not have roof racks already -- so if you did have crossbars or a roof rack already, it would not work. However, it should work fine for your four door Honda Civic, if you do not have the bars/rack. The straps run through all four windows, front and back.

We often suggest front and back tie-downs for SUPs to go with the rack, since SUPs are rather large, and that will give you additional security for your board, its especially recommended for when traveling longer distances. You can see those here.
Q:
Will this work with a 2011 KIA Sportage? It has side rails, but not a rack.
A:
This removable rack will not work with a car that has side rails that lack holes in them - so if the side rails on your Sportage are without holes or gaps, the straps for this rack couldn't sit flush against the car's roof, and your SUP wouldn't be situated right. But if your side rails have through-holes in them, then you could run the straps through those holes and it would work fine.

Q:
Will this rack work on a Toyota Prius?
A:
This SUP rack would work on your Prius if it does not have any pre-existing roof rack on it. It runs through front and back doors, so one thing to be aware of, is that on smaller 4 door cars, and longer distance trips (also for larger boards), you might want to consider front and back tie downs for additional stability.
Q:
Will this work on a Jeep YJ 2 door with removable bikini tops?
A:
Our Removable SUP car rack is not designed to work with 2 door vehicles of any type.
Q:
I have an 11ft SUP. My vehicle is a jeep wrangler 2 door soft top. Will this product work for me?
A:
Our removable SUP rack will not work for your Jeep, because the straps you use to attach the rack to your vehicle require 4 doors. They don't work properly for a car or truck with only 2 doors.
Q:
Is this a safe and sturdy way to transport a sup or two for long distance trips that will involve a lot of interstate driving?
A:
Our removable SUP rack is a solid transportation rack, but it may not feel as secure as certain racks that attach to crossbars, especially traveling across the country. You might want to consider using SUP nose and tail tie-downs for additional stability. Or for considerably long distance trips, you might want to consider removable crossbars, such as these detachable crossbars, that work for bare car roofs, and a SUP roof rack that would attach to the removable crossbars. That would give you more stability for long distance trips.
Q:
Will this work for a 2014 Lexus IS 250? And would you also recommend the front and back tie-downs for this car?
A:
Our removable SUP rack will work on a 4 door vehicle such as your 2014 Lexus IS 250, but that is assuming you don't have a roof rack/crossbars on your car already (if you do, you would want to go with other options for securing your board to any existing crossbars). And, yes, we would recommend Front and Back Tie-downs to help further secure your board, in addition to the removable SUP rack.
Q:
I have a 4-door Jeep Wrangler hardtop. Will this work for my paddle board?
A:
Our removable SUP rack would work for a 4-door hardtop Jeep Wrangler. If your SUP is particularly long, you might want to consider also using some front & back tie downs, though, if it is hanging over too much in front and back, due to the compact size of a Jeep
Q:
I have a 2014 Odyssey (sliding doors) without a roof rack and would like to use this rack to transport an 11'6" SUP, will that work?
A:
This emovable SUP rack is probably not going to work your Honda's sliding doors. The track for the sliding doors will possibly interfere with the straps working properly to secure the rack pads and board to the rooftop. If you have rear passenger windows and front driver/passenger windows, you could possibly run the straps through those. However, that might space the front and back pads out a little far from each other, but it could possibly work - though we would not guarantee it. We don't have an alternative to suggest, as our other removable racks run into the same potential problem with the sliding doors, , and the manufacturers of those removable racks do not show them as being compatible for the 2014 Honda Odyssey.
Q:
Will this work on ford escape. 2014?
A:
Our removable SUP rack will fit bare-roofed vehicles that do not have an existing roof rack/crossbar system. For it to work for your Ford Escape, your Escape will need to be a 4 door vehicle, as the straps run under the doors under the roof. If that model auto is on the smaller size, but still has 4 doors, you can use this rack, but depending on the size of your SUP, you may wish to also use front & back tie-downs in addition to this removable rack, to further secure/stabilize your board.
Q:
Will it hold 2 boards? 1 is 11'6" and one is 12' something.
A:
Yes, you can transport up to two SUPs with our removable SUP car rack! You might want to consider using foam spacers between the boards though.
Q:
I have a 2014 Ford Fusion Energi. Will this roof rack work for this vehicle?
A:
Our Universal Roof Rack should work for your 2014 Ford Fusion Energi. It works for cars that don't have an existing roof rack system/crossbars, and that have 4 doors. One note, if that model is a very compact 4 door, you may want to consider using additional front and back tie downs for your SUP, for an added level of security, especially if you have a large SUP.
Q:
Your photos show the straps around the door frame, holding the door closed. If this the correct installation, how do you get into and out of the car?
A:
Yes, that is the correct installation for this Removable/Universal Roof Rack. The rack is for cars that don't have an existing roof rack/crossbar system; one set of its straps go through the car doors and then secure inside your car, under the roof. Then another set secures your boards on top of the roof rack. Once you have secured the straps through your doors, under the roof, you can get in and out of the car, no problem. One note, you do need a vehicle with 4 doors for this type of system to work best to secure your board properly.
Q:
Does this also work with a surfboard? Is the surfboard option too small for a paddle board?
A:
This removable SUP rook rack will work fine for a surfboard. The surfboard versionhas a smaller pads and straps, so wouldn't be recommended for a SUP.
Q:
Will This SUP Rack work for my Toyota Camry? Also can I use 2 boards on this rack?
A:
Our Removable SUP car racks should work fine for your Camry as long as it has 4 doors, as the transportation rack needs to run through all 4 doorways of your vehicle to properly secure the board.

Whether it can hold two boards may depend on how wide and thick your boards, are, including any pads you use between the two boards. The straps that secure around the boards on top of the vehicle are 60" long, so that will be enough strap length for a couple boards in many cases, unless they are very wide and thick.
Q:
I have a Toyota 2008 Corolla with a naked roof, will this be secure for 1-2 boards?
A:
Our Removable SUP Rack works for 4 door vehicles without an existing factory roof rack - so as long as you have 4 doorways the system can run the straps through in your Corolla, it should be fine. It can securely support up to 2 SUPs; the straps that go around the SUPs are 60" long, so normally that long enough to secure two large boards. As long as you properly secure the straps that run inside your vehicle, and the ones that hold your boards, you should be fine.
Q:
Could I use this rack on a 370z Nissan ? I have a small youth size board.
A:
Our removable SUP car rack requires 4 car doorways to run the straps through, that secure the transportation rack underneath a vehicle's roof. Even for a small board, if you have a very compact car without 4 doors, it really won't work to space the rack out, or secure it properly, when you try to run the front and back straps through just two doors, so isn't recommended.
Q:
I have a 2014 Jetta. Will this rack work for a 10 foot, 50 pound paddle board?
A:
This removable SUP roof rack works for vehicles with no existing roof rack, that have 4 doors, so should work for your Jetta. The removable roof rack can secure a large SUP, but given your board is particularly long and heavy, you might want to consider additional nose & tail tie downs, for additional security and stability transporting your board. This is particularly true when you have a fairly compact 4 door vehicle and a very long SUP.
Q:
Will this work for a BMW X3?
A:
This SUP car rack is a universal, removable roof rack that works for vehicles that don't have a factory or other roof rack installed. However, its manufacturer doesn't have a fit guide to guarantee its fit for specific auto models; but it works for most 4 door vehicles, as the straps need to run under the roof through 4 doorways. It looks like the BMW X3 has 4 doors and nothing on to the roof that would get in the way, like an antenna, so it should work for your auto if that is the case.
Q:
Will this be safe for a car with a sun roof?
A:
Our universal/removable SUP rack would need to be placed with one set of straps in front of (before) a sun roof, and the rear set of straps behind the sun roof - you don't want the straps directly on the sun roof. So whether that will work for your car depends on if you can properly space the system that way, to hold your boards and work around the sun roof. Additionally, the straps (front and back) need to go through 4 sets of car doorways.
Q:
Will this work with a 2010 Prius?
A:
This removable/universal SUP rack does not have a manufacturer's fit guide available to guarantee it will work for a model - that is because of its universal nature; it works for most 4 door vehicles, as the straps run through the 4 doorways of a car. If you have a sun or moon roof on your Prius, you will need to space the front and back sets of straps/pads out before and after the moon/sun roof as you don't want them on top of that. Additionally, it looks like you have an antenna at the rear on that model, that may or may not get it in the way; its hard to tell; if it is a removable or retractable antenna, it could work, but the pads raise your board up about 2.5 inches - so it may not be high enough for the end of your board to clear the antennae, which is something to look at.
Q:
Will this rack work for my Acura XLT 2014?I have a SUP board?
A:
This universal roof rack works for vehicles with 4 doors, that don't have any existing factory crossbars (so a bare roof).There isn't an official fit guide available from the manufacturer for this removable system, though, to guarantee it will work for your model-year Acura - so besides having 4 doorways, for the straps to secure through, the other things to consider are, whether there is an antenna in the back of the roof of your car that could get in the way of your board when it is tied to the top of the roof (the pads will elevate the board about 2.5", for reference - to know whether it will clear the antenna.

Another factor to consider is any sun/moon roof -- you normally don't want to place roof racks on top of those, so if you have one, you would need to place the front roof racks either in front of or behind it - so how well that spaces out on your vehicle could be a question-mark and you could also refer to your owner's manual to see whether there are any precautions against placing items directly on your vehicle's sun/moon roof or not.

The system does hold larger and heavy SUPs, so would work for transporting a SUP.
Q:
Will this work on a 2007 Honda Ridgeline?
A:
This Removable SUP transportation rack doesn't have a manufacturer's fit guide to guarantee it will work for a specific make/model/year auto; however, for whether it would work for your truck -- you will need to have 4 doorways for the straps to run through, for starters. So if that is a 4 door vehicle, the other consideration will be how long your SUP is - for how well it will sit on top of your truck, if you don't have a covered cab. If it is a very long SUP, you might want to use some additional nose & tail tie downs to secure the board in transit.
Q:
Will this work for a Ford Focus four door?
A:
Yes, our removable SUP Car Rack should work fine on your 4 door Ford Focus. It will raise the board about 2.5 inches above the roof, so if your car has an antenna in the back, that could get in the way if its the antenna is taller than 2.5" inches (if it isn't retractable or removable), so that is something you might want to look at. You could use possibly additional pads to raise it more as an option if the board needs to clear a taller antenna. I hope that helps give you an idea.
Q:
My suv has a antenna in the back does this lift the board high enough to not damage it?
A:
The pads on this removable transportation rack are 2.5" tall, so that is how high they will raise your board. An alternative is this SUP Roof Rack that has base pads that are 4" tall, if that extra height would help.
Q:
I have a 2010 HHR 4 door wagon with a sunroof, will this fit my car? Also, what is the furthest distance you reccomed using this system?
A:
This Removable SUP transportation rack does not have an official fit guide available from a manufacturer, guaranteeing it will work for specific make/model/year autos. However, the basic guidelines to know if it fits your vehicle is whether you have 4 doors - as you need to run the straps through 4 doorways. So for starters, you vehicle has 4 doors so that part works; ideally you need to space the front and back straps/pads around the sunroof - you normally don't want to have them directly on top of a sunroof, so whether you can space them out properly around yours may be a question-mark.

The only other thing to look at is whether you have an antenna in front or back that the system wouldn't raise your board high enough to clear - it will raise your board about 2.5 inches about the rooftop.

If upon looking at those guidelines you think it could work for your car, how comfortable you are driving long distances really is a personal preference that varies by user, size of boards, size of vehicle and types and conditions of roads you are travelling. For really long travels, and with a very big board, sometimes using extra nose and tail tie-downs (In additional to the roof rack) can be helpful. If you haven't used this type of roof rack before, before going on longer travels, we would recommend you get used to using it on shorter distances first. Again, it really varies what it can feel like to different people - but if properly secured, can be a very economical way to transport a board.
Q:
Will this work on my 2016 Volkswagen Beetle Wolfsburg Edition?? I hope so, I would really like to buy it.
A:
Unfortunately, this removable SUP roof rack won't work on your particular Beetle, as it requires running the straps through 4 doorways, and doesn't work properly or safely for 2 door autos. This is true of all of these type of removable systems, so I wish I had an alternative to suggest, but there really isn't one.
Q:
Will this work for 2 SUP boards on a 2011 Honda Odyssey van?
A:
Our SUP Car Rack generally works well for larger vehicles such as your Honda Odyssey van, I can't guarantee it will work but according to the product details on the listing I see no reason why it would not! To answer the other part of your question, this rack can accommodate up to 2 SUP boards so you should be good to go there as well.
Q:
I have the wind visors above all 4 windows on my 2011 F150. Does the system hug the roof, with the door closing on it or does it go through the windows?
A:
Our removable SUP rack works for any vehicles without existing roof rack systems and secures by having one set of its straps go through the car doors and then secure inside your car, under the roof. Then another set secures your boards on top of the roof rack. So you just need a car/truck that has 4 doorways for this to work. One thing to note is that you may want to purchaseadditional front and back tie downsfor extra security of your SUP on the rack. Since this rack is supposed to be universal for any 4 door car, I don't have a fit guide to guarantee that it would work with your 2011 F150 but I believe it should work well for you!
Q:
I have a 2013 Ford Focus sedan, I have an antenna on top of my car. The antenna can be removed but there is still a slight bump (2 inches high maybe) do you think this would be a problem while using your roof rack to transport my sup board? I am not sure if the bump can be removed as well or not.
A:
This removable rack system might not raise your board enough to clear that 2" antenna nub/base, as it only raises the board by about that much, so it would be close. An alternative would be this removable system which is similar, but will raise the board about 3.75" above the bare roof top, and can hold up to two SUPs. That should clear your antenna nub, though as you think, you would probably need to remove the antenna on that model, as the antenna would most likely be in the way.
Q:
Is this a "use as needed" product? Meaning you only keep it on your car whenever you're transporting the board? But otherwise take it off? Just curious with rain and possible accumulation in the padding/ potential rusting of the buckles
A:
Yes, this removable transportation system is meant to use when you are transporting a board, then you can remove it when you don't need it, and are done using it. It is quick to remove. However, the cam buckles are rust-proof so it can be exposed to weather.
Q:
Will I be able to transport my 11" long x 35" wide SUP board on my 2014 Mazda 6 with this?
A:
Your model vehicle is fairly compact appearing, and that is a large board, so it may be a question-mark whether this removable transportation system would work for you. Since it has a relatively universal fit, there is no official fit guide available from the manufacturer to guarantee whether it works with a vehicle, and then there are the variables like your board's size. You basically need 4 doors, for starters; but if that is a compact model, you will have a lot of board on that roof (and it isn't clear if there is any antenna or other roof top things to work around and how well it would work around or with any sun roof). If you do have 4 doorways on that model, and it is compact, you might need additional front/back tiedowns to really secure and stabilize the board The straps themselves are long enough they would secure that wide of a SUP but how it would feel while driving may be a question-mark, and it can vary by user, but I am overall inclined to think it won't be comfortable using this system for that board on your car.
Q:
I have a 2004 Prius and Two 9 1/2 feet SUP's. Will this work for my car and will it work for long distance ? Like 1200 miles long distance.
A:
This removable transportation rack works for up to 2 SUPs, and for vehicles that don't have an existing roof rack, as long as they have 4 doorways it can run its straps through. There isn't a fit guide available from the manufacturer to guarantee it will fit exact year/make/models, though; one concern would be that it looks like that year Prius has an antenna in back that could get in the way. The system raises the bottom board up only about 2 inches above the roof - so if that won't be enough for the end of your board to clear the antenna that would be a problem. This 1-2 board transportation rack has pads that raise the board up 3.75" if that would help.

The other concern will be those are long boards on a relatively compact car, so travelling a long distance like that will require frequently checking the straps and adjusting if needed, and you might want to consider front and back tie downs as an additional security measure.

Additionally, the experience with a removable rack systems really varies by each individual user due size of their boards, type of car, and road & weather conditions traveled; so prior to a longer trip one may want to get a feel for how the system works for them.
Q:
Is this price for a set or for only 1 pad?
A:
This removable SUP transportation system is a complete set. It ships with pads and straps to secure the front and back of your board to the rooftop of a 4 door vehicle.
Q:
Will this fit on a 2015 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid? And worried about it shaking do I need to buy extra straps if I go over 50mph?
A:
It would be a close call on how well this removable transportation rack would work on your Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, since that is a fairly compact vehicle. There is no official fit guide available from the manufacturer, to guarantee it will work for any vehicle, so you have to go by some basic guidelines - with this being the main one: does the vehicle have 4 doorways to run the straps though? So your car meets that requirement, but since it is compact and there is an antenna in the back, you would want to make sure the board would clear the antenna... the basic pads are only going to raise the board a couple of inches off your roof top. If you think it could clear the antenna, you would definitely want to consider additional front & back tie-downs for extra security/stability, as SUPs are big boards.
Q:
will this work on an ford escape w/a sunroof?
A:
If your particular Ford Escape has 4 doorways for the straps to run through, this removable SUP rack should be fine. You might want to check your owner's guide to see if there are any restrictions on what you can place directly ontop of the closed sunroof; but other than that you also could possibly work the strap pads around the sunroof if needed, with the front set in front of it, if that works. The only other thing one can sometimes need to work around is if there is an antenna on your vehicle that will be in the way of your board. The pads raise your board only a few inches off the roof top, should you have an antenna on that model, for consideration.
Q:
Will this rack be suitable for a long SUP on a ford fiesta?
A:
There is no manufacturer's fit guide for this removable SUP transportation rack that will guarantee it will work for a specific year, make, model of vehicle, so the only guidelines for whether it will work for your Ford Fiesta are if it has 4 doorways (which those appear to have) that the straps can run through. Additionally, something to look at is any antenna on your vehicle's top, as to whether it would get in the way of the board being transported. Those would be the main things to go by, as this will otherwise work for a 4 door vehicle.
Q:
I have a small short bed truck and a large paddle board. I believe it would be best to transport it on my roof rather then in the bed as my bed is too short for my board. I also don't want to drill holes in my truck for a over the bed rack. I;m trying to decide between a soft rack vs a detachable cross bars and pad kit system. Regardless I'm using a nose and tail tie down system. What is your opinion between using the two different roof rack systems? I feel like the use of the cross bars would be more durable but have read not so good reviews on the stability of the bar?
A:
The main consideration for what might work for your truck, using a removable system -- whether removable crossbars or thisremovable soft rack -- is whether the truck has 4 doorways. If it doesn't have 4 doorways, the straps will not be spaced out well enough to properly secure the removable bars or soft rack, and would *not* be recommended for this type of system.

If you do have 4 doorways, then which will work better for you will be a little bit of personal preference, that will be affected by the size of your board in relation to your truck, as well as the types of roads and distances you are travelling. The removable soft rack with additional front & rear tie-downs for your board would probably be fine.

With the removable crossbars, you get your board raised higher, but would need to use tie-downs to secure the board to the rack and then nose/tail tie-downs would be helpful, so they will require additional set-up. As to how stable the bars are - I haven't run into people having a lot of issues using them; our feedback has been fairly positive on those using them, usually because it was the right choice for their needs.

The main thing is with either type of removable roof rack, the experience for individual users of them really is personal, because of all the variables mentioned above (vehicle & board type, types of roads traveled, etc.). One person will feel tenuous driving a short distance, where another will be ready to go almost anywhere. Removable systems don't offer the type of stability that a hard roof rack/crossbar system will, but are the perfect solution for many when they don't have crossbars.
Q:
Will this fit a 2010 prius?
A:
Our removable SUP car rack should work for your Prius. However, there is no official fit guide available from the manufacturer, due to its "universal" nature, to guarantee it will work for any vehicle....so we have to go by the basic guideline of whether the vehicle has 4 doorways to run the straps through. So in a 4 door Prius, it would work. What you would need to look at in addition would be,if your particular model is a fairly compact vehicle, and you have a really long SUP, you may need to think about how that board is going to sit on the vehicle top, with straps that are spaced through the 4 doorways -- and if you have an antenna that isn't retractable or removable, whether it would be in the way of the board.
Q:
Will these racks fit onto a 2012 Ford F-150 crew cab?
A:
For this SUP transportation rack, it can work for vehicles without existing roof racks, as long as they have 4 doorways that the straps can run through. As long as your Ford F-150 has those 4 doorways, it should work - but one thing you want to keep in mind is if you have a particularly long SUP, if a lot of the rear of the board is hanging over an open bed, in back of your truck, not on the roof of the cab, then you may want to consider additional front and rear tie-downs for the board, to provide additional stability in transit.
