Product Description

The SUP Roof Rack is one of the premier soft roof racks available for transporting your SUP. The SUP Roof Rack is designed to hold up to 2 full-sized SUPs for vehicles with or without built-in roof crossbars! These features make this SUP rack one of the most versatile and effective racks on the market. 

removable-sup-roof-rack-2.jpgThe SUP Roof Rack is a complete racking system that includes (2) base foam blocks, (2) foam spacers, (2) 15ft tie down straps, and (2) internal straps - this is everything you need to safely and securely transport up to two SUPs. This SUP rack system is particularly great because it is designed to work with cars and SUVs with OR without built-in roof racks. The design of the base foam block is what allows the rack to be compatible with almost any vehicle. If you look to the image on the right, you'll see that there is a specialized channel cut in the bottom of the foam block. This specially shaped channel allows you to use the base foam block on square, oval, and round roof rack crossbars. Additionally, a special slit has been cut in the channel that allows you to insert the tie down strap and use it to hold down the base block if you don't have factory crossbars. Awesome!

How it works:

Base foam pads – the base foam pads will either sit on your bare roof or on your crossbars depending on whether you have a built-in roof rack or not. Each base foam block comes with a non-slip TPR bottom that won’t scratch your bare roof or crossbars. The base foam rack is where you set the first SUP.
Spacer foam block – the spacer foam block is what sits between your two SUPs. Once you’ve placed the base foam block and the first SUP down, then you put the spacer foam block down. After you have that in place, you can put your second SUP down.
Internal tie down straps – the internal tie down straps are the straps that are used to secure your SUPs to the foam blocks. As seen in the images, you run the strap through the channel in the base foam block and around your boards. You may not need or want to use the internal tie down straps if you are using the base foam blocks on your built-in crossbars.
Main tie down straps – these tie down straps are used to secure the entire system down to your car. If you are using this SUP roof rack without built-in crossbars, then you’ll want to wrp the main tie down straps over both your boards and through your car. If you’re using this rack system with built-in crossbars, then you can just tie down your boards using the crossbars or other parts of your vehicle’s factory rack as an anchor point.  

  • Holds up to 80lbs
  • Base block dimensions: 24" long x 4.75" wide x 3.75" tall
  • (2) 15ft straps

This product lost a star only because it was tricky to figure out how to configure it to the car. But once I figured that out, my board felt safe and secure the entire journey (even going up to 45mph)!

Q:
Can I use this SUP Roof Rack on my 2-door car? If yes, will it still hold up to 2 paddleboards?
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 2 or 3 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:
I do not have a crossbars, but I do have sidebars on the top of my Ford freestyle. Will this get tight enough without the use of crossbars? There is space to go under the side roof bars, and touch the roof and go under.
A:
This double SUP roof rack should work fine on your Ford. You do not need crossbars to use this removable rack. You do want the pads and straps to sit flush on the rooftop -- but you should be able to run the straps through the space in your sidebars and get it tightened.
Q:
Will this rack carry two plastic sups? 30" wide each and 8" thick each, mounting to a Chevy Avalanche?
A:
Our removable SUP vehicle rack should work fine for your plastic SUPs of that size. And it works for vehicles with and without crossbars.
Q:
Can you tell me if you have a roof rack for my Nissan Rogue to carry a couple paddle boards? Note, there is nothing on the roof of this vehicle, no rails.
A:
If your Nissan Rogue is a 4 door, you would be able to use this double-SUP universal/removable rack. It holds up to two paddle boards, and works on vehicles without a roof rack or rails. That would probably be the best option for transporting more than one SUP when you don't have existing crossbars.
Q:
I have a 2009 Camry Hybrid, 4 doors with a sunroof. Is this rack a good option?
A:
Our removable SUP rack is a good option if you don't have a roof rack; it should work fine with your car since you have 4 doors for it to run through. You won't be able to use your sun roof when using the rack system, but that would not otherwise be a problem.
Q:
Can I use this on a Toyota Sienna minivan that has sliding doors (and no roof rack)?
A:
This removable rack does not appear to be compatible with your minivan, based on the manufacturer's fit guide for their line of removable racks. It is probably because of the sliding doors, so most removable racks may not work properly or at all with your auto.
Q:
Will this rack be compatible with a 2016 Honda Fit? It has a small antenna on the back part of the roof.
A:
This SUP Roof Rack should work fine for your Honda Fit. It works for vehicles with or without an existing crossbar system. So if you don't have existing/factory crossbars, the pads that will sit on top of your roof are 4" tall, so they should elevate your board enough that the small antennae isn't in the way.
Q:
I am looking for a rack for my 2016 Corolla with nothing on the roof. I need something to take 2 SUP from Atlanta to Tampa. Will this be a good option for highway travel?
A:
This removable/universal roof rack a fine choice for transporting a couple of boards when you don't have crossbars/roof rack to attach a hard rack to. It does get trickier to transport a couple of boards on longer road trips though. If your model Corolla is very compact, and your boards are very long, you want to consider some additional nose & tail tie-downs for your boards, seen here, to use in conjunction with the removable rack. We would recommend those even if your car isn't compact, especially for a longer road trip as planned.

Again, it can vary how secure or comfortable this will feel on a longer road trip, so it is something you might want to see how it works for you in town or locally first, if you have time. Hard roof racks on factory crossbars are usually the way to go if you want to go long distances, but lacking those crossbars, you just want to be comfortablecomfortable with how this feels on top your car at normal speeds/distances to see if it is right choice.
Q:
Will this product accommodate a windsurf board? Perhaps there's concerns with mast feet, tracks, straps, etc on the topside of a windsurfer?
A:
This removable roof rack system may be a good option for your windsurf board. Its hard to say. You are right, the extra gear/parts are what would be tricky, and hard for us to guarantee it would work. The size of a windsurf board itself should not be a problem. W With this rack system, the pads etc. included may give you some ways to stack your boards with enough room you can accommodate the sails etc. - so we think it could possibly work. We don't have an option specifically meant for windsurf boards, but this one might be a good possibility.
Q:
What is the recommended top speed when using this SUP roof rack to transport 2 SUPs long distances?
A:
For long distances, transporting your SUPs with a removable soft rack will require extra caution, to make sure you have secured them properly, and you are going to want to drive cautiously. We really can't tell you a maximum safety speed, as conditions and roads vary - but you may want to consider additional tie-downs for long distance travel, and you may want to test the system out driving locally, before taking off on your trip.

Q:
I am looking for for something similar to this roof rack, for two boards - but without having to remove the fins.
A:
You can leave your fins on one board, and have them face upwards, but there isn't a two board stacking system that would work for having the fins left on both of your SUPs and have them be secured properly on your vehicle. With this particular double-board roof rack, if one board was somewhat smaller, you *might* be able to fit both boards on it with the fins at opposite ends, but most likely it would not work safely to try to secure them that way. Because of the size and shape of SUPs, there aren't any removable roof racks available where you can have one SUP next to the other (side-by-side), which would allow you to have the fins left on both boards. There are some side-by-side surfboard tranport racks, but they aren't going to work for two SUPs, so we don't have a good alternative to suggest.
Q:
Will this rack fit on my Ford Fusion with antenna?
A:
Ourdouble SUP universal rackwill probably not work around your Ford Fusion's antenna. Since its a universal system that can work with or without crossbars, the manufacturer doesn't have a vehicle fit guide -- however, if you are using it without crossbars on your model, the boards are sitting on pads that are 4" tall, so the bottom SUP most likely won't clear that particular antenna.

If you were using the system to attach it to a roof rack system, you might have a few more inches of clearance, depending on the height of the crossbars, as the 4" pads would sit ontop of those.

Whether you could work around that antenna somehow, when using this system with or without crossbars, would be a question mark though and most likely won't work.
Q:
Will this hold an 11 foot paddle board?
A:
The system will hold a 11 foot board, but sometimes with more compact cars and long boards, one will want additional front and back tie-downs, depending on the distance they are travelling.
Q:
Is this product compatible with a Toyota 4Runner with roof racks?
A:
This particular Removable SUP roof rack does not have a fit guide available from the manufacturer for specific auto models; however, it does have a very universal fit for most factory roof racks. The foam blocks it uses have a specialized channel cut in the bottom. This channel allows you to use the base foam blocks on square, oval, and round roof rack crossbars, so it should be fine for your 4 Runner's crossbars.
Q:
I have a VW Beetle, will it work on the rounded top?
A:
No, this removable rack system requires 4 vehicle doorways to be properly secured underneath your car's roof, and spaced properly ontop of the roof to securely hold the board. It would not work for your VW.
Q:
How fast can I drive with 2 boards hooked up to the roof of my car vw jetta?
A:
Our universal SUP roof rack, when used on a 4 door vehicle without crossbars/factory rails, are designed for normal transportation, at reasonable speeds that are safe for the roads and conditions one is travelling. The experience can vary for different people, depending on the size of their particular boards, how compact their car is, how well they secured their boards to the rack, etc. But generally, a soft rack system like this requires extra caution in using and getting used to it, and even practice. It can work well over normal highways and at reasonable speeds, but there isn't an exact guideline for speed, since roads, conditions, etc. vary, other than practicing safe driving techniques and awareness.
Q:
I recently bought 2 – 11 foot SUP’s and I now need to transport them about 120 miles. Once there, they’ll need to be transported no more than 5 miles on any given day. The vehicle the rack system will sit on is a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, a 4- door Jeep hardtop without a roof rack. I’ve never owned a SUP and the Jeep is new, and I’m not sure what exactly I need to purchase. Will this work?
A:
This removable SUP transportation system should work for your boards and your Jeep.

Because it is somewhat of a "universal" system, it doesn't have an official fit guide available from the manufacturer to guarantee it will work for a specific make/model/year auto, so we have to go by some basic guidelines. Your Jeep has 4 doors, so that works, as you run the strapping system through the 4 doorways. The straps are long enough to hold up to 2 SUPs that are no more than 80 lbs combined.

As far as the distance you are travelling, it should fine - how it will feel to you will vary, as that is very personal, the size of the boards, the make of the vehicle and the roads/conditions you are traveling also vary, so you should be fine driving at regular speeds but how it feels to one user can be very different to how it feels to another. Sometimes over very long travels one might want additional front and rear tie-downs, for additional security, to use with the removable system. Another suggestion is that before you take the longer trip, you get accustomed to using the removable rack shorter distances. Otherwise, you should be fine and be able to transport both those boards on that Jeep.
Q:
I have a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee without a rook rack, but it does have rails. Will this product still work for me?
A:
For a vehicle with rails, this removable SUP transportation rack could possibly work, but it will depend on if your rails have openings so that you could run the straps under the rail, through the 4 doorways. If they are solid rails, then it would not work, because the straps wouldn't be flat on the rooftop, and I really don't have a good alternative to suggest in a removable rack that can work around solid rails.
Q:
I have a 2013 ford escape with factory installed carrier. What is my best option to carry one eleven ft sup and one eleven ft 6" board. Both boards will be in a protective cover
A:
This removable two SUP roof rack that you were looking at should work fine for your boards & car; it can work on cars with or without crossbars. It can support up to 80 lbs total, so that is something to look at in case your boards are very heavy. If you transport your boards often, you might want to consider a hard roof rack instead, though, since you have crossbars -- such as this two board hard roof rack, which would fit your factory crossbars according to the manufacturer's fit guide, and can support up to 100 lbs. A hard-roof rack can provide just a bit more stability when transporting your boards.
