This innovative and secure universal surfboard roof rack has everything you need to get your surfboards to the water safely and securely. It's got your boards covered - literally - as foam padding cocoons around your surfboards, providing protection from your car's roof and any vibration damage during travel. The padding also extends around your board's rails, so you don't have to worry about too tight straps cracking your boards.
These racks are truly universal because they can secure to your car around your existing hard roof rack bars, or through your doors if you don't have a roof rack system on your car. Roll the rack up into its pouch and take it with you on your next destination surf trip and know that they'll fit your rental car.
The truly unique feature of this surfboard car rack is its single loop closure "lockdown" system that secures the rack to your car and your surfboards to the rack. This rack has only 1 closure that tightens in 1 place - under your car roof or roof bars - so you only need to tighten the racks in 1 place (instead of 2 on other roof racks). Securing around the top of your surfboards fits an S clip that you can open to load or unload your boards but that tightens automatically when you tigten the single closure. Overall the system is simpler to secure your surfboards and also quicker and easier to load and unload!
Surfboard load capacity is not sacrificed by the innovative roof rack system - these racks fit on average, 1-6 shortboards or 1-3 longboards.
Reduce road noise from straps If you experience excess noise from the tie down straps, we recommend giving the straps 2+ twists to prevent any "flutter" noise at high speeds.
Do they come with locks?
These board transportation racks are a very basic option that works well for transporting a board, especially on bare-roofed vehicles. They don't have built-in locks to help with theft prevention. One could use something like dock locks, seen here, in conjunction with the transportation rack, to help lock the board(s) for theft prevention. Dock locks are not a transportation rack, but you can secure your boards to them and a third item to prevent someone from removing the boards. One locking cable comes with them, along with a jaw clamp that can attach to the a leash plug or fin box, and the locking cable -- that secures one board, but if you have more boards to secure you can buy additional jaw clamps to add more boards to the same locking cable.
We needed a solution for 2 SUPs on a car without rails. This works great. Easy to install, fits both perfectly and keeps the boards very stable.
It is a great and reliable product. It is not noisy and stays secure even when driving 75 mph. The first time you set it up it is confusing, but becomes a faster process once you know what you're doing.
I love this product. It's so easy and fast to use. I no longer have to worry if the ratchet straps are too tight or too loose.
The rack is great, you don't have to worry about the cushions moving around at all since they are though the strap. very easy to load up also.
This product worked just like it said. The only suggestion I have to add some sort of ratchet to help tighten the straps
This rack was exactly what we needed to get our board to the beach with us. The customer service is amazing! They kept me updated the entire time and I received the rack sooner than expected.
Works really well. I've transported 2 boards going about 60 mph for a duration of roughly 30 minutes. I gave it 4 stars because it arrived later than the website indicated. Other than that, no complaints.
Initially I was skeptical, as my previous soft rack was terrible. There is a short learning period, but after using 2 or 3 times, it's super easy. I had two 8' Bic boards and a 6'7" short board strapped in and they don't budge. Also holds my two 11' SUPs without a problem. Twist the strap and there is almost no vibration noise. It's still not a permanent roof rack system but it's the best soft rack option out there!!
Just received my new soft racks, did a quick check, everything looks to be in order. Going to try them out for the first time today. A maiden voyage!
I have had several surfboard racks over the years this one provides the best protection to the board rails by far. I could really tighten it down without any damage. At speeds of 90MPH the rack was as silent as a mouse and the boards were solidly glued to the roof. I have two boards a long and short both in board bags with three wetsuits in the board bags. The only thing missing from the instructions for installation was to twist the straps twice on the roof before passing them through the doorway to prevent the vibration/noise. This is the top notch gear, love it and trust it.
Work great! Protects the rails and a twist takes the hum away as I learned on old soft racks and if people read, they see you advise it as well.
Easy to install, works well, and good quality. Good value.
Sorry guys, I was sold until I reached a speed of 45 mph. The straps rattled, fluctuated, vibrated us right out of the vehicle. We had to return the surfboard and leave it behind, bummer!
Secure and very easy to put on and take off. Also great because it can be used for every car we have.
Very convenient and cost effective
