Securing Surfboard to Car

  1. Place boards fin side up, and facing the front of the vehicle.
  2. Secure the shorter straps over your surfboards, feed through buckle and pull to tighten (your boards should not move and the strap should not loosen).
  3. If boards extend more than 3ft beyond the soft rack pads (ex: longboards), secure the front of the boards to avoid lift from excessive winds while driving.
