Surfing School - Equipment - Surf Racks


If you are going surfing, chances are that you are driving a car to get there. If you have a truck with a bed or a big wagon that you can throw your board(s) into, then you don't have to worry about this section. However, like most people, you will require some type of system for getting your boards to the beach safely.

Racks go on top of your vehicle to hold your surfboard. There are usually two parallel bars, one in front and one in back. Each one of these bars will have some type of foam/cloth protection on them so you can lay your board across them. Lastly, you will need something to hold your board down while you are cruisin' at high speeds; you don't want your board lifting off without you knowing it.

Usually you will have to go out and invest in some racks, unless you think you can build some yourself. Sometimes, your car may even come with racks, and all you need to do is get some padding and straps. Here is an example of Yakima's surf racks:

The best thing to do if you need some racks is to go check out the options. Try Yakima or Thule.
