The 9 Best Surfboard Car Racks
This wiki has been updated 15 times since it was first published in March of 2017. The sun is out, the swells are rising, and your board is freshly waxed -- now the only issue is getting it to the beach. Simply tie it to your roof and you may risk damaging the fiberglass; jam it inside the cabin and you're likely to scuff up your interior. With one of these surfboard car racks, though, you can securely fasten your board atop your vehicle without having to worry about either.

As most roofs vary in design and functionality -- some come with crossbars, some do not -- so too do surfboard car racks. In putting this list together, we made sure to include the full range of options, from soft, basic blocks that can be used on roofs without bars or gutters to high-tech carriers that mount to already installed rack systems. The FCS Premium Double Soft, for example, puts plenty of padding between board and roof without requiring any additional equipment, while the Inno Racks Top Mount provides tons added security when used in conjunction pretty much any type of crossbar. We also included models like the Dakine Long Aero, which helps protect your board from dings and scratches by slipping onto roof carriers and providing extra cushion.
