We recommend you transport your surfboards in a protected surfboard bag if you plan on driving some distance, especially during the warmer months in the U.S. Using the straps and a good surfboard bag can protect your boards from the damaging effects of UV sun rays. When used together, car surfboard straps and a quality board bag have the potential to reduce the board's temperature, hence reducing the risk of heat damage. See our surfboard maintenance guide for more information on how the sun and heat can damage your board, or review our video guide on how to strap a surfboard to your roof rack for further help. We often see surfers who strap their board the wrong way on their roof, resulting in extra drag that at high speed can also damage your boards, especially if done with a poor quality set of surfboard straps for roof racks. Remember to have your fins facing up when placing your boards on the roof, so your nose rocker hugs the car roof to reduce drag.
It's a good idea to think about the straps' strength and length while shopping for Surfboard tie down straps. Nylon and polypropylene, two of the materials used in most of the Boardcave surfboard strap range, are known for their strength and durability. If you want to keep your surfboards from moving about on the roof of your car, non-slip surfboard roof straps are also a good idea. Most modern straps will be designed with texture for extra grip. The length of the straps will determine how many boards or what gear you can tie down on your racks, too long and it can be annoying but too short and you may be caught out if you bring a few friends boards along when hitting the road.
