Got a big surf trip coming up? Whether it's by car, plane or train, the right surfboard bag plays a huge role in the success of your strike mission. Nothing ruins the stoke at your destination quicker than unpacking your bag and realizing your surfboard (or boards) are dinged or cracked (although if it's flat, that kills the stoke pretty quickly too). In that situation, you've got to get your hands on some quick-cure ding repair, a rental board, or a DIY duct tape temporary solution. None of those are a great way to start your trip.

What is the right way to secure your paddleboard to your car roof rack?
For cars with roof rack bars, it’s all about feeding the straps around the bars and your paddleboard in the right direction for max security. You’ll have 2 straps, one in front and one in back. Start with the clamp end of the first strap on the outside of the board, underneath the roof rack bar. Run the strap across the top width of the paddleboard to the other side of the board, underneath the rack bar, and back along the width of the board. There it will meet the clamp end and you will tighten appropriately. Tie off the excess strap and give your paddleboard and the straps a couple of pulls to make sure nothing is loose.
