Paddle board car racks are a very important part of the SUP transportation process. How to store and transport a stand up paddle board are serious concerns given
the massive size of these boards. Regular surf racks on your car will work,
but you’d be wise to get wider SUP roof rack pads. For inside storage,
you can’t typically store a 10’ – 12’ SUP vertically
in the corner as residential ceilings are usually only 8-9’, so you have
to store them horizontally. For storing a stand up board at home, it’s
best to get a SUP wall rack solution to get them up and out of the way. Even
then, not all rooms have a 12’ long wall, so depending on the size of
your stand up paddle board, you’ll need to find a suitable room like the
living room, a recreation room, or ideally the garage. Because of the storage and transportation issues regarding SUP boards, iSUP boards are incredibly versatile due to the fact that they can deflate and be rolled up for easy transportation.
When transporting a stand up paddle board from your home to the water you will need a paddle board car rack that will keep your board safe during the ride. Paddle board car racks can come in either a double or single soft rack system. These types of paddle board car racks will provide cushion between the top of your car and the SUP board.
