Imagine stopping at the local supermarket to pick up a few things on the way home from a day of surfing, only to your surprise, your pized board, and not too mention prized investment, has been ripped off.
Thankfully all of us here at the surfboard racks blog have never been a victim of surf board theft, although we have all heard the horror stories. Which is why we have decided to hunt down and talk about the best traveling locking surfboard racks we could find.
If you do a quick search on the web, you really wont find too many locking surfboard racks. Most are made for you beach house or home, but many wont lock your surfboard when you are traveling. If you are serious about locking your surfboard when your on the move, we highly recommended you grab yourself some Steelcore Security Straps, shown above.
The Steelcore Security Straps work the same ways as most surfboard straps in the sense that they use the cam buckle. You simply thread the strap through the buckle and close the latch. The only difference is that after you shut the latch, you can now lock it keep anything wrapped in their grip safe and secure. Think someone could just cut them to get to your surfboard? Think again. The straps are made out of steel, making them nearly cut proof, even with bolt cutters, making them the ultimate locking straps. They also come in 9, 12, and 15 feet for locking just about everything you have.

Steelcore also makes a locking tailgate rack as well that works in the same manner. Simply wrap the strap around your tailgate, slide your surfboard into the top strap and lock away. In order for someone to now steal your surfboard they have to take your tailgate as well. To learn more about the Steelcore Tailgate Rack check out the pics and pricing page.
Steelcore aslo makes locking soft surfboard racks for you car, as well as locking surfboard carries for your SUV. Both work in the exact same manner as existing soft surfboard racks and pads, but with the locking cam buckles.
