I began surfing well before I could even think about driving a car. If fact, I learned how to surf before I even learned to ride a bike. The only reasoned I even learned to ride a bike was simple because it allowed me to go to the beach to surf. Thus the need for the Bicycle Surfboard Rack.
I have had quite a few over the years and I would have to say The Carver Bike Rack is one of my favorites. Here is the one I currently own which can be found on Amazon for a pretty reasonable price.
Notice on this specific type of rack the board will be laying parallel to your bike. I find this to be the best position for keeping the board free from grinding on miscellaneous objects and obtaining marks. Racks that position your board directly behind the bike have one small problem. When you go over bumps they tend to jar the board and it can often come loose and you have no way assisting the board. When the surfboard is parallel, like the rack shown, you can easily reach down to brace it with your hand when you take your bike off road or hit the occasion bump.
I also like this surfboard rack for it’s simple installation process. All tools you need are included and it takes no time at all to slap this guy on. I took this off the carver website to for those curious on installation.
