Well I never thought I would be this foolish looking guy, but I suppose there is a first time for everything. How does one look this ridiculous you may ask? Well it’s surprisingly easier than it looks. I recently purchased an 08′ Exterra, thinking my car no longer serves my surfer image. Planning to go surfing, I threw my board overhead only soon realizing that all my car surfboard racks aren’t going to work, due to the luggage rack. No problem I thought. I’m not going to waste money on another rack, bugee cords and the luggage rack should be just fine. I proceeded to wrap 6 bungee cords in a web of nonsenses all connecting to the rack and drove away thinking there is no way my surfboard is going anywhere. 5 min down the road I saw my board flying threw the air and an unlucky guy behind me, desperately trying to avoid having it smash his windshield. The man somehow avoided my board, but once it hit the ground, it didnt stand a chance. I soon looked liked the man in the photo crossing the road and returned home thinking how could I be such and idiot.
Well after a little research later, I was happy to realize trusty and cheap block surf makes SUV surfboard racks on Amazon that could have saved me my $500 dollar board.
I know own a pair of these guys. If you have an SUV and looking for a cheap and easy surfboard rack, these are my first choice. You cant beat the price. Yes bungee cords are cheaper, but USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Surfboards are more expense. So don’t be this dude with the bugees. Happy Surfing!
