Safety Tips When Transporting Your Surfboards
The next thing you need to consider when transporting your surfboards, Kayaks, SUPs and any other large load is how you will keep it safe not only for others and yourself. Follow these safety tips;
1. Make sure your tie down straps for car roof racks are attached to solid points. It is important that the straps are properly hooked to the roof bars or metal frame and not onto plastic.
2. Drive slowly. Car speed affects the impact of wind on your roof car and it can be dangerous to drive faster while you rooftop is loaded with cargo. So make sure to control your speed particularly during turns. Note: A well tied down load with quality straps will be able to handle any european motorway with ease.
3. Check tie down strap connections intermittently. Better check than never because you can’t tell when the straps may come loose even with all the preparations.
