Safety Tips When Transporting Your Surfboards
One of the most important considerations when transporting your surfboards, Kayaks, SUPs and any other large load is how you will keep it safe for others and yourself. Below are a few safety tips you can implement on your next surfing road trip:
1. Make sure the tie down straps for your 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 and mindfully. 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. 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 a few times because you can’t tell when the straps may come loose even with all the preparations.
