How to Transport Your Surfboard Safely to the Beach
At Lanzasurf, we understand how important it is to protect your surfboard during transportation. We have put together this guide to help you transport your surfboard safely to the beach.
Choose the Right Vehicle
Before you transport your surfboard, it is important to choose the right vehicle. Ideally, you want a vehicle with a roof rack or a pickup truck with a bed extender. If you are using a vehicle without a roof rack, you will need to use soft racks to secure your surfboard.
Secure Your Surfboard
Once you have chosen the right vehicle, it is important to secure your surfboard properly. If you are using a roof rack, you will need to use tie-down straps to secure your surfboard to the rack. If you are using soft racks, make sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully to ensure that your surfboard is secured properly.
Protect Your Surfboard
In addition to securing your surfboard, it is also important to protect it during transportation. One way to protect your surfboard is to use a board bag. Board bags are designed to protect your surfboard from scratches, dings, and other damage during transportation.
Another way to protect your surfboard is to use a tailgate pad. Tailgate pads are designed to protect your surfboard from damage when you are transporting it in the bed of a pickup truck.
Once you have secured and protected your surfboard, it is important to drive carefully. Avoid sudden stops and sharp turns, and try to keep your speed steady. If you are transporting your surfboard on the roof of your vehicle, be aware of low clearance areas, such as parking garages and overpasses.
