Thule SUP Taxi Surf Rack $269.95
Alpine reservoirs to coastal estuaries.
Aquatic adventures await you when your vehicle's equipped with the Thule SUP Taxi Surf Rack. This premier locking carrier quickly and easily secures two of your favorite Stand-Up Paddleboards (SUPs). Its telescoping design provides a truly custom fit with boards up to 34-inches in width, while its heavy-duty steel reinforced webbing and spring-loading locking mechanism firmly secure your boards for added peace of mind, especially on long road trips with gusty winds. The rack's soft, weather-resistant padding protects boards from small dings and scratches during transit and loading.
Perhaps most impressive with this SUP rack is its Speed-Link mounting system that painlessly attaches to Thule racks (tool-free installation), round bars, and most factory-equipped racks, with help from Thule's included factory rack mounting hardware. Furthermore, you'll appreciate the four included One-Key locks for locking the strap assembly and mounting system to your vehicle, preventing thieves from easily walking away with your favorite SUPs.

Perfect for one board
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The carrier holds a paddle board nicely in place and the rubber protection prevents damage to the board. The width is adjustable and accommodates wider boards as well. It's also nice that the straps can be locked, so you can throw your board on top of your car the even before an early "dawn patrol".
It's also really easy to put the carrier on and off the roof rack, faster than a bike rack, for example.
The only minor complaints I have are that I wish the straps would be rubberized so that the second board on to doesn't slide around as much. Also, the carrier angle cannot be adjusted (to my knowledge). Therefore, if the cross rails are not perfectly horizontal, the board is only going to sit on one of the two rubber "lips" of the carrier, but I haven't seen any issues with that.
Tip: if you can't get the key out of the lock, slightly loosen the thumbs screw that tightens the straps and it will come out.
fits your paddle board great
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
this thule rack is awesome, its super easy to set up, and install on any roof mount. it does a great job holding your paddle board close to your car so you dont have to worry about losing it to your favorite destination.
