Vertical Surfboard Carrier - For Slimline II Roof Rack - by Front Runner Outfitters

A very handy and useful accessory for the Slimline II Roof Rack Kit is this vertical surfboard carrier. It will by all means make the life of all surfer enthusiasts an easier one.

Not only will your surfboards or SUPs safe and sound, but mounting them and taking them off will be a breeze. And all of this at the same time as you save space on your car and on top of your rack.

Get your board up and off the top of the Front Runner Slimline II Rack and free up valuable storage space for a Roof Top Tent or other gear.

This surf board carrier was designed to keep your boards safe and secure during transport on the world’s toughest roads. Features variable length adjustment, padded board protection and 2 carrying positions.

These two movable holders securely clamp your surfboard in-place vertically on either side of a Front Runner Slimline II Rack for easy transportation to free up room for other gear like Roof Top Tents, Kayaks, bikes, fishing rods, water and fuel, etc.

Features:

  • Adjust the holders along the length of the rack to accommodate various size boards.
  • 2 supplied Front Runner Stratchits hold the Surfboard snug against padded side rests. The Stratchit straps clever cinching system provide easy-on and easy-off secure transport every time.
  • The vertical holders can be folded down and stored flat against the rack top.
  • If space on the rack top is available, the holders can be used in their flat “horizontal” positions to mount a surfboard or other larger boards for SUP or wind surfing.
  • Each vertical holder and side rest has soft touch foam padding to cradle your valuable gear without harming or scratching the surfaces. The Soft touch pads are made from a weather resistant cross-linked, closed cell Polyethylene.
  • Included rubber pads provide further protection between your board and the Front Runner Stratchit straps.
  • The brackets are made from 3CR12 stainless steel and sealed with the same durable, weather resistant black powder coating as the Front Runner Slimline II Roof Racks.
  • In the vertical position the holders measure 400mm (15.8") high from the underside of the Slimline II Rack Tray. When folded flat in the locked horizontal position the holders measure 45mm high from the underside of the Slimline II Rack Tray.
  • Can be used with Front Runner Slimline II Roof Racks, Bed Racks and Trailer Racks.
  • Easily bolts to your Slimline II Rack with supplied hardware.
  • Includes all necessary installation hardware and fitting instructions.

FAQs:

  • Can you drive at highway speeds with a board in the vertical position? Yes you can. As long as the Vertical Surfboard Carrier is mounted properly and your surfboard is strapped down and secure, driving at highway speeds is perfectly fine. 
  • How many boards can be carried in it? We recommend referring to your local road regulations, however when the surf mount is in the horizontal, down position, we have seen customers carry 2-3 boards without issue.
  • How big can the boards be? The Vertical Surfboard Carrier was designed with SUPs in mind and can carry a board up to 3 inches thick. Remember that the size of your rack will have an impact on how far apart you can spread the vertical holders for the board. On a small rack, we wouldn’t advise holding a large SUP. 
  • Can I use it alongside my rooftop tent? Be sure to mount the Surfboard on the non opening side of the Roof Top Tent and you will not have to remove it.
  • Can I stack my surfboards? You can stack your surfboards in the flat position but not in the vertical position.

    Receiving Your Order

    Please inspect your package for damage prior to signing for it. 

    Off Road Tents takes pride in its products and packaging. Every tent that we ship out is properly classified, packaged, marked and labeled.  Also each package is in the proper condition for transportation according to applicable regulations of the Australian Department of Transportation and/or international agencies.

    Once your order is signed for at the delivery point, the package becomes your property and thus, our liability ends as far as shipping damage is concerned. Help protect yourself from loss or damage, or an uncomfortably painful claims process by:

    1. Before Signing for your order, inspect the box or boxes for freight loss or damage. Red flags are punctures or any sign of forklift damage.


    2. If any of the product(s) appear to be damaged or crushed do not accept delivery. Refuse the shipment and it will be sent back for processing.


    3. It is extremely important that you inspect the box and tent (in case the item purchased is a tent) for damage BEFORE you sign it off to accept it. Please take photos of the box on the pallet exactly as it arrives.

    Please note, the driver will not help with damage inspection. IF you even suspect there could be damage to your item, please take pictures of the damage and REFUSE the delivery. That way the carrier will send it back and we'll process a new shipment.


    4. Get a copy of the signed delivery receipt that shows the freight loss or damage notation, and that you refused it.


    5. Contact Off Road Tents AU immediately at +61 (0)429 859 227


    If you accept a damaged delivery, and/or there is freight loss and/or the damage is not noted at the time of delivery, Off Road Tents AU cannot be held liable for any replacement costs related to the shipment. Protect yourself from this by examining before you sign.
