On the look out for a quick, easy and secure way of transporting your precious SUP cargo? Getting your board or boards on and off your vehicle can be a time consuming process. Factoring in weather conditions that can add some spice to the occasion like pouring rain, excessive wind or better yet pouring rain and windy you just don't want to waste time strapping your board down.
