Hi, I'm new here and new to surfing and hoped someone here could answer my question.
I've just bought a longboard to learn on and, because of the Easter traffic and the hassle of getting the car near the shop, I carried it back to the house where we often stay and is next to the beach. Good job too, in all the excitement of the whole deal, I didn't figure on trying to fit the board to the roof bars as we also have a roofbox fitted to carry four wetsuits, boots and bodyboards towels etc. (the boot of the car is used for other stuff when we're away for the week-end so it's out of the question).
Is it possible to strap the board on its edge alongside the box or will this just damage the board? Would it be safe with a cross wind etc? Has anyone else got around this problem or know of a solution?
I look forward to any suggestions.......please !
