How to strap a board to your roof rack in 30 seconds

I recently watched someone take 10 minutes to strap their board to their car while I was waiting for their parking spot.  He was going back and forth several times for each strap, looping it around the ends of the racks on both sides, and tying the straps off endlessly.  In the end the board was not even tight on the racks and the board could still slide all over because he tied it around the end of the rack, not snug next to the board and could not really tighten it well because of all the loops he made around the rack.  So, here is a video of a fast way to strap a board to a car easily, quickly and safely.

  1. Getting heavy objects, like kayaks and long surfboards, can take a while for a novice. Roof racks don't have to be fixed; there are do-it-yourself roof racks with padded roller bars. Rolling cargo onto the roof of the car takes less time.
