Hey there, I am a surfer and have been for the past 14 years. I live in TX* where most of the time I have to ride my 9'-6" board. I also have a 6'-6" & a 6'-5" fish/hybrid short boards. Looking to sell one of the short boards. I personally have surfed most of the TX coast and the following... California: La Jolla, Point Loma, OB, & PB Hawaii:Hawaii, Oʻahu & Kauaʻi & Fanning Island/Tabuaeran which is part of the Kiribati Island chain located, for you map geeks, 3Â°51′36″N 159Â°21′52″W just below the equator. How do you guys strap your boards to the rack? Do you use straps, buggies, rope, Strap Thang by Yakima, etc., etc....? Do you have piX of your X sporting a surfboard? I'll have to take pix of my boards and post them.
