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, water and fuel, etc.

  • 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.

Product Questions
Can you drive at highway speeds with a board in the vertical position?
Question by: John
Yes! 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. Make sure to check out our Stratchits (STRA034) if you need something to strap your board down!
Answer by: Front Runner
How many boards can be stacked in the horizontal position?
Question by: Adam
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.
Answer by: Front Runner
I just recently purchased them, can I a put a kayak and a SUP at the same time laying down? Or do I need to get a kayak rack?
Question by: Jay-R
What you can carry on the rack all depends on you rack size and the size of items you have to mount. A smaller SUP can be carried on the Vertical Surf Mount (vertically) which would free up space for the kayak on the rack. We do highly recommend getting the Kayak Carrier (SKU: RRAC051) to carry your kayak.
Answer by: Front Runner
Can this carry paddle boards?
Question by: Tyler
The Vertical Surfboard Carrier (RRAC095) 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. It's also important to note that a large SUP sitting vertically could catch some wind, so stay away from tornadoes ; )
Answer by: Front Runner
Is it possible to use these racks mounted to just the load bars? If so, is it possible to haul a smaller SUP board in the vertical position?
Question by: Jeremy
The Vertical Surfboard Carrier (RRAC095) was designed to mount to the side profiles of our Front Runner Slimline II Roof Racks and therefore will not be able to mount to just Load Bars.
Answer by: Front Runner
I assume the rack can only hold a single board in the vertical position, correct? When transporting in the horizontal (flat) position would the rack accommodate additional boards?
Question by: Ryan
You are correct - you can stack your surfboards in the flat position but not in the vertical position.
