Utilize a "roller" to help with loading board number 1.
Carry 2 boards.
Locks for both mounts and straps.
Seemed relatively easy to use.
Have great reviews.
Has metal cable in strap to prevent slice-n-theft (not fool proof, but still better!)
Area underneath to feed ends of strap into so they don't flap around.
2 rubber covers on each strap to place on board.
Front tie down.
I carried 2 boards. A Mystykk (10'0" x 31.5" x 4.5") and my husband's Scout (11' x 32" x 4.7"). The bands scooch in to get tighter on the opposite side from the roller. This is great for thinner vs wider boards.
Took a 35mph corner too fast (closer to 50) and pulled over to check boards. Found top board was slightly askew. After that I took corners and turns like people you might hate... slow down, almost stop, turn. Clearly indicating though!! haha.
Note: The top board seemed to have some play. It seemed to be susceptible to a side push which made me a little nervous. We tried a yoga mat but it was too slick (it was a cheapie/freebie), so we wound up cutting a quarter off of a pool noodle and slicing that in half to put under either end which seemed to help some, but not completely.
What info I needed to make my decision that was not readily available and so I "took a chance" anyway:
Highway driving. I drove this thing from the Houston, TX area to Panama City, FL. About 660 miles to my Mom's place. I had no idea what the speed rating on this thing was. On the way there I kept it at 65. Sure this added some time to my trip, but the boards stayed put.
When I came back however, I was more comfortable and picked it up to no more than 70.
At both top speeds every time I stopped, I got out to check the straps and to push the top board forward. The backward shift seemed more evident at the 70 speed than the 65.
There was ZERO noise from unit, except ocassionally when the front strap ends would flap. My hubs had that in a nice knot for me.
Front strap - waves a lot in the wind when behind big vehicles but remained secure. Was hard for me to tighten without actually sitting on the hood of the truck b/c of where the clip/adjustment buckle is at. My husband said we should get a caribiner instead. The strap attaches using a "Y" knot (I think that's what it's called - where you loop the strap through itself).
On the way to PC since the board straps were new, it seemed like I had to continue to tighten them slightly due to a minuscule amount of stretching. This may have been only my perception. On the way back I did not have to tighten the straps more than once.
Other notes: My husband is 6' and loaded both boards for me before leaving Hou and before he flew out of PC. My son and his friend were supposed to help, but we just left them on the top. I'm 5'2 and would probably need a stool to load. My board was much lighter than my husband's and he said it was "easy" to load on top of his. He did say the rollers were helpful.
No place for paddles. dangit! I may purchase an attachment to be able to put them on the top. Ours are adjustable so it wasn't too bad but I wanted to note this. We did carry 7 people to the beach a few times and then during the drive we had a mastiff in the back who needed the space.
Remember to take the valve cover off of the 2nd board. You may want to lay something soft under that space. We noticed when I got back home (TX) that my husband's board had a dent in it from my valve which did not have a cover on it.
I feel secure with my purchase and will use it again and again!
Note in the pic how my board has shifted back somewhat.
I love questions - please feel free to ask!
More significantly, one of the straps on the Yakima rack worked its way loose a bit, becoming slack, on 2 of 3 very short trips with a board. I personally never had that happen in 4-5 years with my Thule rack.
Finally, the Yakima straps are very long and take much more time to feed and stash compared to the Thule straps (yet both racks carry up to 2 boards).
So, I am sending the Yakima back and am putting some oil on my old Thule SUP Taxi.
I used to HATE putting boards on my car because I was scared I did it wrong and they'd fly off. I'm also short, and it is just hard/takes a long time to get everything on my racks, especially with a heavy paddleboard. The installation of these sort of sucked. The instructions are like if an Ikea instruction manual was converted into a different language, re-sketched using Microsoft Paint and then all words were removed as well as every other step.
So, install these and get them set up before your first planned trip. Once they are installed, it takes about 10 seconds to secure a board. I do like the side wheels, but a taller person might find them less helpful/silly. I leave them attached to my roof racks but remove my roof racks when I'm not using them. I typically use them with just one board, but have put two on no problem.
Having a steel core in the strap is reassuring, given that you may have thousands of dollars in board on top of your car. I've had one of the traditional surf straps break while boards were on the car. There is no sinking feeling like seeing your boards air born in your rear view mirror (followed by a couple hundred dollars in repairs).
Also, Although Yakima doesn't recommend it, the SUP down will easily fit 2 30" surf SUPs and a long board in a board bag. May fit 3 SUPs, though I haven't tried it yet. Will easily fit 3-4 prone boards, probably with board bags.
My only complaint is that the sewing on the tip of the strap (the chevron on the tip that goes into the locking mechanism) needs to be reinforced. One of them failed on first use. The strap is still usable, but takes a bit more umph to slide it into lock. Yakima is great in Tech support, so I'm sure they will replace it no problem.
I definitely recommend this surf rack. Not just for SUPs.
