A while back I wrote a blog post about surfboard bike racks. I hadn’t heard about surfboard racks before, I am not a surfer, but the idea of having a rack that you can install on your bike to carry a surfboard was, and still is, interesting.
I have been reading and researching about biking and hiking activities that you can do at the beach (I guess I don’t want to admit that summer is almost over :)), and the surfboard rack popped up on my google page again. I have decided to write a more detailed blog about one of the most popular ones (according to Amazon customers) hoping that I can provide some quick but good information people that are interested in a longboard surfboard bike rack.
Here is what I have found.

I hadn’t heard of surfboard bike racks until I started doing some research for bike racks for this blog. I am not a surfer myself, although I have always loved watching them. I spent a good amount of time watching the surfers when I visited Manhattan Beach in California a few years back. They are a talented bunch, to say the least.
I assumed they either carried their surfboards to the beach or just used their cars. If the beach is a walking distance away, looks like there is a cheaper way to bring your surfboard to the beach with you and save some gas along the way. Ride your bike, warm up the legs and bring your surfboard with you. Sounds like a win-win situation to me.
