Warm weather means it’s the best time of the year to hit the water. But whether you live a short or long drive from your favourite water spot, you’ll still need to transport your equipment. Canberra Towbar Fitters have put together some tips and hints on how to safely carry water sport equipment.
What Water Sport Equipment can you Carry on Your Car?
- Surf boards
- Wake boards
- Stand up paddle boards
- Don’t forget your oar or paddle as well
Transporting Equipment Safely
To transport your equipment safely, you’ll need a good set of roof racks (see our roof rack blog here) and specific holders for the equipment you are carrying.
We have kayak and canoe holders that help carry more than one at a time or specific straps for your boards that will not damage them but tie them securely.
At Canberra Towbar Fitters, we even have products that will assist you in loading your gear up onto the roof of your car.
All products we sell come with full fitting instructions both online and in paper so if you are handy, you can fit them yourself.
Our Fitting Services
We offer a full supply and fit service in house and most products only take an hour or so to fit.
You can also come in and talk with our team and we will supply you with what you need and give you some tips on how to put them on yourself.
