Surfboard bike rack: easy to install and great for surfers | Photo: Almond Surfboards

Surfboard bike racks are the best way of traveling to your local surf spot without spending money on gas.

Do you live near your favorite surf spots, but it is too far to walk to the waves? Are you spending your monthly income on expensive car trips to the nearby surf breaks?

Fortunately, there will always be surfboard bike racks, so that you can quickly move from your house to the beach without wasting money and polluting the atmosphere.

Many times, good waves are within a long walking distance. But bicycles are fast and will warm up your legs before hitting the line-up.

There are three ways of transporting surfboards on a bike: side-mounted, rear-mounted and upright-mounted.

Surfboard bike rack: the Huntington Beach way

The most popular way of driving a bicycle with your surfboard is using a side-mounted rack. Although your bike gets a bit wider, you won't face safety issues, and wind won't prevent you from speeding up.

Rear-mounted surfboard racks leave your both sides free but may blow you from side to side when the wind is stronger. The upright mounted rack model puts your surfboard in a vertical position, right behind the seat.

Finally, there are also surfboard trailers equipped with wheels, which allow you to carry your surfboard and extra gear on an independent, rear-mounted vehicle. These models, however, will require special attention when turning and going up and down steep roads and streets.
