best bet to haul a surfboard?
Hey, I have road bike, and was wondering what a good trailer or rack would be to get to transport a 5'8 shortboard to the beach (about 6-10 miles away) ... was hoping someone would have some cost effective suggestions
Don't know about the cost, but there are commercial surfboard racks. Here's a guy in Santa Cruz with one board already on a rack attached to the back of his bike and getting a second board under his arm so he can carry both.
And here's a DIY alternative:

Just make surf you go slow. I crashed going down the hill to the beach with my surfboard on the back....it wasnt much fun!
thanks guys! Im going to try the pvc diy idea since it seems itll only set me back around 12 bucks.
Nitram that seriously sucks... was your surfboard and bike ok? specially your surfboard ... they get dinged easiar then road bikes
carver surf racks are an easy solution but they cost a bit and can be out of stock at times.
the mini fits a short board and is 99 bucks (seat post mount), that guy above has the max and its like 130? (rack mount) it worked good for my 8'6" long board but i got a xtra so i use that instead now.
Yeah the surfboard was fine but the rack was broken. I wouldnt use a surfboard rack that bolts onto the rack mounts again. Oh yeah and ive made a pvc one too but i crashed and broke that too......hmmm maybe its just my bad riding thats the problem...
or maybe you should move closer to the beach
Similar question here, but would like an opinion about bike brands:
I need to get a cruiser bike and then attach a rack to hold a longboard (surfboard)...4 long blocks from the boardwalk...
Just from what i see in the city (NYC), i notice that a lot of them are Schwinns.
This is what I will probably get without any input:
Bike looks pretty cute, not too expensive...
Any comments or alternative suggestions? Thanks.
