Car Hire roof racks

« on: March 30 2008 13:03:00 »

We are going to Baleal for 7-10 days in June/July.  We were hoping to bring our own boards (7' 6' and  7'10') rather than hire. But I've looked at several car hire websites (for pick up at Lisbon) and none of them seem to offer roof racks.  It would be first trip with own boards - can anyone offer any advice - or is it easier to hire?

Hi Phil,

you could buy those removable roof strap racks that you can buy on surf sites.

Also if only two boards/two people, in Spain, I got my 8foot board inside a small car with the front seat down.

I would get the removable rack straps though just in case.

Hi 0000,

Thanks for suggestions.  I think we'll try to get them in car in first instance.
