A New Way to Get Your SUP to the Water

A New Way to Get Your SUP to the Water

Yakima SUPPup
The brutal winter that has frozen most of the country this year has made summer feel further away than the calendar indicates. But have faith. Warmer times are coming. And Yakima hopes to make enjoying the warmer climate a bit easier this May when they release their first stand-up paddleboard car rack. The SUPPup roof rack ($159) will fit most roof rack bar types, and the straps should let you store more than one board. A padded cradle and adjustable pads on the straps are designed to protect your board, while the adjusting sliding block should simplify loading and unloading. An included tail tie-down should add some stability. Start plotting your next road trip now.
