Your truck's payload has plenty of room for carting around your long board, but the ride isn't exactly gentle. One good pothole is all it takes to create a major crack, and that's a one-way ticket to a waterlogged board. For maximum protection while you're driving to and from the shore, equip your pickup with the Thule Surfboard Tailgate Pad.
Unlike a sandy towel draped over the side of your bed, the Thule Surfboard Tailgate Pad adds a thick cushion that caresses your wave carver. It's overstuffed with high-density foam padding that absorbs every bump, knock and thump. Plus, the padding is stitched into UV-safe fabric that won't fade even when left out in the sun.
Installing the Thule Surfboard Tailgate Pad is easier than tying your shoes. Simply run the straps around your tailgate, cinch them down and tighten the nose strap to the board. Voila—you're ready to make a run to your favorite break. Measuring in at 18" wide, the Surfboard Tailgate Pad is big enough to handle almost any surfboard or stand-up paddleboard. And, it's backed by a Lifetime Warranty.
