Video Transcript for Thule 18 inch Surf Pad Review

Today were going to be taking a look at the Thule Surf Pad Crossbar Pad for Aero, Xsporter and Factory Bars, 18 inches in length, part number TH803. The Thule Surf Pad is a great way to carry your surfboards, kayaks, canoes and other cargo up on the roof. The soft pads prevent your gear from getting scratch or ding during transit. The Thule Surf Pad works very well with the Thule Express Strap and other tie-downs that secure your cargo to your vehicles roof rack. Well open up the slit in the bottom of the pad to fit it over the bar. Well then close the hook and loop fastener and tie off the two bungees at each end. Well then repeat the same process for the rear pad.

When loading your paddleboard, you want to make sure that the fin at the rear of the board is facing the front of the vehicle. Were going to start off by installing Thule Express Strap on the opposite side of the vehicle on which we loaded up our paddleboard. Well start with the black hook and the small loop holding them together, take one in around the underside of the bar and take the black hook and small loop and insert it into the larger loop. Well pull it up tight, and throw the remaining strap over the vehicle. Now you want to make sure when looping the strap around the load bar that is on the inside of the foot. Well then take the black hoop up to the zone loop, here in the other portion of the strap, like so.

Well then pull the strap tight and repeat the same process for the rear strap. That our complete todays review of the Thule Surf Pad Crossbar Pad for Aero, Xsporter and Factory Bars, 18 inches in length, part number TH803. .

I've been very happy with my Thule Surf Crossbar Pads. They do not slide at all once secured and do a great job of protecting my Suburban. Another great Thule product from etrailer.com 367235

The product arrived in a timely manner with specific information as to where it was all of the time. There was a credit card issue in the initial order and when I called I was pleasantly surprised to talk with a person who expressed sincere interest in my experience with the company The product is of high quality and is heavy duty, something which I was concerned about. It exceeded my expectations. 337475

I called for help buying the right rack, with some specific needs. Plus, we were hoping to get it pretty quickly. They were super helpful. We ended up with a Rhino rack - easy to install and pretty sturdy too. It fits our Thule carrier and a stand up paddle board quite nicely (both at the same time). 219212

Thank you for following up Rachael. We love these products. We are using them this Memorial Weekend. Makes it so easy to carry both my kayak and my wifes SUP. There is room for both and they are easy to secure. When we go camping with our travel trailer it leaves room for other things to be stored in the bed of my pickup. Thanks again and God bless!

Do you have a question about this Watersport Carrier?


  • Can Foam Blocks Fit Around TracRac Ladder Rack Bars to Carry a Kayak
  • The TracRac ladder rack bars are quite large; too large for me to be comfortable saying that you could trim away foam blocks # SR5525 to fit around them. But I do have a solution for you. You can use the Thule Surf Pads # TH803 to protect the hull of the kayak. These pads will fit the old Thule Xsporter bars which are similar in shape and size to the TracRac bars. You would then just need bow and stern tie downs to secure the kayak to the TracRac bars, # TH855XT.

  • How to Transport Kayaks with Thule TracRac TracOne Ladder Rack
  • Because of the size of the crossbars on the Thule TracRac TracOne Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH27000XTB that you referenced, most standard kayak carriers will not work. To transport kayaks with this system, I recommend using the Thule Surf Pad # TH803. This split-bottom pad will simply wrap around the crossbars to provide soft pads for your kayaks to rest on. You can then add the Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes # TH855XT to safely secure the kayaks to your truck. I have attached a couple...

  • Ladder Rack Needed to Carry a Canoe with a 2013 Ram 1500 with BAKFlip G2 Tonneau Cover
  • Since the BAKFlip G2 Hard Tonneau Cover, part # BAK26207 or # BAK26203 , mounts inside the bed rails of your 2013 Ram 1500 you definitely can install the TracRac SR! This is one of the best ladder racks out there and will do a great job for hauling your canoe as well as other equipment you may need. As long as your Ram doesn't have the RamBox then you can use part # TH43003XT-784 for a 5-1/2' bed or part # TH43003XT-501 for a 6-1/2' bed. If you are wanting the over-the-cab extension...

  • TracRac Ladder Rack Recommendation for 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 with Kayak Carrier
  • For your 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 the TracRac Ladder Rack part # TH27000XTB is a confirmed fit and will work well. The TracRac ladder rack crossbars are too large for kayak carriers but I have a solution for you. You can use the Thule Surf Pads # TH803 to protect the hull of the kayak. These pads will fit the old Thule Xsporter bars which are similar in shape and size to the TracRac bars. You would then just need bow and stern tie downs to secure the kayak to the TracRac bars, # TH855XT.

  • Can a Kayak Carrier be Used on TracRac Ladder Rack Crossbars

  • Rack Options For Carrying A Paddleboard And Kayak
  • If you have crossbars on your vehicle we may be able to come up with a solution for you to be able to carry a kayak and a paddleboard at the same time. You will need to determine if you have enough room to hold both items. I recommend the Thule SUP Shuttle Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier, part # TH811XT. It has a telescoping design that will allow paddle boards up to 34 inches wide. This carrier fits round, square, aero, elliptical and most factory crossbars, and can hold up to 2 paddleboards....

  • Which Thule Surf Pads Will Fit the Factory Roof Rack Crossbars on a 2015 Subaru Outback
  • I checked with Thule and the recommended crossbar pads for the factory crossbars on your 2015 Subaru Outback are the 18 inch models, # TH803. You can also use the 24 inch model # TH804. I have linked a video review for you.

  • Options for Carrying a Surfboard and Duffle Bags on a 2006 Toyota Prius
  • You have a few different options for carrying your surfboards and duffel bags on your 2006 Toyota Prius, but the size and weight of your surfboards and duffel bags will determine which options will work best for you. First, I definitely recommend adding a roof rack if you plan on carrying anything on your roof because vehicle roofs were not designed to support much weight. Also, before loading any cargo on a roof rack, you will want to check your owners manual to verify the weight capacity...

  • What Size Crossbars Does Thule Hull-A-Port XT Fit
  • The Hull-A-Port XT kayak carrier, part # TH848, fits crossbars up to 3.1 inches wide and 1.4 inches tall so it should fit your crossbars with no issue. I also verified with Thule that they've confirmed it to fit your 2015 Toyota Sienna if it's a factory roof rack. Padding isn't required but it certainly wouldn't hurt. You can use a Thule Surf Pad, part # TH803 if you want. You do need additional straps and tie-downs for the second boat using parts # TH855XT and # TH521. Another...

  • Kayak Carrier Recommendation for Thule Xspsorter Ladder Rack
  • The crossbars on the Thule Xsporter ladder racks are too large for the hardware that comes with the Malone MegaWing Sit-On-Top Kayak Carrier # MPG207. What you could possibly do is use the Hull-Port, # TH834 with the adapter # THXADAPT3, on your Xsporter. This carrier accepts a kayak up to 36 inches wide and 75 pounds. Another option is to use Thule Surf Pads # TH803 with box and stern tie downs # TH855XT.

  • Recommended TracRac Ladder System On 2008 Toyota Tacoma For Two 10 Foot Kayaks
  • For your 2008 Toyota Tacoma, the system you are referring to and that I recommend is the T-Rac Pro2 Ladder Rack for 2005 to 2015 Toyota Tacoma - Over-the-Cab Extension - 1,000 lbs # TH37004XT-EX. This is a confirmed fit for your vehicle and has a max load capacity of 1000 lbs. It has a crossbar length of 65 inches, so you will have no problem carrying two 10 foot kayaks on this rack. This system comes with 4 heavy-duty load stops, but for further security you can use the Tie-Down Loops...

  • Which Thule Surf Pads Will Fit Factory Roof Rack Crossbars on a 2011 Honda CRV
  • Yes, I checked with Thule and their Surf Pad part # TH804 is a confirmed fit for the factory crossbars of your 2011 Honda CR-V. This is the 24 inch pad. The 18 inch pad part # TH803 is also a fit.

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier for TracRac Crossbars
  • I do have a solution for you, however the kayak saddles you mentioned are no longer available from the manufacturer. Because of the larger size of the TracRac crossbars, we have found that the best solution for transporting kayaks is with the Thule Surf Pad # TH803. These will wrap around the bars to protect the kayaks during transport. You can then just add a set of Tie-Downs # TH855XT to secure everything into place. I have attached a couple short video demonstrations on this system...

  • Fit of Thule T-Rac Pro2 Truck bed Ladder Rack on 2012 Tacoma Doublecab Shortbed
  • According to our friends at Thule, the T-rack Pro2 Truck Bed Ladder Rack, # TH37004XT, will fit all models of the 2012 Toyota Tacoma, regardless of bed size. It comes with 4 heavy-duty load stops that can hold your SUPs from moving side to side, but I also recommend adding some pads like the Thule Surf Pad, # TH803, and straps like part # TH531.

  • Tonneau Cover that Works w/TracRac Sliding Ladder Rack on 2014 Nissan Titan 5-1/2' Bed w/Utili-Track
  • For your 2014 Nissan Titan, the only Tonneau cover that we know works with TracRac sliding ladder rack # TA21606-02-02 is the Revolver, # BAK39505. Other covers have proven to be problematic with varying degrees of contact between the ladder rack rails and the Tonneau cover itself. You can use the ladder rack but will want to remove the Tonneau cover while the ladder rack is mounted to your 2014 Nissan Titan. While I believe there is a very good chance the 2 parts will work fine together...

  • Surfboard Carrying Suggestions for 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • The roof racks that will fit your vehicle will depend on the roof of your Grand Cherokee. If your roof has the flush-mounted rails with chrome strips that run along the edges of the roof, I'd recommend a Vortex Aero Crossbar rack from Rhino Rack, which consists of the following parts: Vortex Aero Crossbar in Black, part # RRVA126B-2 or in Silver, part # RRVA126S-2 Leg Kit, part # RRRCL4 Fit Kit, part # RRRCP27-BK You could use the Rhino Rack Surfboard carrier, part # RRRWP03.
