Video Transcript for Thule Surf Pad Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Thule Surf Pad Crossbar Pad for Aero, Exporter, and Factory Bars, 24 inches in length, part number TH804. These Thule Surf Pads will protect your surfboards, kayaks, canoes, and other cargo from scratches and dings, during transport. The UV-resistant fabric is long lasting. The elastic cords built into the ends cinch the pad to the bar. This part number comes with two crossbar pads, and it comes with a lifetime warranty. Now we'll go ahead and install the surfboard pads onto our crossbars. We'll first need to untie the bungees at each end of the pad, and undo the hook-and-loop strap.

We're going to repeat the same process for the other pad. With everything untied, we'll go ahead and fit it to our load bars. We'll take the slot on the underside of the pad, and fit the bar into the slot. We'll then bring up the hook-and-loop strap, and tie the two bungee'd ends around the bar. Repeat the same process for the rear bar. When loading up your paddle board, you want to make sure that the fin, here at the rear of the board, is at the front of the vehicle.

Now, with our paddle board loaded up, we'll be using Thule's Express Straps, part number TH531, to secure our paddle board to our roof rack. We'll now start on the opposite side of the vehicle on which we load our paddle board. We'll take the end of the Express Strap with the black hook, and the end with the small loop, with the Thule logo. We'll then take the other end, and fit it into the larger loop. We'll then pull everything out, and throw the remaining strap over the vehicle.

We'll then bring the strap around the bar, making sure it is on the inside of our foot. We'll then bring the black hook around, and hook it to the pre-sewn loops on the other side of the strap. With this in place, we can then pull the strap tight to secure the front part of the paddle board to the front bar. We'll then repeat the same process for the rear strap. After securing the excess slack, that will complete today's review of the Thule Surf Pad Crossbar Pad for Aero, Exporter, and Factory Bars, 24 inches in length, part number TH804. .

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

Comments

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!

Review from a similar Thule Surf Pad in Watersport Carriers


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

  • Crossbar Pads That Fit the TracRac Ladder Crossbars
  • For a set of crossbar pads compatible with the TracRac Ladder Rack and are longer than 18" I recommend using the Thule Surf Pad part # TH804 which are 24" long or the Malone Aero 18 Premium Crossbar Pad for Stand-Up Paddleboards part # MPG380-30 which are 30" long.

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier for TracRac TracONE Truck Bed Ladder Rack
  • I do have a solution for you, however I spoke with my contact at Thule (who manufactures the TracRac systems) and he stated that J-Style Kayak carriers are not compatible with the TracOne Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH27000XTB that you referenced in your question. This is because the crossbars on the ladder rack are simply too wide for the J-Style carriers to mount properly. I instead recommend looking at the Thule Surf Pad # TH804 to protect and support your kayaks on the ladder rack....

  • How to Carry a Kayak and a Canoe with a 2016 Ram 1500
  • We have a couple of different options for you to haul a kayak and canoe with your 2016 Dodge Ram. One way to haul your kayak and canoe is with a truck bed ladder rack. I recommend going with the TracRac TracONE Ladder Rack # TA27000XTB. This is rated for 800 lbs so you can use it for more than just hauling your kayak and canoe. It is made of aluminum so it is strong and rustproof but also lightweight. You will need to use pads, like the Thule Surf Pad # TH804, to load your kayaks on...

  • What Crossbar Pads Will Work With the TracRac Ladder Rack Crossbars
  • I do have a crossbar pad that will work with the the TracRack crossbars but the Malone SUP 30 Rack Pad Kit with Tie-Downs part # MPG312 will not as the crossbars themselves are wider than the actual pad. For a set of crossbar pads that will work with the TracRack crossbars I recommend using the Thule Surf Pad part # TH804. You will also want to use the Thule Express Surf Strap part # TH531 to secure the cargo onto the pads.

  • Roof Rack and Surfboard or SUP Pads for 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited
  • The Thule Crossbar Pad for Square Bars # TH802 cannot be used with the Thule AirScreen Fairing # TH8703 on the roof rack for your 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited that consists of Thule Rapid Gutter Feet # TH300R and Thule SquareBar Crossbars # TH712500 because the clamps of the fairing will interfere with the pads. If you want to use a fairing the best option to carry your surfboards or SUPs is the Malone Maui Stand-Up Paddleboard and Surfboard Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG119M (pictured)....

  • Kayak Carrier to Fit TracRac SR Ladder Rack
  • Our kayak support pads like Thule # TH804 have not been tested on the SR ladder rack # TH43002XT-501 and my contact at Thule could not assure me they are compatible. But if you want to use a multi-kayak carrier you can use the Stacker kayak carrier # TH830 on the TracRac SR ladder rack using the adapter # THXADAPT3. The bolts in this kit are long enough to allow it to fit the taller bars on your TracRac ladder rack. One Stacker can transport up to 4 kayaks.

  • SUP and Surfboard Carrier for 2016 Subaru Forester With Factory Roof Rack
  • I recommend checking out the Thule Shuttle # TH811XT, which is a confirmed fit for the factory roof rack on your 2016 Subaru Forester and can carry 2 surfboards or SUPs (the SUPs can be a maximum of 34" wide). It is easy to install with clamp-on brackets and comes with multiple tie-down straps to keep your boards in place. Your other option is to use the Thule Surf Pad # TH804 which is also a fit for your '16 Forester's factory rack; you would need to use tie-downs such as the Thule...

  • Aero Roof Rack and Kayak Carriers for 2019 Toyota Tundra
  • A quieter aero-style type roof rack is a good choice for your 2019 Tundra and we have options in this type for both the Tundra CrewMax and Double cabs. My favorite is the Rhino-Rack Vortex system, which is both one of the better designs and one of the better values in a quality aero-style roof rack. For a black roof rack use parts # RRVA150B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK079. This setup fits both cab styles. The 59-inch bars have rubber strips to reduce wind noise and these can be removed to...

  • Thule Roof Rack For A 2013 Honda Accord
  • Manufacturers like Thule make many roof racks for many different vehicles. Although in most cases the load bars and feet are the same from one make of vehicle to another, the vehicle specific hardware kits are different. It is easier for the manufactures to offer the bars, feet and hardware kits separately than to make kits for specific make an model vehicles. I recommend for your Honda Accord the Thule WingBar Roof Rack # TH711400, # TH480R, and # THKIT1720 is the roof rack . The WingBars...

  • Can Yakima Kayak Carrier Work With TracRac Crossbar
  • The size of the TracRac crossbars will not let you install the Yakima Kayak Carrier # Y04083-04082. The only option is to use Thule Surf Pad # TH804. You will also want some tie-downs to secure the bow and stern of the kayak. I also recommend bow and stern tie-downs like the Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes # TH855XT.

  • Can Two Ocean Frenzy Kayaks Be Carried On Thule The Stacker # TH530
  • I called my contact at Thule and asked about your Ocean Frenzy kayaks, and if they will work with the Stacker # TH830. They told me that since you sit on top of your kayaks, they do not recommend placing them on their side with the Stacker. They recommend carrying them hull side down so they don't have a problem with the wind. You may want to look at the Thule Surf Pad # TH804. These measure 24 inches long and will fit standard crossbars. For tie-downs I recommend cam buckle...

  • Compatibility of Ladder Rollers with TracRac Ladder Rack for Transporting 15-Foot Boat
  • The base weight of a Riverhawk B52 is 165-lbs so when equipped with a usual complement of gear let's say it comes in near 200-lbs. This weight can be carried by your combination of Trac Rac truck bed ladder rack and cab-mounted roof rack. For a bigger boat like this it is a good idea to split the load between the two systems. The three ladder rollers you referenced, parts # RR1500, # SR680 and # RR1375, are meant for a specific Rhino-Rack crossbars and they would not work on the Trac...

  • Roof Rack Pads that Will Fit a MaxxTow Ladder Rack to Carry Stand Up Paddleboards
  • Yes we do have some pads that will fit the crossbars on the MaxxTow ladder rack # MT70423. They are from Thule, # TH804. This pads will fit the large bars on Thule ladder racks that are nearly identical to the MaxxTow bars. Each pad is 24 inches long. I also recommend the Thule Express Surf Strap # TH531 to secure the SUPs to the ladder rack. The Express straps come in quantities of 2.

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier to Use on Thule Xsporter Truck Rack
  • To transport your 120 Wildreness Pungo Kayak with your Thule Xsporter Truck Rack, I recommend looking at the Thule Surf Pad - Crossbar Pad # TH804. These pads are compatible with the Xsporter crossbars and will work well for hauling your kayak. The pads feature a split-bottom design that will wrap around the bars on your system, and elastic cords at the ends will cinch the pad into place. I have attached a video demonstration of this system so you can see exactly how it works. You...

  • How to Carry a Kayak on TracRac Ladder Rack on 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor
  • There are options for you to carry kayaks with your 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor on the TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack TA21508-02, though standard carriers will not work due to the width of the ladder rack's bars. Instead, I recommend using the Thule Surf Pad # TH804 to wrap around the TracRac bars, and using Thule Load Strap Cinch Straps # TH521 with the Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes # TH855XT. These 24" pads along with the tie-down straps will allow you to secure your kayaks...

  • Recommended TracRack System For 2017 Toyota Tundra To Carry 12 Foot Aluminum Boat
  • I have no hesitations with you using a TracRac System with a 12 foot aluminum boat weighing around 250 lbs. The TracRac G2 has been discontinued and replaced with the SR (Sliding Rack) the only change is in name. If you have a 6-1/2 foot bed, I recommend the # TH43002XT-610EX. If you have an 8 foot bed, I recommend the # TH43002XT-011 or the # TH43003XT-510 with over the cab extention. Each rack comes with 4 load stops, but if you want more tie down points I recommend the Tie-Down...

  • Can you Carry Three Kayaks on a 2018 Honda CR-V
  • The owner's manual for your 2018 Honda CR-V states that the roof load capacity for your vehicle is 165 lbs. This means that weight of the kayaks, roof rack, and carrier must not exceed the above capacity. In addition to weight restraints, you are also going to have the obviously size restriction issue. One of the only options we have to haul three kayaks on the roof of a vehicle is with the Thule Stacker part # TH830. However, it is not a guarantee that you will be able to fit all three...

The # SR1116 is needed for roofs that have curved or short roofs like your Accord. I called my contact at SportRack and asked about the recommendation to remove the roof rack when not in use and they told me it is dues to the wear and tear on the roof rack when empty and also the wear on the vehicle roof.
