Hi, found this 5 year old thread http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?t=2757 about putting surfboards on top of the Leaf, but wondering if anyone has any updated experience with boards on top? I am putting my shortboards inside the car, but looking for carrying two longboards on top for two occupants inside when the waves are small, about 1-2 days a week on average.
To increase my range when I don't have a longboard on top (99% of the time), I'm not planning to install a permanent roof rack like I had on my last car. I'm close to buying soft roof racks on Amazon which strap through the car and take a few minutes of assembly time every time you want to install them. Is this the preferred method or are there some faster to install removable roof racks for the Leaf? Are there any mods/improvements you have made to stock racks to make them work better on your Leaf?
