Hey Guys,

Trying to get some exposure here. If your interested please check out this kickstarter page. We have a press release. So to explain things better, here it is. Thanks!


A new product making it easier to mount your surfboard on a roof rack has just launched on Kickstarter. Created by an aerospace engineer living in San Diego, this new product has the potential to redefine surfboard transportation. It takes the hassle out of getting your board to the beach.

The aerospace engineer, Benjamin Taylor, says he invented it while on his way into work.

“One day while driving into work I had a light bulb moment!” he says.

Since then Taylor has been designing and engineering the CrossBo to work with standard roof rack systems and almost any surfboard. He believes there are a lot of surfers out there looking for a solution like this. A product that is fast, easy and simple to use and doesn’t require bolted-on hardware.

The CrossBo will be on Kickstarter for 30 days (ending September 3rd) and Taylor hopes to raise more than $90,000 to pay for expensive tooling and manufacturing costs. Following that, if this surfboard product is successful, he plans to use the same idea for SUPs, skis and snowboards.

the video wouldn't play past the commentary "it takes so long to tie a surfboard down & it's so complicated"
If you find tying a surf board difficult down how did you get engineering qualifications :?: >><< :-?
The prototype #1 looks like it cost about $8ea what will the finished product retail for?
How will it be better than the pvc tube & fittings model?
What colours does it come in?
How will it take up less space in the car than complex tie down straps?
If I ask any more questions I may appear cynical.
