Video Transcript for Thule AeroCrossbars SUP and Surfboard Pads Review

Adam: Hi everyone, Adam with Etrailer.com. Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Thule Surf Pads. What they're going to do is just going to protect your boards from any scratches or abrasions and just give you a nice cushioned pad to load up all your gear, whether it be a paddleboard, as you see here, or you could have a surfboard or two, whatever it is. It's definitely going to take care of your goods just so they don't get damaged.These surf pads are going to come in two different sizes. We do have the 30 inch one installed right now. It's pretty much an ideal length for our paddleboard here, but we also do have a 20 inch one as well.

As you can see here, it's not going to span the whole width of our paddleboard, so be sure to check the width of your surfboard or paddleboard before you buy. Both sizes are going to have a nylon construction and they are going to resist against UV, so you can be rest assured that it won't fade over time. They do have an integrative no slip grip on top, so you can be rest assured that your boards will have optimal grip and they'll stay on your roof whenever you're hauling them around.As you can see here, these surfboard pads, they are only going to sit up about an inch and a half. It's definitely going to get you a lot less height added to your vehicle whenever you're hauling anything around. Another thing I thought about, a lot of these paddleboards, you can get them where they're air filled.

With these pads, it's going to give a little bit more give than just our hard crossbars. It's going to be a little bit easier on there, so you don't have to worry about popping them whenever you're strapping them down.We do have the wing bar Evos on here now. They're going to be compatible with these on top of the AeroBlades, the ProBars and the Xsporter Pros. Those are just the Thule style crossbars that they will be compatible with. If you have another brand that has relative the same shape, they'll work with those as well.

These are, in my opinion, extremely easy to install. You don't need any tools, it's just three hook and loops underneath and it wraps around your bars. It's an extremely economical choice as well. It's really easy, so let's just go ahead and show you.The first thing you want to do is just undo these hook and loops, there is going to be three of them. Once we get all those undone here, we can go ahead and throw it up top on our bar and then wrap these underneath.

I always usually favor the passenger side just in case I'm on the highway and I have to pull over and check and make sure everything's nice and secure still. Then, we can go ahead and do the same exact thing for our back bar.Then, we can go ahead and load up our board. Once you get your board up and into place, you can go ahead and strap them down. We do have a lot of different straps to choose from. If you don't have any, go on Etrailer.com and pick some out that's right for you. These that we picked here are going to be Thule and they kind of match my board, which I kind of like.Well everyone, that's going to do it for our look at the Thule Surf Pads.

  • 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 20 inch models, # TH845000. I have linked a video review for you.

  • 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 # TH845000 is a confirmed fit for the factory crossbars of your 2011 Honda CR-V. This is the 20 inch pad.

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier for Ford Edge with 21 Inch Crossbar Spread
    As you mentioned in your question, most kayak carriers have a standard minimum crossbar spread of 24 inches. With the 21 inch spread on your Ford Edge roof rack, I recommend looking at the Thule Surf Pad # TH845000. These pads feature a split-bottom design that will simply wrap around the crossbars on your roof rack to provide a soft padding for your kayak. You will then be able to load the kayak hull side down/upside down without harming the kayak or crossbars. This will work just fine...

  • 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 # TH845000. 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...

  • Recommended Surf Pads That Will Fit Thule Aero Crossbars
    The replacement pads we offer that fit Aero bars are part # TH844000 for a 30 inch pad and part # TH845000 for an 20 inch pad. These come with a quantity of 2 in the package and are designed to fit Thule Rapid Aero, AeroBlade and Xsporter load bars and most factory racks.

  • Recommended Thule SUP Pads for 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe with Factory Crossbars
    The Thule SUP and Surfboard Pads for AeroCrossbars - 20" Long - Qty 2 # TH845000 you were looking at are designed to fit on both aero style bars and most factory crossbars, so these would be my recommendation. These are 20" long and have an anti-slip surface to help keep the board in place. I also recommend using the Thule Multipurpose Locking Straps with Rubber Housings - 13' Long - Qty 2 # TH831, which will allow you to secure your board to the pads and keep them from slipping and safe...

  • 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 # TH845000. 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...

  • What Surfboard Pads fit My Thule TracRac TracONE Crossbars?
    Yes! The only surfboard pads we have for your TracONE ladder rack with 4" x 1-1/2" crossbars is the Thule SUP and Surfboard Pads # TH845000. The strechable material allows the pads to expand to fit the bars. I went ahead and attached a picture of a neighbor review who used the pads on his TracONE ladder rack with the same crossbars dimensions. If you need straps/ties to secure your surfboard, that is the Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes w/ Ratchets and Strap Loops - 13' - Qty 2 # TH855XT.

  • Can Thule Surf Strap Secure a Surfboard to Thule Aeroblade Bar
    Usually people use a surf pad like the part # TH845000 with the strap kit part # TH531 that you referenced to secure a board to the roof rack of a vehicle. This would be a great option for your Tiguan that has Thule Aeroblade or the newer WingBar crossbars part # TH711420.

  • Kayak Carrier and Paddleboard Carrier Recommendation for 2012 Acura MDX Crossbars
    The Thule Hull a Port part # TH834 is a confirmed fit for the factory crossbars of your 2012 Acura MDX so it will do a great job for the kayak. And then for the paddleboard the Thule Sup Taxi part # TH810001 is a confirmed fit that will work well too. These two racks would be great options. If you wanted to go with a pad style carrier for the paddleboard the part # TH845000 is also a confirmed fit for the crossbars of your vehicle.

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier for 4 Inch Wide Crossbars on 2003 Hummer H2
    Most standard kayak carriers, such as the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073, are designed to mount onto crossbars that are up to 3-1/2 inches wide. There is not a bolt-mounting carrier available that will fit the wider 4 inch bars you have on your 2003 Hummer H2. For this reason, I recommend looking at the Thule Surf Pad # TH845000 along with the Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes # TH531. These pads will wrap around the 4 inch wide crossbars on your vehicle to provide a soft resting point...

  • 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 # TH845000. You will also want to use the Thule Express Surf Strap part # TH531 to secure the cargo onto the pads.

  • Replacement Kayak Carrier for First Generation Thule Hull-A-Port with Damaged Base
    I checked with Thule and like you said they have all of the replacement parts essentially for the first generation Hullaport that you have except what you mentioned. This is most likely due to age at this point as after a number of years they start cutting back on the replacement parts they offer for the rack and their typical philosophy for base replacement parts on their bike racks is that if the base/main shank of the rack has been damaged the rest of the rack/carrier is compromised...

  • 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, # TH845000, and straps like part # TH531.

  • Can a Kayak Carrier be Used on TracRac Ladder Rack Crossbars
    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 # TH845000 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.

  • 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 # TH845000 to protect and support your kayaks on the ladder rack....

  • Compatibility of the Thule Glide and Set Kayak Carrier and the TracRac TracOne Rack
    I have a solution for you. The Thule # TH896 kayak carrier will mount to the TracRac bar using the t-track hardware. The TracRac bars are 4 inches wide and the wrap around mount of the carrier can mount to a maximum crossbar width of 3-5/8 inches. Another option I recommend is the Thule Crossbar Pad, # TH845000, on your TracRac bars. These pads will provide a padded mounting spot to rest your kayak on top of your TracRac bars. The pads are sold in the pair and measure 20 inches long. I...

  • Recommended Rack System For Carrying Kayaks With a 2022 Jeep Gladiator
    I recommend the Thule Xsporter Pro Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH500XTB for your 2022 Jeep Gladiator. This rack is height adjustable allowing you to position the kayaks just above your roof line. The rack uses aero designed bars that prevent whistling by directing the air above and below the bars. The Thule SUP and Surfboard Pads # TH845000 will help protect the kayaks while on the rack. And the Thule Load Strap Cinch Straps # TH521 use a cam buckle strap that helps prevent overtightening...

  • Surfboard or SUP Pads & Thule Roof Rack for 2018 Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited Hard Top
    On your 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, the Thule Surf Pad # TH845000 will work perfectly with the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars # TH711520 (Black) or # TH711500 (Silver) and Thule Rapid Gutter Feet # TH300R. The WingBar crossbars are aerodynamic with a tapered shape and have integrated WindDiffusers which minimize wind noise so you can drive in peace. A great option to tie down your boards with the pads are the Thule Express Surf Strap - Stretchable Tie-Down # TH531. I have added links to...

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 # TH845000 to protect the hull of the kayak.

    Because of the size of the TracRac ladder rack crossbars the Yakima Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Saddle Style with Rollers - Clamp On Item # Y04083-04082 will not fit properly. Pretty much the only option is to use Thule Surf Pad # TH845000. You will also want some tie-downs to secure the bow and stern of the kayak. I recommend Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes w/ Ratchets and Strap Loops - 13' - Qty 2 - # TH855XT.

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.
