Roof rack on an mx5


Don’t see many mx5s with a 9’ long board on the roof, thought someone may like the photo of mine

We bought an inflatable kayak so it would fit in the boot (just)!

I’ve been looking for one of these. Can you tell me where you bought it please?

We’ve a kayak as well, great fun but yes it does fill boot.

March, looking for roof rack or kayak ?

Just out of interest, where exactly do you surf in the midlands?

I can get one of these in my nc on passenger seat but it is inflatable :grin:

Anderby Creek.

Saw this in Hastings recently, hard to see the roof rack.


No surf in Rutland unfortunately but have a caravan in a mates field in Cornwall and do the Severn bore occasionally. Interesting car with hard to see rack.

Kayak - for the Norfolk Broads

Ok. We’ve got one and my daughter and her partner, there’s is so much better than ours . They were zooming off into the distance whilst we were zig zagging and going in circles which was hilarious but hard work. I’ll check what type they’ve got, seemed a lot more robust than ours as well.

This is the one my daughter got, ours was cheaper but this one is so much better, almost as good as a rigid kayak

thank you

Thats the one we have, its brilliant and a lot of fun!

Where have you attached that at the back and how? and can it withstand the motorway… I really want to be able to transport my 7’2" board from Bristol to Devon at some point… I have considered the foot-well option but haven’t tried it, so if anyone has any info about whether or not that’s a viable option for the motorway they would be greatly appreciated. Yours looks really good btw :slight_smile:

I’ve a boot rack at the back and roll bar in the middle and it’s strapped to both. Scoops the wind into the cabin a bit tho. Normally when going south with boards I put the hardtop on to which I’ve attached some seat belt eyes. I stap it to those and then tension to front and rear towing eyes. Had 3 boards on the roof at 90 and very secure. Less movement than on normal car with roof rack.
