If you’re looking for a quick and easily implemented solution for transporting watersports equipment to the beach (or lake/river) then the HandiRack HR20 inflatable racking system could fit the bill nicely.
Here’s what I had to say about how the HR20 HandiRack performed.

Loco stand up paddle boarding recently got in touch wanting a series of articles a little different to normal. The brand required something appealing to SUPers but also attractive to ‘other’ extreme sports aficionados – tricky!
I think I’ve cracked it with SUP Wars though?
Take one, seemingly, non related action sport and chuck it in the ring with stand up paddle boarding – simples! So without further ado, here’s the first in a regular series that you can find on the Loco blog – SUP Wars: SUP vs wingsuiting…

W4CR is a charity that was set up by watersports fanatic David Tuttlebee who fought a long standing battle against cancer. His charity aims to raise awareness and drum up funds for continued research into a disease that affects so many lives.
Watersports 4 Cancer Research is a way all saltwater enthusiasts can use their hobby to help kick the BIG C into touch.
Saturday 15th June sees the annual Sunrise to Sunset 24hr watersports marathon challenge where participants head onto the water at dawns crack and finish up at sunset – raising money for charity in the process.
For anyone thinking of having a bash then head over to sitons.com for a run down of what the Sunrise to Sunset event is all about.
