My choice is to use our carrying loops with my board on my head to haul down the trail. This way the board balances well and is secure when a wind gust comes. Newf Surf (www.newfsurfboard.wpengine.com) bags comes with dual carrying straps and multiple loops to transport and carry your board. Our bags are on sale starting $33.00, 3 designs, colors and sizes 5’4″-14’0″. Made in California by a small business, a money back guarantee and a lifetime warranty.
