Yakima MultiMounts for paddles

I’ve looked at the MultiMounts that attach to my roof rack, but has anyone made something less expensive? Maybe as simple as some foam wrapped around the crossbars and then a figure eight tie down? $50 for paddle transport (MultiMounts) is more than I care to invest.


Do not mount your paddle on the roof.
The millions of micro cycles it will get put through will kill it.

Good enough!

Multimounts work
I have a 1 piece 230cm foam-cored carbon paddle that I carried on my rack for about three years, 100 days a year. No ill effects whatsoever. The multimounts hold the paddle or up to four paddles really well. If you have a small car and a one piece paddle, it’s definitely better than having the paddle wedged between your dash and the back window.
