Mercedes Benz conducted a wind tunnel test on boards carried on roof racks and the findings showed that wind noise and drag could be reduced by positioning the equipment on the car with the nose toward the front of the car, the deck facing down and the nose overhanging the roof as little as possible. This study is posted in the book “Start Windsurfing Right!”
