I also carry my boards upside down and nose forward (now always in bags). In the past you could really damage the hull with over-tightened straps plus solar heat. I remember polyethylene and also ASA boards with very deep marks. However you don't need to tighten the straps too much, moreover with a soft tube around the bars. The only advantage I see with tail forward is that you can check the fin through you windshield so you know the board is still on the roof.
