Nakaniko makes a good point with the roof racks. In the early days a lot of people learnt the hard way that the forces acting on the bars and their roof connectors is a lot more than imagined. So nose forward uses this downforce to an advantage provided you have quality roof racks which most people have now days. Roof outlines on some cars are a odd shape though (for roof racks anyhow) and might affect the way the board is carried. A bit like buying a car to go snow skiing only to find that chains can't be fitted.
