To solve the strap/rail damage issue, I always slipped a small piece of carpet (8 cm square) under the straps at the corner. I would also twist the strap as it ran across the bottom of the board so it wouldn't "flutter" and mark/damage the board.

Basically any rock hit on a horizontal surface (top or bottom) should be insignificant. However, the leading edge (nose or tail) are at the greatest risk since the hit will be straight on rather than at a parallel angle.
